We live in a toxic world, and for many people, having a child is an alarming introduction to that fact. Your ears perk up when you hear the latest on microwaving plastic, vinyl shower curtains that give off dangerous chemicals, or even mattresses full of formaldehyde. It can be overwhelming.

• Look for solid-wood cabinets with formaldehyde-free resin in the kitchen. Go for glass and stainless steel instead of plastic. Consider getting rid of your microwave.

• Try a natural latex foam mattress in the bedroom. Use organic cotton and wool pillows.
