Because Green Suits Any Baby: Design a Healthy Nursery with New iPhone App

The good news:  you have a baby on the way!  The not-so-good news:  you still have five trillion-and-two things left on your “Baby Prep To-Do List.”

Fret not.  We understand you can use all the help you can get to prepare for the arrival of your little bundle of joy, which is why we’re introducing you to a simple tool to help design a healthy nursery for your baby:  an app called The Peaceful Nursery (only two bucks, whereas your sanity…?  priceless!).

Created by Laura Forbes Carlin and Alison Forbes (authors of the book with the same name, as well as, the Web site, Inspired Everyday Living), The Peaceful Nursery steers expectant parents in the right direction when it comes to decorating and preparing for the early months with baby.  And, trust us, better to prepare for those months now than when you’re running on two hours of sleep and three cups of coffee.

Packed with great tips including how to set up the nursery to help baby sleep (hallelujah) and how to keep your home healthy (short answer:  cleaning products, electronics, ventilation) for baby, it provides a ton of useful information at your fingertips.  But most of all, we love the convenience of the handy checklists that help you keep track of all the nursery items you need to purchase.  Not only can you can check off items as you buy them, but you can also tap on products for green shopping guidelines.

Which means only five-trillion more things to do.  Woo-hoo!  (Hey, it’s all about baby steps.)

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
