The ergo baby carrier is my favorite item to use when caring for Max. It is easy to use and I highly recommend it be on every mama’s registry and would make a great gift at a baby shower.
Natural Baby and Childcare: Practical Medical Advice and Holistic Wisdom for Raising Healthy Children
The bible for natural baby and child care.
For parents who live natural, environmentally responsible lives, child rearing can seem impossible. From feeding to healing, clothing to washing, raising children naturally can be a daunting task—unless you know how.
BR>Natural Baby and Childcare helps parents who want to raise a “green” baby. This comprehensive book discusses how to complement conventional medicine with alternative treatments such as homeopathy, essential oils, and herbal medicine; how to bathe your child without using damaging chemicals; and how to feed your baby healthy, organic food. As a physician and a mom, Dr. Lauren Feder skillfully bridges the divide between medicine and motherhood, empowering parents to personalize traditional child-rearing practices to their own child.
Natural Baby and Childcare answers common questions such as:
• Are there any side effects of homeopathic medicine?
• What alternatives are there to wasteful baby products, such as plastic diapers?
• Is breastfeeding good for my baby?
• Can chamomile really cure colic?
• What side effects can vaccinations have?
Dr. Feder encourages parents to examine the conventional products that are offered and be choosy about which to include in their own children’s lives. With information for all stages and ages, Natural Baby and Childcare is a comprehensive, intelligent, and reassuring guide to raising healthy and happy children. 50 photos.
