Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Fassa, founder of an organic baby-clothing line, has written a friendly and accessible guidebook for new parents on how to raise their children in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Her chapters on pregnancy are unique, especially those focusing on green beauty and hair products, which are often overlooked. Fassa moves on to address the diaper debate, eco-friendly cleaning, and organic clothing, and even offers a few recipes from eco-conscious chefs. Interspersed with all her tips and suggestions are first-person entries from “green gurus,” ranging from physicians and activists to all manner of business professionals manufacturing green products, as well as a celebrity mom or two. Their contributions provide a lot of welcome information, and Fassa also includes lists of Web sites for items mentioned and “Red Flags” for those that should be avoided. A thorough list of green products completes this handy, readable title that accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. --Colleen Mondor

More About the Author

In 1993 the best thing ever to happen to anyone happened to me, I became a mom. In 1994 in an effort to A) feed my child and B) make the world into a Utopian society so my kid would grow up into a better world than my generation did I started my company Green Babies. Today we are the oldest existing organic cotton baby clothing company in the US. Over the continuing course of my parenting journey I met wonderful people and learned some amazing things. My husband and I had 2 more daughters so by 1997 we were officially outnumbered. We moved to the bucolic 'burbs from Manhattan and got very very green. After many years of speaking to many expectant parents I decided it was time to put down on paper the most important green choices for your baby's (and family's) health and wellness, so with a great editor and alot of help from brilliant Green Gurus I wrote Green Babies, Sage Moms, as a guide to a better, easier and greener way. Two years later that baby grew up into Green Kids Sage Families. And I must say, these were the first books to talk about health concerns with BPA, Phthalates, Synthetic Turf, Parabens, Offgassing Mattresses and Cell Phones and Pediatric Cancer. Some of those issues are commonly in the news today, and some not so much yet, but they will be based on the evidence I've read.
Many parents are alarmed and even downright frightened by what's going on in the world, and specifically what seems to be happening to children here in the US. I can tell you there are very simple, makes-sense, not just for movie-star millionaires choices you can implement to preserve your child's happiness and health. And at the end of the day, what else is there?

Format: Paperback
For people that are already interested in living green and have done their research, this book will offer absolutely nothing new. It's apparent that the author is a former model vs. a scientific expert as the first few chapters deal with subjects like cosmetics and perfumes instead of focusing on more baby-related, source-driven topics. She does include "green guru" advice sections, but these mostly allow CEOs of environmentally-friendly companies to sell their products instead of give you unbiased, scientific advice. For someone that is new to living green, there are some good tips that have been pulled together from various sources (none of which are sited). These can be helpful. There's also quite a bit of rhetoric on all the scary things hiding in just about every product. I found this very disconcerting and worry about whether someone just starting to live green would give up completely upon reading this book. I recommend finding a different book to read when trying to raise an "organic baby".

I am in love with this book! Whether you have been going green for years, or are totally new to the concept, this book is amazing. It talks about being organic during your pregnancy but I just bought it (my daughter is 6 months old) and I am still finding it to be extremely useful! It lets you take baby steps, instead of being bombarded with information. It would make a great shower gift as well!

Format: Paperback
If you already live a fairly green, health-conscious lifestyle, there probably won't be much in this book that you haven't already thought about. There is only one thing that I can honestly say I learned from this book: information about the plastics used in crib mattresses and toys. However, a great deal of the information centered around the basics of being green: cleaning with vinegar and baking soda, avoiding artificial fragrances, dangers of pesticides, importance of organic foods, etc.

If you are someone who wants to go green for baby, this book may be a good starting place. There are also some good recommendations for websites and brands that focus on organic baby items, but the book doesn't provide an exhaustive list of companies by any means. So again, if you are already on the green track this will be only mildly helpful. Some of the suggestions are also impractical for most people. For example, the author discusses how dirty and contaminated carpets are, and what a big problem that is since babies spend the majority of their playtime on the floor. Her suggestion is to replace carpet with bamboo floors or some other hard surface. While this is great in theory, most of us don't have the budget to re-floor our homes as part of baby prep.

Overall, I'm glad that I checked this book out from the library rather than purchasing it.

The title says it all, I've learned a lot about being green that does not necessarily have to do with being pregnant. I have yet to read the green baby part, as the baby is not here yet, but I imagine it will be equally helpful and informative.

A great, very detailed description of what it takes to raise baby in a green household, written by an ex-model who shows you can be fashionable and beautiful and still do what it takes to create a safe, green home for baby and a toxin-free world for everyone.

Format: Paperback
I was already very interested in green living and as an expectant first-time mother, wanted to make sure I was a full bottle on doing right by my baby, myself and the environment. I was surprised by how many things I hadn't thought of that could potentially harm my baby, and the simple steps I could take to minimize that risk. But it wasn't all scaremongering, there are lots of practical, science-based and real-life examples and advice from a range of experts and everyday moms, as well as different levels of "greenness" you can consider implementing. After incorporating many of the recommendations into my lifestyle and preparations for baby, I feel much more confident that I am doing best by my growing family -- and what mother wouldn't want to do that? Every parent and parent-to-be should read this easy-to-read book.
