With more and more focus on the environment and references to peoples carbon footprints and talk of reducing waste and living sustainably it was only a matter of time before this extended into the area of raising babies. Raising Baby Green: The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care is a well written, easy to use guide that has been put together by Dr Alan Greene, a qualified paediatrician.
Any book that is advising parents or carers about topics related to life style, children and the environment needs to be easy to use and easy to find the information or the book won’t be used. Many of these types of books sometimes get bogged down in information when a simple answer to a question is all that is required. Raising Baby Green is quite the opposite this clear easy to understand answers to questions as well as great illustrations.
Raising Baby Green is one book that uses great examples which both explain and advise parents on topics related to things such as administering medicine to children through to deciding what type of paint to use in the nursery. Practice examples throughout the book make this a resource that can be used time and time again to answer questions as they arise.
Another great feature of this book is that is starts with the pregnancy so that the parents or carer can start turning to greener options even before the baby has been born. Many books focus on the time after the baby is born however Raising Baby Green: The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care focuses on all the stages of having children starting from the pregnancy.
This book is a great resource for any parents or carers that are expecting or have small children and are looking to lessen their impact on the environment. There are only a few books that cover this idea of caring for the environment while you care for your children and this one is by far the best choice for information in this area.
Raising Baby Green: The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care is available on line as well as through many of the major book stores. Many of the reviews for this book suggest that it is a great present for expecting parents and carers.
