Product Description

From the Back Cover

"Are terry nappies really that difficult to use? Where can you find ethical products? Why should you avoid plastic? Is it safe to buy second-hand? With a huge number of products to choose from and decisions to make, how do you create a healthy environment which will give your baby the best start in life - and give the planet a chance?
Eco Baby is packed with information to help you give your baby the best start in life whilst minimising your impact on the planet. It includes:
Baby gear - eco-friendly advice from cots to car seats;
Nappies - the pros and cons of disposable versus washable, and their effect on our environment;
Food - breastfeeding, dairy intolerances, natural alternatives to formula milks and options for organic meals;
Clothing - how to source non-allergenic, organic clothes;
Toiletries - the ingredients in some of our most famous baby toiletry brands, the potential health implications, and natural alternatives;
Toys - how to create an ethical toy box with sustainably managed materials and fair-trade products.
Eco Baby is an essential guide for all parents concerned about the health of their baby, and for the world their children and grandchildren will inherit.

This is truly painful stuff. Littered with weasel words, myths, half truths, nods and winks, this is a horrendous pile of rubbish.

Call a chemical by its chemical name and it must be bad. But a common name makes it perfectly safe. Apparently you should not buy any cleaners containing alcohol, but should feel free to use borax for all your cleaning around the house. Borax must be labeled in the EU to advise users of the danger to fertility and to the unborn, a fact she omits.

I've followed her best advise, and recycled my copy.

This is a dangerous book. Avoid.

I agree with the review above. Too much of the information in the book seems to be the author's gut feeling rather than helpful facts. None of this appears to be expert opinion at all. Gave my copy away to a charity shop.
