Thanks for showing the web more about the author, and her views. Her book was an important part of our childhood.

I agree with other posters, Weleda is an amazing company. I first discovered this when I lived in Germany, and when I can find it I snatch it up in the US. I've noticed some Whole Foods have a few of their products.

Glad to hear there is a new book coming up. Once you have become familiar with natural products such as tooth paste and shampoo, it is startling to smell Crest or Head and Shoulders... ouch.

Toothpaste is such an important product to use naturally. Both adults and particularly children swallow a decent amount of paste when brushing.

Love – Green Babies Sage Moms! Great to point out options for kids and for us all to remember to consider these for ourselves as well.

I used Weleda’s diaper cream on my two little ones, and it worked wonderfully. I have looked for it to give as a baby shower gift, but have had time finding it at my local WF, they just carry the skin cream. I believe all stores should try to carry the diaper cream, it is the best in the industry.

These are great products. I think it is important to consider organic clothes at least for infants, if not tweens. There is so much less off-gassing, and die issues with good quality organic clothes.

Margie was wondering about fluoride for kids. Thanks for the question, since this is a hot topic. Some people choose fluoridated toothpastes to re-mineralize soft spots on the teeth and to help prevent cavities. Other people feel fluoride in toothpaste is unnecessary and potentially questionable. At WFM, we offer both fluoridated and non-fluoridated toothpastes to meet all our customers' needs. The American Dental Association (ADA) states "Unless advised to do so by a dentist or other health professional, parents should not use fluoride toothpaste for children less than two years of age." Please go to the ADA's page on this issue for more details, and for tips on safe levels for infants and young children: http://www.ada.org/prof/resources/positions/statements/fluoride_infants.asp

This is good to see. Allot of the natural products are getting back to the root elements people use to use as natural remedies during our grandparents generation.

Thanks for the supplemental info about fluoride, I've always heard different points of view on the subject.

Big fan of the John Masters product line, and have used it for some time now. I can tell you that you won't be disappointed if you explore a natural approach to color.

Malia - thanks for the ADA link. I would think if it is not reccomended for 2 year olds it is likely not any better for a 3 + year old. I think I'll stick to fluoride as it is supplied in the water.

I appreciate the info on fluoride, I feel that the dentists and the natural health community provide differing perspectives and it is always best to have as much info as possible then reflect.
