Unfortunately, there’s not much easy advice here. Even if a consumer is aware of chemicals in the products you buy, they’ll be hard-pressed to avoid all fire retardants. It’s in nail polish, PVC, cars, upholstery, camping gear—it’s surrounding you a lot of the time. But if you are concerned, you could focus your efforts on limiting exposure in populations that just can't help themselves. Babies love putting their mouths on things, and won't respond well to explanations about the potential dangers of organophosphate flame retardants. So it’s probably worth the effort to look into limiting their exposure by finding car seats and crib mattresses without flame retardant chemicals. It won't be a cure-all—eliminating exposure is all but impossible. All you can really do is minimize it.
