So, our firstborn was brought into this world late last month and questions started popping into our heads.  These questions, more so concerns, are ones that most parents already have an answer to, based on commercials and statement like “pediatrician recommended” or “FDA Approved.”  The aforementioned social knowledge is completely based on studies conducted by the very companies that are selling the product and approved by the very government that is (allegedly) trying to keep us sick (more on that later).

The questions still remained: with what should we bathe him, clean the space around him, wash his clothes, treat his ailments, and even feed him, so that we will not burden him with long-lasting side effects such as a food allergy, non-genetic eczema, or dandruff?  If the above statements hold any truth at all, we cannot completely trust any product.  Of course, every product, even the all natural or organic brands, fall under the same category, so we were lost–we were in Oz, but there was no yellow-brick road in sight.

Long before birth we decided on breastfeeding the little tike, but beyond that, we didn’t really know. I started to scour the interwebs for any indications, guides, or instructions–many helped, many were useless.  The biggest resources, I found, were blogs written by people just like us.  I collected information, researched chemical interactions, and, eventually, created my own little arsenal of go-to information packets.

With this new-found interest in the homemade, I set out to understand why one product was better than another and which product would most benefit our new life.  As interesting as that was, my scientific brain needed to also understand what makes a product superior through its chemical interactions within our bodies and what can be done to make it even better.

This blog is not only going to be a collection of good-for-you, easy-to-make, cheap-to-get products; it is also going to include, at the end of each relevant post, a small scientific explanation of why this good-for-you product is actually good for you.

I truly hope that this blog will benefit your families as much as it’s benefiting mine and ask that you share the knowledge and that you act upon it.

At the end of each post (this one included), I would like to invite any comments, criticisms, challenges, additions, corrections, your story, or any combination.  As Peter Drucker stated, “knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.”

Whether it be a rainy day, cloudy day, or sunny day, may it be a good day.
