“Can I wear deodorant while pregnant?”. “Is deodorant safe during pregnancy?”.“Babies don’t wear deodorant!”. “What does wearing deodorant have to do with babies?”. “Can I wear deodorant while I’m breastfeeding?”. These are a few of the questions and statements raised about the safety of wearing deodorant while being pregnant and breastfeeding. This is also an area we may not pay a lot of attention to as the toxic substances linked to breast cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are highlighted.
Last week, we talked about asking different questions. So, we ask, what about those toxic substances such as aluminum, parabens, talc and pthlates? Are they safe to use while pregnant and breastfeeding?
Here is what we know. We know that it takes 26 seconds for the body to absorb what is applied to skin. We know these chemicals have been found in breast tissue. We know that many pregnant women are worried about chemicals because they have been linked to birth defects. We know that when breastfeeding, the baby’s head and sometimes arm, are in close proximity to the arm pit and the baby is in contact with the breast directly. In reading various articles and blogs, we have found that there is concern on the part of many breastfeeding momma’s about these chemicals and exposing their babies to them. A lot of women have expressed that they don’t wear deodorant while pregnant or breastfeeding for these very reasons.
