Don’t you love saving?  Money, coupons, trees….  Seventh Generation has a counter on their site indicating how many trees/barrels of petroleum they have saved by switching to plant-based ingredients in their baby products.  Baby Personal Care and Baby Home Cleaning are the first USDA Certified Biobased baby lines on the market today (meaning they are derived more from plant-based ingredients, than petroleum-based).  We’ve tested the baby hair and body wash, bubble bath, wipes and diaper cream and are thrilled with the result.  (And let’s just say that the products can often be found in bathrooms other than the one the kids use…)  Johnson & Johnson announcing it will begin to reformulate its products to get rid of all toxic ingredients in their baby care products by 2015.  Now that’s a reason to hug a tree.

Bedwetting is also known as nocturnal enuresis. This is a common problem in children and it is really a source of great concern for many parents especially when they expect their children to learn potty training and stay dry at night at a very tender age. This condition is quite complex with medical, physiologic, and behavioural causes; and to some extent environmental issues may be all responsible for it. Genetics is also implicated in the cause of this condition in children. Studies have indicated that there is a high chance of a child to bed wet if any of the parents did the same. There is actually no specific reason of cause for this condition in children.

>Bye bye perfume, no more chlorine.  Flush them down and your life will be green..  Ok, so maybe not a great ditty, but we haven’t stopped singing since we tried these fabulous diapers.  A mix between cloth and disposables, the inner liner pops out and you can flush it – or get this… stick it in your compost bin to decompose within 3 months and give soil directly back to the earth.  (Add this to our fun list of things to do with kids in the garden).  For those of you who are mortally offended, not only by the landfill factor of using disposable diapers, but by constantly seeing Elmos and princesses on your dear one’s tush, these are the solution.
