Kids & Family - Jenna - August 6, 2009

I know that like me, you may not have time to check all the latest toy & baby gear recalls , but when I got a notice from one of my most trusted sites I thought that maybe I should do a quick check & compile some of the most recent for you to be aware of as well!


After going to a ton of sites & getting way to much info to compile in a timely fashion I went to my old stand by Parenting.com recalls page They have a team of people that check all the latest recalls in all the categorys & keep us busy moms up to date!
