BedHead has issued a recall for certain children's two-piece pajama sets. The pajamas fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to children.

This recall involves BedHead children's 95% cotton and 5% Lycra two-piece pajama sets sold in toddler size 12 months through youth 14. The recalled two-piece pajama sets were sold in three prints, Navy Cream Stripe, Pink Holland and Pink Spot. The Navy Cream set was sold only as a long-sleeve and pant set. Pink Holland and Pink Spot were sold as a short-sleeve top with shorts set and a long-sleeve top and pant set.

The recalled pajama sets have 'Boo Boo BedHead' printed on a label located on the back neckline of the pajama top.

The pajama sets affected by this recall were sold at children's boutiques and online nationwide from January 2011 through February 2014.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled pajama sets away from children and return them to BedHead for a $25 store merchandise credit.

Hoping to have a baby? You may be less hopeful when you find out that it will cost almost a quarter of a million dollars to raise a child.According to the Department of Agriculture's (USDA) estimates, it will cost parents $233,610—nearly as much as $14,000 per year---to bring up a child from birth through the age of 17.

A baby's skin is much thinner than that of older children and adults, and it absorbs the active, chemical ingredients in sunscreen more easily. This means that an infant's exposure to the chemicals in sunscreens is much greater, increasing the risk of an allergic reaction or inflammation.

It'll only be a minute, you say. You crack the windows and lock the car leaving your sleeping infant cozy in her car seat. The problem is that it's never just a minute. It's always longer than that and it only takes 10 minutes for your car to heat up to dangerous temperatures—potentially killing or permanently injuring your child.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning the public to keep these products—which contain the active ingredients tetrahydrozoline, oxymetazoline, or naphazoline (known as imidazoline derivatives)—out of the reach of children at all times. The products are sold under various brand names such as Visine, Dristan and Mucinex, as well as in generic and store brands.
