I bought this book when I was pregnant in 2006, I loved it so much I bought 3 copies for a few friends. And I started a " Green Moms Group " 18 months ago.. This and other " eye opening books " changed my life style!!
This book, written by a pediatrician, teaches how to be a great parent and also make the right choices about buying baby products that protect the environment. That way, you can be the best parent and also a good person for taking care of the planet! Loads of good, practical advice and also how to find things like baby clothes made of organic cotton (Wal Mart!), healthy foods and safe toys. I know someone who made a beautiful baby shower gift basket with this book and some organic baby bath products.
This book is absolutely AWESOME. If you are the kind of parent that wants to attempt to keep your child safe from as many environmental pollutants while doing your share for mother earth, then this book is for you! I use this book as a reference all the time! For instance, it gives parents advice on foods that are most likely to contain the most contaminants or additives that can harm your child. The benefits of knowledge from this book are too long to add in this review. I love this book and will probably have to order another b/c it will probably take a beating from laying around the house constantly. Thats the thing, I never put it away! It is also broken down in a 'dummy' form so that it is easy to understand 'professional' jargon. If you love your child AND your planet, you will LOVE this book.
