Formaldehyde Treated Flooring

Hi Mamas, My husband and I just purchased bamboo flooring for our home and it is treated with formaldehyde. Do any of you know if it is safe to be around while pregnant?

Plumber for Clogged Disposal

Unfortunately, we have a disposal that is able to dispose of just about NOTHING. Just had a baby and Mom is in town helping. My girls got a hold of a new box of Golden Grahams and emptied them all over the playroom. She simply swept them up and put the entire box down the disposal?! Needless to say, it is backed up and I can't live a day without a kitchen sink!! I need a plumber that is great, but won't charge me an arm and a leg, either. Preferably someone who can get to me PRONTO! Thanks so much ahead of time!!
