You have to see this picture. This little girl's mom says she got this horrible rash from wearing tagless baby clothing by a popular brand. It looks like a bad allergic reaction. How common is this? Z Recommends posted about this and 31 moms responded. The problem seems to be a chemical in the Carters tagless clothing.
I do have many Carter's tagless onesies and have never had this problem. One website says it's only in 2007 clothing. That's what I have. I wonder if it's a certain shipment or something because my son does have sensitive skin.
One mom talks about an issue that happened with her daughter on this blog. It is very graphic. I am shocked to see the extent of this reaction.
And Nature Mom also posted about this.
Here's what one mom said: "When I changed him the next morning, I attempted to remove his pajamas and pretty much freaked because as I took off his pajamas, the skin on his upper back came off with it. It was weeping a brown fluid and as I examined the garment, it was evident that the wound fluid had VERY specific demarcations - it was only on the "tagless" carters' 9-month transparent label."
I will certainly be looking into this issue. Have any of you had this problem? Has anyone seen a news report about this or is it just circling the blogs?
