    Decorating the nursery is a special and important part of welcoming a new addition to your family. However, so many household products are filled with toxins that it’s difficult to find a way to make your baby’s space free from dangerous fibers and chemicals. Here are a few of Modernize’s best ways to help you create a beautiful, safe place for your little one. Room decoration When painting and decorating your new nursery, choose paints free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and make sure to air the room out after painting and carpeting. If you want to stay away from wall to wall carpet, as it can hold onto dust and other allergens, choose rugs made from natural organic cottons,

ABOUT

Our goal at Babyminding is to provide you with the information you need to make healthier choices for you and your family. It’s never too late to start change for the better! 

Did you know that childhood allergies, learning disorders and autism spectrum disorders are at an all time high? Or that obesity is rising at such a rapid rate that by 2020, 3 of 4 Americans will be obese? And even more disturbing that many of these chronic issues can be remedied through simple changes in the products we bring home!

Babyminding began as an effort to raise awareness among the parenting community about the rising threats to our children’s health. We hope to inspire you to make small changes in your daily routine that will help benefit your child’s overall wellness. Make the decision to switch over to “green”, non-toxic, cleaning supplies, stop using chemical pesticides in your lawn, or simply change your child’s bath soap. Little steps can go a long way!


Dare to Compare

You may think common products like ketchup & soap are similar regardless of the brand – like comparing apples to apples right? Unfortunately this is not the case.. As a result, we offer this series that compares common family products that are used every day. Each article compares the popular brand’s ingredients to the “natural” or organic version. You be the judge (if you dare); which one is better for your family? 

TAKE ACTION

Show your support for kid related causes. In this section you’ll find links to petitions where you can show your support for causes that impact the health of families. Most of these can be submitted online and only take a few minutes. As a result, you can feel good knowing that you did your part in improving the health of future generations! 

SPECIAL NEEDS CORNER

Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, LD, PDD-NOS… These labels are everywhere, but they fail to tell the whole story when it comes to a special needs child. This section is devoted to helping parents explore the world of neuro-behavioral disorders, learn about signs for early detection and intervention methods, and discover resources that can help a child meet his or her potential!
