New parents are faced with so many decisions. Breast milk or formula? Co-sleep or let your wee one cry it out? This car seat or that car seat? And on and on and on.
I'm not afraid to say it -- I can use all of the help I can get. When it comes to making choices as a consumer, I was glad to learn about MightyNest.com. This is a site founded by a Chicago-area family to help parents create healthier
home environments for their children.
MightyNest.com brings together information
environmental and safety concerns (BPA, lead, etc) with the ability to buy alternative products
all in the same place. All of the items sold on MightyNest.com are
handpicked because they are safe and stylish. These folks have done the research for you and chosen the best products on the market. Clever, right?
My favorite part of the site is the education component. MightyNest.com provides really helpful information without being preachy or judgmental (because no parent needs any more of that). I recommend that you check out the post on five small changes your family could make to live a greener life. I love this kind of common sense approach.
