As a parent, it’s your responsibility to make informed decisions about the care of your child. From selecting the right products to every day tasks, raising a child takes mind, body and soul and most importantly, the support and love from friends and family.

However, with so many choices also comes a sense of overwhelming overload. There are a lot of resources available. The best resource is word of mouth.

First hand experience, research and common sense can go a long way in raising a happy and healthy child.
