The Green Baby Guide’s Sunday Round-Up

Starting this Sunday, the Green Baby Guide will present a round-up of the noteworthy articles we’ve found on likeminded sites.  Enjoy!

This is from a few months ago, but attention-grabbing nonetheless.  The Pregnancy and Baby Blog wonders Should You Quit Breastfeeding Because of Toxins in Breast Milk?

Over at Inhabitots, you’ll find how to make co-sleeping easier with the Humanity Family Bed.  While one of the green advantages of co-sleeping is avoiding the extra purchase of a crib, this product does have multiple uses.  I love that the baby in the photo is wearing a cloth diaper!

(I hope Treehugging Family does not mind me stealing those last two from their excellent round-up of green posts, all written by either Jennifer or Peggy.)

Gray Matters wrote about Going Green in Preschool.  She was faced with the dilemma of having to bring in a snack in “commercial, unopened containers.”  I haven’t had to deal with this yet, and I know I’d  resent the cost and waste!

Memarie Lane has step-by-step instructions for sewing your own nursing pads and a tip to “expand your bradrobe.”  I especially love her idea to turn extra flannel receiving blankets into nursing pads.

The Frugal Mom Blog reveals an energy-saving no-boil method for cooking pasta that makes perfect pasta every time.   I cannot wait to try this tip for myself!

And last but not least, Mom Go Green has found a great eco-friendly card company for baby announcements.


  1. Thanks for the linky love. I really like that co-sleeping product, that would be a huge help for me. I’ve gone through co-sleeping two babies without anything like that and didn’t sleep too well as a result. It might also serve as a barrier to keep older children from trying to climb into bed with me in the middle of the night. 😛

  2. Thanks for the link love. I love making pasta this way. I try to make pasta on the nights I have to pick my husband up from work. I boil the water, add the pasta, stir, cover and take off the heat, turn off the burner and out the door we go. By the time we get back, ee have perfect pasta waiting for us!

  3. I’ll have to look at the no-boil pasta method–thanks!
