The price points might be lower but Joy Hatch, co-author of The Eco-Nomical Baby Guide: Down-to-Earth Ways for Parents to Save Money and the Planet, advises budgeting for better products. Choosing quality, solid wood or formaldehyde-free furniture means that your baby will be safer and the furniture will hold up to the demands of generations of children, she says. There are a lot of BPA-free plastic bottles on the market now, and most of them are clearly labeled, notes Rebecca Kelley, co-author of The Eco-Nomical Baby Guide: Down-to-Earth Ways for Parents to Save Money and the Planet.

Is it really possible to raise an eco-baby without breaking the bank? While the average parents spend almost $7,000 gearing up for a new addition, pregnant pals Joy Hatch and Rebecca Kelley each shelled out less than a thousand―and they did it by going green. In The Eco-nomical Baby Guide, the authors prove that bringing up baby can be easy on the pocketbook and the planet. Focusing on the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra and writing in a humorous but straightforward style, these resourceful mothers dish about everything from eco-friendly diapers to daycare, making green living with baby accessible to everyone―even those on the slenderest of budgets. Your baby’s happiness and safety top Hatch and Kelley’s agenda as they offer tips on shopping for new and used green goods, blending homemade organic baby food, and limiting the piles of baby gear that threaten to overtake the living room.

I recently purchased this book as I get ready for baby #2. There were things I would have like to have done differently with my daughter when she was a baby so I thought that this might help with the next one. A lot of the information was common sense I thought (buying used furniture saves money, making your own food is better, etc.) but would be good information for those first time parents. The only section I really liked was the one on clother diapering. I am planning to cloth diaper #2 and found some good information on it. None of this information was something I couldn't easily find online. In the end, like I said before, this was a good book for the first time parent that is looking to save some money and do something good for the planet.

We bought this book while in my first trimester before we told anyone that I was pregnant. It is FANTASTIC for settling fears about getting EVERYTHING that the big box stores tell you will be "necessary" for your baby.

This baby is the first grandchild on both sides of our family and most of our friends are just starting to have babies so we didn't have anyone to tell us what gear we would really need and what we could skip. By reading this before we started looking for anything for our baby, we developed a mindset that said, "It's okay to buy some used items" and we found out which items we NEEDED to buy new.

Having a baby is EXPENSIVE and knowing where we could save money without skimping on safety has been key for us. We have followed almost all of the advice in the book and have been happy with our choices. I would recommend that any parent feeling overwhelmed by the amount of "STUFF" you have to get for a baby read this to feel like you can breathe a little easier. =)

Excellent book! The authors offer a unique perspective on raising a child. It may be hit or miss with you, but it's a great starting place if you've ever thought about how you can raise your baby in an environmentally-friendly way.

This book is AMAZING. It is very well written and how some awesome awesome advice. This book is perfect for those trying to be "green" but also looking to not break the bank in doing so. They give you some many options of what is the best economical and green route for many many different topics. I started following the authors blog after reading this. I guarantee you'll love it as much as I do

This is a great resource! The diaper section alone is worth buying it for because it details all the different styles of diapers, as well as how to use and wash them. Do you really want your baby's disposable diaper sitting in a landfill for 500+ years? The ECO-nomical baby guide can guide you to a cloth diaper that will work for your needs and budget! It also has tips for all other aspects of what you will need to care for a baby from what type of crib mattress to get to how to make your own baby food for pennies a day!

As a grandparent who has the privilege of being a regular one day a week babysitter, I found the Eco-nomical Baby Guide to be an entertaining and informative book. I was appreciative of the encouragement to find toys among everyday household items, buy quality used items when needed, and avoid the trap of too much stuff. There seem to be many more "green" options than when we had our own children. This book is well researched and provides a wealth of practical suggestions. It was not a heavy-handed environmental rant. The book provided a continuum of options and rationales in a very readable and often humorous way. Eco-nomical Baby Guide will give parents a strategy for becoming better consumers, better citizens, and possibly even happier and more content people. I am buying this book for baby shower gifts.

When I actually had a chance to look through this book in person I was disappointed- most of the 'eco-nomical' suggestions were things I had already figured out myself, things I'd already been doing for years. The kind of thing any sensible person could figure out to save money or be more green like borrowing or buying things second-hand, cloth diapering, not buying a lot of extra baby gear you don't really need, etc. To me it was just common sense stuff and wasn't teaching me anything new. I returned it.
LOVE it! Bought 3 more to give as gifts!
