From the Author
I want every parent to reclaim their most important inherit quality - their intuition. Too many experts tell us we must follow routines, spend a fortune in money and gadgets. I'm no earth mother knitting my own yoghurt and I'm certainly not very green but when I had my first child 8 years ago I realised I wanted to leave behind a bit of the planet. I'll share all my recommendations for everything you'll need and want,helping you to save your health, your money and do your bit for the environment in the process. Everything from eco-nappies through to funky nursing necklaces.See all Product description

A book with all the tips you need for bringing baby into the world without commercially produced toiletries and un-necessary chemicals.
I would advise anyone who may be pregnant, or thinking of having a baby to at least give this more natural way of thinking and living a chance.
A great read and I look forward to the next one!!!!
If you're a light green mother to be and want the best for your baby, but don't know which way to turn for advice, this could be the book you've been waiting for.
When I had my daughter, there weren't many books available on this topic, but I think Janey's Imperfectly Natural baby and toddler would have been welcome reading in my home in the early days.
There is no preaching and no radical, 'way out' ideas that put you off for life. There is just 200 pages of sound advice which talks you through the many options that parents, wanting to adopt a more natural lifestyle, might consider.
Janey has four children, so can speak with authority about how individual children are! The book is a collection of tips for parents who want to live as holistically as they can while bringing up babies and young children.
Janey talks about life from the moment your baby is in your arms. I wish I'd had the advise to rest and let people pamper me in the early days. Instead I thought I could be supermum - what a mistake that was! Janey covers PND and gives lots of suggestions for things to do other than take medication. She advocates drugs as an absolute last resort and covers other ideas that can be just as effective.
Throughout Imperfectly natural baby and toddler, all the usual confusing decisions are covered such as vaccinations, washable or disposable nappies, breast feeding, dummies, weaning and health care.
Find out which vegetable leaf will help ease mastitis and what different brands of 'eco nappies' are now available.
You'll find home remedies for treating minor ailments such as colic, earache, tummy upsets and eczema.Read more ›
A brilliant book - Imperfectly Natural Woman has been a favourite since my mum gave me a copy last year and I have been looking forward to the publication of this one ever since!
The layout is really nice & the pictures throughout are beautiful.
I look forward to another book in the 'Imperfectly Natural' series.
