Parenthood: Raising A Healthy, Happy & Eco-Friendly Baby

with Natalie Petty

Babies are adorable, there is no denying that, but newborns don’t do a whole lot. It’s fun to watch them sleep and wiggle but that’s all there really is to it. Now that my son Jackson is 3 months old, he in finally starting to act like a little person. When you smile at him, he flares his nostrils and smiles back, and when you sing to him he coos and and wiggles excitedly. About a week ago he had his first laugh and I cried because it was the most amazingly perfect sound, more of a high pitched giggle. It was unlike anything else I had ever experienced. Now he will smile when his daddy makes funny faces and he’ll giggle and coo for no reason at all, a sound that can brighten even our worst days.

Now that it’s getting chilly, I expected Jackson to have more trouble sleeping, but thanks to Aden and Anais organic swaddles, he sleeps warmly and soundly through the night. If your little one is having trouble sleeping, I highly recommend checking out Verde Kids and their line of Aden and Anais products, because they are organic and very soft. I also can’t wait until Verde kids starts carrying their fleece mittens and hats this winter, because I want nothing more than to accessorize my little boy in cute warm outfits. Check back with them, it should be any time now.

And don’t forget to stop by Kangaroo Kids for any and all of your breastfeeding needs. They also have some great ideas for baby gifts for the holidays.

Hey, did you see that great Savvy Baby Crib Mattress & baby bed at the Natural Living Expo in October? Offered by St. Louis Beds, it is both more comfortable and healthier for your baby. You can check it out at www.STLBeds.com or call 636-296-8540. Nothing is better than having baby get a good night’s sleep! I think all of us new parents can agree on that.

Oh, there goes Jackson smiling again. I have to grab the camera. Until next month!
