My daughter is now three years old, so even though I co-write The Green Baby Guide with Joy, sometimes the baby years seem like they were a part of the distant past.  In our upcoming book, we talk a lot about reducing the amount of gear you buy for your newborn–after all, so much of it gets used for  just a few weeks or months.  Then I looked around my daughter’s room for relics from the past.  Three years out, is there any baby gear…

The company that brought us sturdy, sleek strollers has just launched Beginning, a new line of personal care products for babies.  Quality is the one trait that all Maclaren’s products share and their venture into personal care products for baby is no exception.  The Protecting Nappy Balm is like nothing you’ve ever used before. Unlike thick and sticky diaper creams, this one goes on like whipped chiffon.  It has a wonderful lavender scent and s…



Green on the Go: Living Car-Free with a Baby

…enthood, I plopped my daughter into a sling and stepped out the door.  At three months, she took her very first stroller ride, and at almost two and a half years she still takes a spin in it almost every single day.  I have found the stroller indispensible for a car-free lifestyle–jaunts around town are entertaining for the baby, and the basket provides some storage space for books or groceries we pick up along the way.  We enjoy what I lik…

If you’re not willing to invest the money or gasoline to drive to the gym a few times a week, is it possible to drop those post-baby pounds?  Absolutely! (Rebecca wrote about free post-pregnancy workouts here.)  But it’s great to hear the creative ways that you’ve found to drop weight without breaking the bank or hurting the environment.  How have you cut calories and found free ways to exercise?  I’m packing on the pounds this pregnancy and alr…

Diaper launderer, baby food chef, milk producer, house cleaner, nose wiper, and bath giver.  As parents, our work is never done and it often seems as though there is no time to refresh our energy reserves.  Still, I notice that when I do take time to soak in a bubble bath or journal in silence, I am so much more effective as a mom.  How do you take care of yourself?  Do you have trouble finding a moment to relax?  You’re in luck! Bath by Bettijo…

Save Money on Your Dream Baby Gear–Shop ebay!

…approach but have now contradicted my practical mantra and decided that I really want to buy a Bugaboo Cameleon stroller/pram. Lightweight, compact, suitable from birth and with a fancy-schmancy steering system appropriate for country and city terrain, it ticked lots of my boxes. I’m active; even though I’m having a winter baby, I want to get out of the house as much as I can and walk with baby. We live in an urban environment but I l…

No Nursery for Baby

We haven’t picked out colors, or bedding, or painted a fairy mural on the wall.  In fact, our second child has no claim to any wall–or even a room for that matter. Why have we allowed this to happen?  After all, with our first we decorated with homemade curtains, a rocking chair and a new dresser.  What we quickly found, however, is that our son was rarely in his room.  He co-slept for the first five months and during the day spent most…

The Post-Baby Body Blues

For the past twelve weeks I’ve watched calories, joined Baby Boot Camp (an outdoor exercise class for a postpartum workout), and have breastfed this hungry baby of mine every two hours.  I’ve lost four measly pounds from my post-birth weight.  While part of me just wants to throw up my hands and cry into my steel cut oats, the other part of me realizes that patience is key. Some of us shed weight easily while breastfeeding but apparently twenty…

Baby Gear I Wish I’d Splurged On After All

…isposables, I should have shelled out the extra money for Seventh Generation diapers that don’t use chlorine. Stroller. We bought a Maclaren Triumph stroller, and it is hands-down the best piece of baby gear I had because we used it daily for over five years. But for a little more money, I could have bought the Maclaren Quest instead, which would have made the first ten weeks with a new baby more enjoyable. Baby monitor.Our first house was so…

…price, but we’ve been quite happy with it.  It also seats two children so we may eventually use it as a double stroller in the years to come. Unfortunately, when my safety-oriented hubby checked all regulations on our trailer, I found that baby shouldn’t be riding in it until one year of age.  Since Roscoe’s birthday is in September, we’d have another summer of envying family bike caravans before we got our chance.  Some parents work their way…
