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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

By A. R. King on June 27, 2010
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!

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.

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.

I absolutely loved this book. The author writes in a very reader friendly way and gives TONS of tips on going green (to all different extents). I disagree with the previous commenter who said that the author seemed to just be trying to scare people into changes their ways instead of inspiring them, I think it was very much the opposite. I can agree with her on what she said about product recomendations, much of it did feel like she had a stake in the product. Other than those two complaints (which are both small ones) though, I wouldn't have anything negative to say about this book and would DEFINITELY suggest buying it, used of course! :)

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.

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.
