Lobby to ban scratchy care labels on baby clothes?

Hi - not posted before so apols if this is not the right forum! But wondered if anyone else felt strongly about changing the hideously uncomfortable care labels that we all have to suffer, on baby clothes? My v good natured DS (4mths) was v cranky yesterday and at bathtime I discovered a really nasty sore patch on his side caused by his care label. I'd actually already cut most of it out of his (M&S) t-shirt but the remaining stub sewn into the seam was particularly thick and sharp. I'm sure EU regs dictate that these labels are included, but I'd love to see the sharp-edged nylon ones replaced with either soft muslin labels or printed instructions on the inside back of the item, at least for infants who can't tell us what's wrong!! Anyone agree?

I have to admit, I don't think this is worth lobbying about. Just choose the clothes you buy carefully. My ds 's skin doesn't tolerate wool, so I don't buy woollen clothes for him.

It would have been fine if you hadn't cut it probably!
I think trying to ban these would be a bit precious OTT

Just choose clothes carefully. We cannot ban everything!

Or buy designer clothes which generally have the label on the outsidesmile

Is this honestly the biggest concern in your life? Perhaps you should go and talk to your doctor/hv in case you are suffering some sort of PND.

Dear lord above, is this honestly something that you're even thinking twice about?
