The new book HappyBaby: The Organic Guide to Baby’s First 24 months is filled with eco-friendly parenting tips, green cleaning tips, lots and lots of homemade organic baby food how tos and recipes, and countless other tips and tricks for providing your baby with the safest, greenest, and healthiest first 2 years of life!

I needed a breast-feeding “refresher” and the book contains a thorough section on breastfeeding from start to finish. And for those who are unable to breast feed for whatever reason, the book offers advice and encouragement for selecting the best and healthiest formula for your baby. The bulk of the remainder of the book offers feeding advice for starting solid foods and building a healthy foundation for the rest of baby’s life. I’m looking forward to using the recipes when I make baby food for little guy #3!

Also, the book contains coupons for Seventh Generation diapers, free offer for Happy Baby food product, as well as coupons for a variety of other green and organic baby products!  Gotta love a book that comes with coupons!

The best general tip I can think of is be VERY aware of the chemicals in your home, even before the little ones can explore under the sink. Keep cleaning chemicals to a basic brew of vinegar and baking soda (those two things will clean 98% of your home and are not dangerous). Be mindful of petroleum based products (if you’re watching your footprint).

I think breastfeeding for as long as possible is the greenest thing any mother can do.

I try to keep processed foods out of our diets as much as possible and use safe, natural cleaners.

My tip – we always take our shoes off and ask others to as well. Think about what we walk in outside – chemicals on the road, dog poop, etc. That all winds up on your floor and carpets. So taking off our shoes keeps the house cleaner and safer!

As for creating the safest environment for my little one, I just read ALL labels and try to make as much of his food myself so that I KNOW exactly what he is getting.

I do not keep chemicals in my house. I use baking soda, vinegar, and other natural products to clean with, thus not creating a hazardous environment for my son.

I would love to win – I have a 7 month old and we are figuring things out as we go.

My green tip is to make use of the consignment sales. I bought all of my daughter’s winter clothes, 2 sizes worth, for less than $40. The clothes are gently worn and a great way to reuse our precious resources.
