When we became moms, we felt like our lives got better and fell apart at the same time. We were overwhelmed in all senses of the word. We looked around for support, answers, advice, a way to get a newborn to sleep that didn’t involve pacing in front of the house at 4 am. We eventually found our sea legs, wobbly, but surprisingly reliable. As we listened to other parents share their stories, we discovered that we love to listen. We realized that every child and family is unique. We also noticed a link between children’s sensitivity to the environment and cleaner living. We collected information until we were bursting to share it. We wanted to create a resource with honesty and a sense of humor for parents of young children. And so, My Little Buddha was born. My Little Buddha is a resource for parents from pregnancy through preschool. We offer down to earth information about parenting approaches and green living—articles, book reviews, favorite products and websites, recipes, and environmental news. The Weekly Gem is an email tip on the how-tos, whys and what-ifs from My Little Buddha. We also list current topics on My Little Buddha. You can always find past tips and articles in the Library. Welcome! We hope My Little Buddha supports you on your journey as parents, offering some laughter, perspective and a little more sleep along the way.
