If we can't use nail polish with formaldehyde when pregnant then why is it ok for them to inject our newborn babies with it?

Did you know some baby clothes are treated with formaldehyde as well?!

Oh my gosh! No I did not know that! What is the reasoning behind that?

I can't find the blog I originally read, it listed each company. Carter's I remember was "safe" even though it still recommends wash before wear, Gymboree had it though, I always thought their material was weird and if my daughter wears it new she gets a rash, even after being washed she has to wear it over a Carter's onsie... we love Carter's in our house...
