A few months ago, Baby B and I did a review of some of the awesome Happy Baby foods. She’s pretty much moved past all baby foods at this point, although we do still purchase several Happy Baby items. Safe, organic, and affordable makes This Mama happy.
Today I want to share with you about the book called HAPPYBABY : The Organic Guide to Baby’s First 24 Months, written by Dr. Sears and HAPPYBABY.
• Easy, healthy & delicious recipes for babies and toddlers (this is part of why I reference this book almost daily!!)
• Proper nutrition for nursing moms (I am great about proper nutrition for my kids. Myself? Notsomuch.)
• Dealing with post-pregnancy stress (This may have been written for me!)
• How to teach caregivers to be health-conscious in your absence
• Managing immunization schedules and planning family activities
• How to create an environmentally sound and baby-friendly household
without hazardous chemicals and toxins.
• A checklist for baby and toddler wellness
• Choosing safe products for baby and your home
There are SO many ‘guides’ to help expectant and new parents navigate the overwhelming world of infant products. What isn’t as readily available is a comprehensive guide like this one that kind of answers many of the questions parents have that go beyond “which strollers get high ratings?” Yes, absolutely, we all want the safest, most user-friendly items we can afford. But what HappyBaby and Dr. Sears have done is kind of take your hand and walk you along the road of the natural and organic path of prepping for baby. I wish this book was around when I was pregnant with my first. We just went by the highest safety ratings and what colors I liked. This would have been a great resource!!
I shouldn’t say would have been, because I have actually found this book to be useful now, 14 months in with my third child. If you are conscious and trying to keep your home toxin and chemical free, this book is likely for you.
As a bonus, there are even some nice coupons in the book!!
We also got a copy of HAPPYBABY DVD: PRENATAL YOGA for Partners WITH JOE KULAK. Since I am not pregnant, I decided that perhaps I should share this with a friend who not only IS pregnant, but enjoys yoga. She has told me several times how much she is enjoying this DVD, and how relaxing it is. What I think she likes the most is that her 3 year old has been doing the yoga right alongside her!! You can check out a clip of the DVD right here.
What the DVD includes:
45 MINUTE COMPLETE YOGA WORKOUT
FOR THE HEALTHIEST PREGNANCY
breathing warm-up, standing series, floor series, guided relaxation
MASSAGE TECHNIQUES FOR PARTNERS
soothe mom’s changing body
POSES FOR COMMON ACHES & PAINS
lower back pain, leg cramps
GUIDED MEDITATION FOR MOM- TO- BE
You can find HappyBaby products online as well as in many natural food stores and some Target stores.
Now, one of my *fantastic* readers is going to win this prize package for their very own, which includes the book, the DVD and a Prenatal Nutrition Guide!! (What a great gift for a mom to be- or for yourself, if you are expecting!!)
