Concern for the environment and the long-term health of the planet is obviously a good thing since, as of today, we have no alternative to living on Earth. But, there is ever more research that shows the impact of home environment on your baby is even more important, at least during the early stages of development.
After all, newborns tend to spend little time outside, where air pollution and other factors may cause their developing bodies harm. On the other hand, the air in your home, the chemicals you use for cleaning, the carpeting upon which your baby learns to crawl, the soap you use to bathe your baby, even the clothes you choose for her to wear, may contain toxins that are harmful, in both the short- and long-term.
In other research, even parental stress can have a profound negative effect on children – from the very young to teens.
In an article at Pregnancy.org, author Teresa J. Mitchell presents a somewhat stunning and surprising list of some of the simplest, most useful items of convenience in the homes of most people that may be toxic to babies.
Is it time to detox your home for your baby?
A quick tour of virtually any modern home will uncover a number of potentially toxic areas and items that you will want to remove from the environment that directly affects your baby.
Taking the time to clean up and detox your home will make a far safer environment for your baby to grow up strong and healthy – and will be healthier for you, as well.

Fun is defined as something that provides mirth or amusement. Ubiquitous idioms include the word fun. We had a barrel of fun at the party. He is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. It was fun while it lasted. AWHFY?!
We may think of fun as trivial; something to do after we work. However, it’s important for our survival; when we are having fun, we are happy.
Dads are an integral part of a child’s life.
Research shows that confident dads who embrace parenting have children who show fewer behavioral problems prior to the teen years.
An article in The Guardian, highlights a study that came out in 2016. “A man’s attitudes towards fatherhood soon after his child’s birth, as well as his feelings of security as a father and partner, are more important than his involvement in childcare and household chores when it came to influencing a child’s later behavior.”
I launched Simply Chickie baby and toddler clothing to make people laugh, spread the idea of world peace, and make people aware of what they put on their body.
If you can make someone laugh, that person will pay attention to you.
My most popular romper and the one that truly launched the company, Inside me I’ve got, had a sweet beginning.
