When I saw this book, I thought "Oh, boy...another book about feeding my baby. What can this add to my knowledge?" I was also kind of suspicious that it was produced by a baby food company, Happy Baby Food, which I thought could only be self serving. Then I noticed that the book was co-written by Dr. Robert Sears, who wrote or co-wrote a whole series of baby books that I really like and trust, most especially, The Baby Book, which was my bible for the first months of my son's life.
So, based on my trust of Dr. Sears, I gave this book a chance and I was pleasantly surprised! The emphasis is on the importance of whole, fresh, organic foods from the very beginning of eating (no earlier than 6 months old) with focus on the value of DHA in the diet to promote healthy brain development. It has helpful hints for feeding picky eaters and promoting a taste for a wide variety of foods. There are also great recipes for tasty sounding things that I had never thought of before. I also liked the discussion of probiotics in baby food and wished that I had known more about the benefits of those as i was starting to feed my son.
Of course, there are product tie-ins to the Happy Baby Brand Foods, but they aren't at all obnoxious, as I had feared. In fact, I became kind of curious and sought out some of their products. I liked how the frozen pureed foods for babies came in three distinct stages, just as discussed in the book, and that they were pretty much unadulterated organic fruits, vegetables, and grains. I can see how the foods might make meal time easier for a busy mom like me who wants to make all her own food, but can't always afford the time.
Anyway, I found the book to be valuable, all in all, with a lot of clear and helpful information, thanks to Dr.

I have always tried hard to feed my children healthy and organic meals and the Happy Baby line of products have made it a lot easier to fill in where I was not able to cook myself (time). What I had not done was to make my home healthier. This book gave me a lot of ideas on how to make my home healthier. From organic cleaning supplies to organic nursery supplies this book had a lot of suggestions. It also had more recipes to add to my meals. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. Makes a great baby gift too.

Kiwi Magazine Review:
Whenever I see a book about raising baby, I always look at the author's credentials. In this case, I was happy to see that Dr. Sears is a board-certified pediatrician, the father of three sons, and a co-author of several titles on the health and well-being of children. This book is comprehensive, readable and medically sound. It's also nearly 400 pages, but it is well-organized and has a comprehensive index so it is easy to find what you want, even if you're a sleep-deprived new parent (see pages 142-143!).

Our daughter is 4 months, and I know I want to wait until 6 months to start solids. As a first time mom, I wanted to prepare by getting a good organic baby book to help me decide what foods to do first, how much, etc. This book was exactly what I was looking for. I have the other books in the Sears family library, and this makes a perfect addition! Will be referring to it often!

This book has great information on all things GREEN and what's good for your baby, you, and the environment. Whether you are looking to make a few minor eco-friendly improvements to your daily routine or major ones, this book informs you on topics and suggests tips on how to be greener. It was a very enjoyable read for me. Very informative. I am already very green in my approach to living, but this book has given me ideas for other habits to take on in my daily life.

I was a fan of Dr.Sears and Happy Baby products before purchasing the book, but I did not know how often I would actually use it. I find myself using it on a weekly, if not daily, basis, and even referring to it in many conversations with other mothers. My pediatrician now keeps a copy in her office! It is a comprehensive guide that is not only maneuverable, but addresses topics that I had not even thought about as a new mother. I love to see the relationship between responsible companies and respected experts when it is about education, not commercialism. This book is not only for the veterned Greenies, but the also the moms who are just beginning to approach the idea of what Green means. It is not short on new ideas and does not intimidate those new to mommyhood.

When my son was born, THE BABY BOOK by Dr Sears, was a life-saver! It was like having a pediatrician with you at all hours of the day or night when you had a question. I have since had 2 more children and have been trying to 'green' up my life as I believe it is so important for their (and mine and the earths) health. When I heard he wrote HappyBaby- Organic Guide to Baby's First 24 Months, I ordered it. I was not disappointed. I have found this book to be a great resource on how to 'green' up your life through simple, realistic steps. I highly recommend this book!
