The first comprehensive guide to help environmentally conscious parents make healthy product and lifestyle choices
Parents have become more and more conscious of how important it is to preserve the planet for their children-and out of this consciousness, the green baby movement was born. This is the first definitive, up-to-date guide for parents on how to raise happy babies "green," that is, in a manner that is healthy for them and also for the earth. Dr. Alan Greene, a leading voice of the green baby movement, advises on healthy choices during pregnancy and childbirth, feeding babies only the best food available, and using medicines safely. Consumer product expert Jeanette Pavini helps parents make smart choices on linens and diapers, bedding, furniture, plants, cribs, toys, carriers, household cleaners, lotions and creams, and dozens of other products. This handy paperback is organized so that parents can turn to the stage of development and specific concerns they're facing, right down to the rooms of the home where the baby will dwell. From the womb to the delivery room and on to the nursery, kitchen, bathroom, linen closet, indoor plants and outdoor gardens, and beyond, the expert authors provide specific product choices and recommendations in an easy-to-use package that features innovative text, boxes, tips, consumer product ratings, and handsome illustrations.
