    First of all I think as a mom to be it is completely normal to be worried about these things and it shows we only want the best for our little ones. But we are also only human, so don’t beat yourself up too much because of it! Don’t forget, even if we would do everything perfectly, unfortunately sometimes stuff can still occur.

    I hope I can ease your worries a bit though, I read in some articles that there is no conclusive evidence to prove phthalates is damaging, but also no evidence for it being save during pregnancy either. Some of the tested rats were only affected if the exposure happened between 8-12 weeks gastation, so it should be fine for you in any way.
