Nontoxic Home Cleaner Overhaul

I am on a mission: to detox my home. This isn’t really a new thing, but it’s been a long, slow process. The journey started when I first learned I was pregnant. When it comes to food, I’ve always been relatively health conscious. I shop the perimeter…

Small Space Baby Hacks

I’m really fascinated with the new minimalist/tiny house movement and I aspire to be more like these brave folks who take the plunge to live in 250 square feet (although I’m not sure I could ever actually take it that far). When we got married, my husband…

Baby Stuff Must Haves: The Essentials
