I’m not the Most Neurotic Mom in the World, but some days I feel I’d make it to First Runner Up, ready to step in, should she be unable to fulfill her duties. I work hard to give my children a healthy, positive, eco-friendly environment, and that means worrying — a lot — about my choices.
Spit That Out!: The Overly Informed Parent’s Guide to Raising Children in the Age of Environmental Guilt
by Paige Wolf, is a helpful book for worrier mommas like me — and
you perhaps? — and all of our sisters in worry. Wolf has compiled advise from
countless other moms who have thought about each topic and figured out
what worked for them, and what to let go; this almost-exhaustive tome
covers the latest on infant care, toy reviews, food safety and more.
Spit That Out reads fast, fun and focused. As if you had a
nonjudgmental new mom group right there between the covers as your
touchstone. You can easily see what one dozen or so other informed moms
decided about disposable diapers versus cloth, for example, and then
make your own decision. And that’s the whole idea — giving each mom the
support and information to make the decision that’s best for her
family. How refreshing is that? - Barbara
