Toddler Room Renovation

February 10, 2019

It was time to move our almost two-year-old into his own room.  I had been dreading trying to figure out what to do with this room, but our mini renovation worked out so great!  We tried to add as many wooden and non-toxic items as possible.  We focused on brightening up the room and cleansing the air. It was affordable, easy enough for two parents with limited home-reno skills and only took a few days to do.

Why I Purged My Baby’s Toy Basket | 4 Tips On How To Avoid Toxins

September 23, 2018

As a new mom, I was shocked to discover the overwhelming amount of toxins found in almost all the standard baby products especially from Top Name Brands.  From my background in biology and nutrition I am very aware that chemicals can easily slip into our system through skin contact, inhaling them, and consuming through the mouth.  Babies put everything in their mouth! 

I spent most of my pregnancy researching what to avoid and searching for the safest and most natural ‘must-haves’ for our little baby Oby.  This is not an exhaustive research paper, but a short blog from my own discovery and experience as a mom.  I’ll list the top things to avoid and make a few suggestions on better alternatives.

How to Cleanse Berries from Pesticides & Sprays

How to Cleanse Berries from Pesticides & Sprays

July 16, 2018

My toddler loves, loves, loves blueberries!  He would eat them all day if he could.  As a mama I am very concerned that more than 10 pesticides used on conventional blueberry crops have been linked to numerous neurological disorders.  Short term effects can be headaches, dizziness, nausea, insomnia, poor balance and depression. The one that I am most concerned about is called chlorpyrifos.  Scientists have found chlorpyrifos to negatively impact a child’s brain development and behavior. . . and yet the food industry allows it to continue to be sprayed on "healthy" blueberries.

Organically grown berries provide the benefits of this super-food without the risks.  However, it is not always possible for all families to access organic berries.  Should you not eat them??  Although I highly recommend eating organic whenever it is possible, there is a way to remove the majority of pesticides from your berries and this method happens to be simple, quick and affordable.
