You’re expecting! Congratulations! Once the initial euphoria (or perhaps shock) has worn off, it’s time to start doing some research on what to expect, and how to create a home environment that will be healthy for both you and your (new) family. Here are some resources that we at Green Depot would heartily endorse:
CallingAllCoolMoms.com: Calling All Cool Moms is a blog written with humor and candor on pregnancy and raising a new baby. Learning from someone else’s experience can be heartening – lots of women have been through the experience before, and it’s always reassuring to know that you’re not alone.
Babybites: Babybites is a social and educational community for moms and moms-to-be, connecting New York City area women through social activities and meetups. Sharing knowledge on parenting can be empowering – and so can building new friendships.
Celebrate Green!: Celebrate Green! may not be website devoted specifically to raising baby, but it’s a good resource on how to throw events – like a baby shower or birthday party – in a way which is environmentally-conscious and healthy.
Green and Clean Mom: Green and Clean Mom is a professional website for mothers looking for ways to making their own lives and the lives of their families more environmentally-sustainable. It’s a bevy of ideas and resources on how to live, and raise kids, more sustainably.
