New Healthy Baby Guide Helps Parents Find Safe Options

"When we had our children in ’89 and ’92 we searched in vain for information to guide our toy, food, utensil, and bottle choices. We WISH we had half of the information in this guide. When toxins are ubiquitous and hiding in plain sight we need research like this to make good choices with our pocketbook."
-Kyra Sedgwick & Kevin Bacon

 

"Thanks to PPC and Made Safe, we now have a guide to reduce toxic exposure for our family and to live a more plastic free life."
-Susan & Jeff Bridges
 
"As present day parents to an infant we are so grateful for The Healthy Baby Guide to help navigate the murky waters of a world that is way too reliant on plastic products."
-Jaclyn & Ben Harper
 
"Our deepest instinct, our greater responsibility, is caring for our young. And, let’s face it, we could all use a little help in avoiding the toxic pitfalls that seem to abound in modern life. The Healthy Baby Guide is an invaluable roadmap, an essential tool to inform every parent, aunt, uncle, or grandparent. Get your copy now!"
-Rachelle Carson Begley & Ed Begley, Jr.

Maybe you’ve just learned you’re pregnant, or maybe you have a new baby or growing children. Perhaps you and your partner are just thinking about having a family. Whatever the reason, you may be hearing troubling things about toxic chemicals around you—especially chemicals in plastic and other harmful ingredients in the things you use daily—and how these chemicals affect not just the environment, but also the human body and particularly growing babies, infants, and children.

But it can be overwhelming to try to figure it all out by yourself. Can’t someone just tell you what’s safe and what’s not?!

Why yes, in fact, we can.

Plastic Pollution Coalition and Made Safe have teamed up to create the first-ever Healthy Baby Guide, with everything you need to keep you and your children safe from harmful chemicals:

  • Where toxic chemicals lurk in plastics and other everyday products

  • How they impact babies, pregnant women, and women trying to become pregnant

  • Tips for avoiding plastic and other toxics in everyday life

  • Product recommendations

This guide is broken out by rooms in your house for ultimate ease:

  • Nursery
  • Bathroom

  • Kitchen

  • General Household

  • Outdoors

  • With a special category for pregnant women and moms

From teethers, toys, and bottles to bedding, baby wash, diaper cream, and more, we’ve got answers for you.

The goal of this guide is to help you make better, safer choices for a healthy and sustainable future. What you may not realize is that you have enormous economic power to shift the marketplace away from harmful materials. Companies watch what you buy closely, and by supporting companies that are making safer products, you can help make change happen, so that one day, you won’t even need a guide like this. Together, we can create a world where every product on the shelf is safe to begin with.

Check out the Healthy Baby Guide, and share with all the loved ones in your life who are parents, pregnant women, and women looking to start a family.
