In this episode, we’ll look at baby toys.
The best way to get started is to use them for the most part, but the more you use them, the more it becomes obvious that some may be dangerous.
And then we’ll talk about what you can do to prevent them.
If you’re a parent, the best place to start is by talking to your pediatrician.
It’s important to know that there’s no one-size-fits-all.
There are lots of factors to consider when choosing the right toy.
And if your child is allergic to one or more, you should be aware that they may be at risk for developing allergies to other types of toys.

If your child has allergies, the easiest way to tell them apart is to smell them.
If a toy smells like they’re allergic, your child may be allergic to it.
If your child’s symptoms persist after you’ve used the toy, your doctor may be able to prescribe a drug to control the symptoms.
