We're on Facebook

That's right! We are officially on Facebook. It's not much right now, mainly just a feed of the posts on here. I'll try to make it more interesting sometime in the future but for now it is what it is. So look The Pistachio Project up and feel free to "like" it.

Safer Toys

Safer Toys
With Christmas being almost here, I thought I’d do a post about safe toys. Toys unfortunately can contain a whole host of chemicals and children are more susceptible to toxins. Which is why last year I began to rid our house of the yucky toys and start buying the good ones. I also let all the grandparents and family members know what we were doing. Yes, that caused a bit of craziness that Christmas especially when they don’t see chemicals like I do. However, in my opinion I felt it better to give everyone the heads up so that they could spend their money on toys that my kids would actually get to keep.

Toxins in Foam Puzzle Mats

Thinking about getting your child a foam mat for Christmas? You might want to think again. Apparently both Belgium and France have completely removed ALL of their foam puzzle mats due to the carcinogen, Formamide being in them.

Baby Items Before and After Crunchy

Baby Items Before and After Crunchy
I thought it would be interesting to compare the items I used with a baby before I was crunchy and the ones I use now that I'm crunchy.

Got Milk?

Got Milk? How to increase milk supply
I am not the type of person that breastfeeding comes easily to. In fact, with my first two children I did not get to solely breastfeed like I planned to. My first was failure to thrive so we supplemented and then I got pregnant right away and there went what little supply I had. My second child I did a bit better but he was still about 40% formula fed. Breastfeeding is something that I’ve always planned on doing. I know that “Breast is best” as they say and I wanted to give my kids that. Not to mention how much I had to spend in formula! My goodness, it’s expensive.
