I am not trying to offend anyone and the fact that the proceeds went to charity is awesome, personally I would rather buy my children something more educational or stimulating than an overpriced dipe, but I also am on a tight budget so to me I think holy cow that's a lot but to someone else it might not be a lot. Any who I'm not trying to hurt anyones feelings and if I did please accept my apology.

Re: $250.00 Chelory on Spots?!!?!!!

Right but why is it ok when it is charity but laughable when a mama just wants an item that is what gets me. We judge, intended or not.

As far as Sophie no i do not own one the German öko test deemed them unsafe to be sold as a toy. But thats a whole other debate

Re: $250.00 Chelory on Spots?!!?!!!

Makes me think I should have auctioned off my lone ragababe and chelory instead of selling them for a normal used diaper price... I probably would have felt guilty though.

Re: $250.00 Chelory on Spots?!!?!!!

OK this is a google translation as I have no clue how to translate the chemicals but here is what they ruled in Europe:

But unfortunately, parted in the laboratory considerable amounts nitrosierbarer substances from the rubber. From nitrosatable substances can form carcinogenic nitrosamines in the body. They can arise in the manufacture of rubber products, but are technically unavoidable. Another problem: the rubber contains elevated levels of cancer-suspicious connection naphthalene. The volume of the squeal is not a toy held to your ear to the standard still in order. Sophie who has already purchased, you should be "au revoir" to say.

Overall rating of "unsatisfactory"

That and over 400 negatives on amazon from parents whos kids got the legs caught in their throat was enough to put me off

Latex can contain nitrosamines which are carcinogenic.

I do own a sophie giraffe and have wondered about this myself. I don't know if sophie contains nitrosamines. Maybe someone else knows?

Oops, posted at the same time.

European tests ruled that it did.

I'm confused...do you know that there were a lot of people stalking the diaper for the person who ended up selling it or is that just an assumption? Just wondering.
