With this being my 3rd baby, I'm constantly wary of purchasing different items because I'm worried they will be recalled for this, that, or the other reason. Cribs, strollers, carseats, even formula (I know there's more like lead paint with toys, etc). It seems like nothing's safe anymore. Are companies making items that just manage to slide by safety regulations/standards? Aren't quality assurance employees hired for a reason? And how does this keep happening? It seems like every month there's a new item recalled for some sort of safety hazard. I'm by no means a paranoid person, but it just makes you think when you're out buying that new crib or stroller....is this product going to be next?

Nope. I never even think about it. I don't worry about stuff I can't control. And most of the things I've seen recalled are because parents are stupid and use them incorrectly or could be fixed with a warning (not sending the item back). You know like dangerous toys because one tiny piece MIGHT come off. Well, common sense says take the tiny piece off before it falls off and carry on. No need to freak out and demand a refund.
