The “founding fathers” of babyganics, the much-loved brand of baby-safe household and body care products, share some surprising news: “Green” isn’t necessarily baby-safe. But here’s the good news: What’s safe and good for a baby is always good for the planet. It’s a simple change in perspective, and everybody wins! Now these authors have written a vital guide to creating a baby-safe home, diet, and environment that’s healthy and happy for your new family.
When a new baby comes home, you suddenly start paying close attention to everything he touches and everything that touches him. From cleaning your floors and countertops to giving a bath or applying sunscreen to grooming your pets—now that a baby’s involved, everything raises the same simple question: How safe is it for my family?
Kevin Schwartz and Keith Garber know babies. And they know safety—especially when it comes to protecting, moisturizing, nourishing, and cleaning babies. In BabySafe in Seven Steps, they’ve applied their family-tested and expert research to these seven critical categories:
• MOMMY DETOX: How to reduce exposure to additives, preservatives, and chemicals in food and beauty products while pregnant—plus essential tips for safeguarding the nursery
• “CRIB” IMPROVEMENT: Here’s help in identifying toxins under the sink, in the garage, or on the patio—and how to mix your own DIY baby-safe cleaners
• PAMPERED BABIES: Advice on selecting the best diapers, soaps, shampoos, and laundry detergent for your little one
• PLAYING SAFE: How to avoid PVCs in toys, understand “choking hazard” warnings, and ensure that rattles, teething rings, and other gear are safe
• FAMILY FOOD FUN: Helpful hints for choosing, cooking, and storing the most nutritious snacks, meals, and treats
• FUR BABIES MATTER, TOO: Learn the baby-safe ways to groom, bathe, and play with your pets
• WORLD-PROOFING: How to fertilize your lawn without pesticides, keep bugs away naturally, protect baby skin from the sun, and prepare for dirty parks, playrooms, and changing stations.
These seven steps make it easy and affordable to create an environment that will allow your baby to develop and explore freely and safely—so that you can relax and enjoy every special moment!
This informative and chatty guide is aimed at parents seeking to purge their home of toxic substances that can hurt their family. As with similar titles, the book highlights the basics of baby care (pregnancy, bathing, play, food, and sleep) through the lens of a baby s environment (womb, bathroom, home, kitchen, and crib). Writing with Rose, Schwartz and Garber draw on their expertise as fathers and as the owners of a company that produces and markets atural, nontoxic, and effective household and personal care products for babies. As such, it s hard to get past the commercial for BabyGanics products: What we discovered when developing our BabyGanics foaming dish and bottle soap is that you can have it both ways: a product that s safe free of alcohol, solvents, sulfates, phthalates and fragrance and effective at the same time. The authors write in a dad-next-door tone, as if to downplay their use of scientific terms such as bisphenol A and perfluorooctanoic acid. The authors source the same experts that advise their business, but they throw in the occasional caveat emptor ( we are not nutritionists ) before giving their advice anyway. Readers would do well to enjoy the discussion, but take it with a grain of salt.
