NEW YORK, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Green parenting -- more than just a trendy movement -- is the best way to raise healthy babies with lasting results. Parents today feel overwhelmed by all the choices and conflicting information when starting a family. HAPPYBABY: The Organic Guide to Baby's First 24 Months (HarperPaperbacks: September 2009) is the definitive guide for new and expectant parents, explaining why "going green" is universally the best way to protect baby from environmental toxins and to ensure baby's overall good health and development.
"We wrote this book because we want to share with you how to make the daunting task of protecting baby a little simpler," says Dr. Robert Sears, renowned pediatrician and author.
