*CLEANING: Baking soda, vinegar and hot water for general household cleaning. They don't smell bad (baking soda even neutralizes odours completely unlike conventional cleaning products which mask it).
*EATING: Planning your menu's for the week ahead of time and then buying accordingly.
Buying organic from local markets or joining an organic co-op.
Cooking at home, from scratch.
*Using cloth diapers (or doing Elimination Communication if you're up for it).
Line drying diapers.
*No shampoo or body lotions for baby. They have gorgeous skin and hair and those products ruin it all & cost a ton.
*Natural fabrics - did you mean organic cotton or just "natural" fibres such as cotton and wool?
*Soap - I buy 100% pure olive oil soap from an ethnic store. I get a packet of 8 soaps for $3 and they are wonderful! Made by hand and just the way it should be. They are just olive oil and lye. Nothing else.
It's so hard to go natural because the healthfood stores charge a premium for "natural" products. But when you make everything yourself, its inexpensive and far more healthier than the store bought stuff. Remember whatever goes onto your skin, goes *into* your skin and body! Keep that in mind.
Congrats on your baby and goodluck!!
