My Toxic Baby
Imagine a world in which everything in a child’s environment, from the product rubbed into her gentle skin, to the toys she puts in her mouth, are a ticking time bomb of dangerous toxins. This is the world that Canadian filmmaker and first-time mother Min Sook Lee explores in My Toxic Baby as she documents her struggle to provide her daughter a healthy and safe environment. The film gets to the Achilles heel of parenting: the fear that we cannot protect our child from all the dangers in life. Without dipping into paranoia, Lee uncovers potential threats in her child’s environment and interviews a number of other parents in search of practical and affordable parenting solutions in a toxic world.
