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!

I try to clean with vinegar when I can, the less chemicals in the house the better. Also, our baby will be crawling soon, we’re going to be getting a steamer for our floors to keep them clean and chemical free!

I’ve emailed this to a few friends and my sister who has kids as well. My 2 year old daughter has been raised eating natural and organic food (with the occasional m&m – yum!) for the most part. My son who is 5 months old is just starting solids. Even being exclusively breastfed, he has always had tummy issues. I need to start looking into different info for feeding an infant. I have seen some of Dr. Sears stuff before and I have always like his views so I think this book would be very helpful.

Best tip for raising a “green” baby…sling em! I have a Maya style Wrap that I made myself and I can’t possibly say enough good things about slings!

Over the past few years I have changed alot to be friendlier to the environment as well as healthier. In our house we have started little by changing light bulbs to compact florescent (I’m not sure how to spell that) bulbs and changing the cleaners to more natural one, which are so easy to find affordably at any store now. I have always recycled and now my 2 year old daughter finds it fun to help sort and get it ready to go. We try to keep most of our food natural and organic and I cook and bake mainly from scratch. There are still changes we can make and little by little we are getting there.

Awesome! With my new twins, I’m looking for ways to save some money and give them better baby food. Daughter #1 had food allergies, so I learned a lot about the yuckies in baby food with her!
