From choosing environmentally friendly diapers to identifying the hidden toxins in children''s food, cribs, car seats, and toys, Green Mama discusses topics that are vitally important to new parents.

What are the most pressing problems facing new parents today? As the world has become increasingly more complicated, so has parenting. We are concerned about pervasive toxins in the environment and anxious to raise our children in ways that will protect them as well as safeguard our already fragile world.

Manda Aufochs Gillespie, the Green Mama, shares what today''s science and Grandma''s traditional wisdom tell us about prenatal care for mothers-to-be, breastfeeding, detoxifying the nursery, diapering, caring for baby''s skin, feeding a family, and healthy play - redefining the basics of parenting for today''s world. With an upbeat tone, stories of parents who have been there, real-world advice for when money matters more, and practical steps geared toward immediate success, The Green Mama engages and guides even the busiest, most sleep-deprived parent.

The Green Mama helps parents become what they were always meant to be: experts on the care of their own children.
