Let's meet up and...have fun learning about healthy babies & healthy homes!

  • Nov 13, 2013 · 10:45 AM
  • Emanuel Synagogue Early Childhood Room

Please join me for a "Healthy Baby Home" gathering during one of our regularly scheduled MeetUps in November. I'll be leading the MeetUp using materials from Healthy Child, Healthy World and Seventh Generation, who have teamed up to put together resources for healthy living. Our MeetUp will include a bingo game to get the conversation started, a DVD (or I can use a quick clip on my phone or laptop if that works best) about ways to help make what goes in and around our little ones safer, and trial-size product samples for attendees. There will be enough materials for 15 people.

There’s no cost for hosting and no charge for people attending...No giving emails or telephone numbers or anything like that - It’s just simply an opportunity to get together, and learn about ways we can make simple choices to better the health of our families. I can make the activities as short as necessary based on what the moms and babies need : )

    I'm having trouble with these morning meetups! I just got Naima down for a nap (she's been up since 5!) and I don't want to wake her... :(

    If you were able to come to today's Meetup, thank you! You took a first step in creating a healthier world for your family and those around you. If you weren't able to make it, there are a few goodie bags left with free Seventh Generation Samples for next time. There might be leftover coupons, too!

    I also put some quick tips for toxin-free living on our webpage:
    http://www.meetup.com/Central-CT-New-Parent-Resources-Meet-Up/pages/ under "Healthy Child, Healthy World Resources".

    I hope they tips are helpful. Like Leticia pointed out, there's so many things to be concerned about out there, and these resources are not meant to be a list of 15 more things you need to do to be a great mom. You're already doing so much for your babies, loving on them, bringing them out and about to play and learn, and taking steps to learn more yourself. These will just equip you to do more and to share with someone else. Together, we can make a difference. Hugs,
    Heather (& my napping sidekick : ))

    Wow! Thanks for hosting a fabulous meetup Heather! I think everyone appreciated the info about keeping our homes healthy & the free samples and door prizes were great! PS Thanks for the baby food jars for my neighbor's art class!

    On my way with materials, bingo, freebies, and baby, but sans technological devices. I'll talk about it but it's definitely better viewed- Here's the quick clip about raising awareness and taking action for healthier homes and, as a result, healthier children.

    Aww! I wish you could be too! If 15 don't come, I'll save a goodie bag for you! : ) Hope the appointment goes well and the doctors are pleased with how your little guy is doing. He's a joy!

    Just a reminder that, if you were interested in contributing to the shoebox project last week, I'll collect toys, hygiene items, full boxes, or funds for shipping after our "Healthy Baby/Home" Meetup tomorrow. Next week is Collection Week! : )

    What a great idea - good for you Heather! Sadly I go back to work on Wednesdays starting in November so we won't be able to make it.
