Tips on how to be a greener parent

By being a greener parent not only is it helping the enviroment but it also benefits your childs health.
There are a few ways in which you can help without breaking the bank:
  • Re-Usable Nappies
 By using cotton nappies this helps the enviroment because they create less waste. It is said that disposable nappies create 60 times more waste than cotton ones. I have used cotton nappies on both my children and I have found them quite easy to use and wash.
  •  Recycle Clothing
By passing on clothes to either friends, family or to your local charity helps the enviroment as the organic industry can have a high impact on it. We have done this for the last five years as my sister was the first to have a girl 5 years ago and has passed them down twice to my little girl and my sisters.
  • Recycle Cardboard and Paper
We all know that children like to cut, stick and colour to create there own masterpieces. By recycling card, like cereal boxes, and newspapers it not only helps the enviroment but it is a great opportunity to interact with your children.
  • Wooden Toys
Most young children are more interested in the box than the singing all dancing, battery operated toy. Instead you could buy them wooden or natural toys which encourage them to play with their natural enviroment and they are usually less expensive. My sister's daughter was given a wooden train for her 2nd birthday which she played with all the time and now it has been passed to my son.
  • Eco-friendly Food
By preparing your own food for your baby or child provides less waste and is healthier. I found this was a better and cheaper way for me as I could cook in bulk and then freeze down in ice cube trays. When they get older they can also help cook which will teach them about natural produce.
  • Natural Enviroment
Take your children on nature walks, to National Trust places (I have used my ticket loads as we are lucky to have three gardens near us) or just let them help and play in the garden. This is not only good exercise but will encourage children to learn about their enviroment including growing your own fruit and vegetables.

These are just a few ways in which, as a parent, you can help the enviroment without it costing you a fortune.

The Baby Show - 18th - 20th February 2011

The Baby Show is coming to the ExCel, London on the 18th - 20th February 2011.

We visited the show last year and were amazed by the amount of stalls dedicated in providing the best products for your new baby. There are 1000's of  products to choose from prams to nappies so you can find the best one for you.
If you need any advice regarding pregnancy or on your new born baby there are midwives and health experts there to help you.
Also you will find that most top brands will be giving hugh savings if you purchase on the day.

If you have a baby there are changing and feeding areas and for small children there are play areas although we found that our little ones got quite bored after a few hours.

Although it can get extremely busy we found that, even with a buggy, we could move around quite freely.

This is well worth a visit.

Why buy organic baby clothing?

When setting up Molliemoo we decided that we would specialise in providing organic and eco-friendly baby gifts. Our baby clothing in the gift boxes (and they are sold seperately) are made from 100% organic cotton.

I have listed below three reasons why we chose this material?.

1. It is Safer for your baby
  • Organic Cotton is free from flame retardants, heavy metals and petrochemicals.
  • Pesticides are not used in growing organic cotton and there are no toxic fabric finishes
  • The dyes used are free from bleach, formaldehyde and even carcinogens

2. The clothing is more breathable
  • Experts have said that clothing made from natural materials allows the air to flow more freely through the clothing
3. Health Benefits
  • There are no harmful chemicals left on the clothing so this reduces the risk of babies developing skin problems
  • It would also be less likely for your baby to have problems with allegies
There is no denying that organic clothing is more expensive, however the benefits should outway the cost. Consider buying organic bodysuits and sleepsuits for your newborn as these items are worn the most often and are the closest to your babys skin.
