Green Parenting and a Critical Eye

When it comes to Green parenting, a San Francisco pediatrician and author on the subject - Dr. Alan Greene, coincidentally - suggests keeping a critical eye on the products you put on your child's skin day-in and day-out, like diaper rash ointment, baby soap and sunscreen.

It's amazing how much toxic gunk ends up in our lotions and sunscreens, etc. I'm slowly learning just how all these toxins are affecting my health and my children's health. Another excellent resource on the topic you might be interested in is Green Goes With Everything by Sloan Barnett. The "Body Burden" quiz on her website was a real eye opener for me.
