Holy moley, I am tired. Let’s just say that Sadie has not been sleeping so well. Even by her standards. And I’ve got so many good links to share. So I think I’ll be lazy at first and just post them without comment, and hopefully find the energy to comment on them throughout the weekend.
Natural Home, Life and Baby
Easy Recipes for Natural Homemade Cleaners: This is one area where I really need to commit. I’m not sure what my hangups are about this. I think if I can just set aside a time to make some of this up so I have it on hand, I’ll be less likely to just keep grabbing for the (albeit “green”) store-bought stuff under the sink.

8 Natural Solutions for the Common Discomforts of Infancy: I like the idea of using chamomile tea. I’m sure it would be a much less expensive alternative to gripe water. I hadn’t thought to use ACV for diaper rash, but it seems handy. And I’d really like to get an amber necklace for Sadie’s teething pain. I have one myself, but I’m not sure it would be safe enough for Sadie. I’ll have to inspect it.
Green Goal Setting, Part 1: Lifestyle: Number five is where I think I need the most work.
