HappyBaby Book Review + Giveaway at the End of the Post

HappyBaby: The Organic Guide to Baby’s First 24 Months is the latest offering from Dr. Robert W. Sears, co-written with Amy Marlow, the dietician for HappyBaby organic baby food. Dr. Sears co-wrote The Baby Book, that classic tome on Attachment Parenting you’ll either embrace or—overcome by a creeping sensation of guilt and inadequacy—throw across the room. HappyBaby is a kinder, gentler introduction to the world of the Drs. Sears. In fact, the mantra in this new book may very well be “Relax! Don’t worry too much. Just take it one small thing at a time.” This attitude makes it easy to digest the information inside without worrying about doing something wrong—either for your baby or the planet.

We’re Proud to Announce . . . Our New Book Title!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Book Title Brainstorm! We needed to take the “green” out of “The Green Baby Guide: Down-to-Earth Ways to Save Money and the Planet” due to “green fatigue.”

Penny suggested It’s Natural Baby: Earth Saving for Thrifty Parents; Earth Safe, Baby Safe; and the Sustainability Guide for Your Baby, Earth and Wallet. Charndra at Part Time Diaper Free suggested Green Baby Guide: The Eco Friendly Way to Start a New Generation. Mrs. Not the Jet Set thought of the Crunchy Mom’s Guide to Parenthood: Saving Money without Compromising as well as Sustainable Living for the First Year and Beyond. Erika of Organic Baby Resource suggested replacing “green” with “eco-friendly,” as it’s not as overused.  Cathrin suggested Frugal Babies: How to Raise Healthy Babies on a Budget and Save the Planet. All of these suggestions sound like great book titles and provided us with a lot of inspiration as we struggled to rename the book and rewrite our first chapter.
