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

I’ve managed to go my whole adult life without owning a car.  When I was pregnant, I wondered if I’d finally succumb to automobile ownership, but I’ve found I get along just fine.  In the first few weeks of parenthood, 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 ha…

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!

This post originally ran on Chatty-T : Random Musings from a Pregnant American in London. Tanya, the 28-year-old author of this article,  writes about pregnancy on her blog. Check it out for her thoughts on maternity wardrobe essentials, her secret to avoiding stretch marks, and much more. We live in the age of the consumer and I’m staggered by the amount of baby paraphernalia on the market. What do I need? What is excess? Changing tables…

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

If you’ve read The Eco-nomical Baby Guide, you know I got pretty hardcore about baby gear. That is, if it wasn’t going to last a long time or perform five functions at once, I didn’t want it. The pleasant side effects of this policy was that I didn’t have mountains of blinking plastic toys to wade through on my way to the kitchen. I saved money and the environment. Great! But . . . in retrospect I have to wonder if I might have eased my restrict…

We are outdoors people, and therefore took plenty of walks with Roscoe tucked into his sling in our early parenting days. Even so, I always watched the bikes and their toddler trailers with a certain excitement as they zoomed by.  When Roscoe was just eight months old, I couldn’t take it anymore and bought a used bike trailer. Our Instep Schwinn bike trailer was $100 on Craigslist and had only been used twice.  It isn’t a fantastically great de…
