Welcome to Baby Steps to Clean Living™! Thank you for scoping me out. Maybe it’s your first baby step towards a cleaner lifestyle or maybe you’ve been on your journey for quite some time. Either way, I’m glad your’re here!
In 2011 I gave birth to my first child, a boy. I went about life as I was used to and then around 3 months something clicked. The more I looked into what I was eating, what I was using to clean my house and what I was putting on my body, the more I became concerned. Pesticides in my food, toxic carcinogens in my cleaning products and hormone disruptors in my deodorant, body wash and lotion. What that means is that if it was in MY products, then it was in HIS products too. Wipes, diaper cream, laundry detergent, baby lotion, baby bath and the list goes on and on. HOLY COW! How can this be? Why is this? How can I change? Those are the questions I tried to answer. I’m still in the process of getting all of the answers (I never will), but I have learned so much in the past few years.
It’s not easy, but it is totally worth the challenge.
