When I first became pregnant, I knew right away I wanted to create a safe environment and nursery for my baby. There was so much to research and it all was very overwhelming. Cribs, mattresses, clothes, diapers, toys, strollers, car seats – the list goes on and on and on! I remember walking into Buy Buy Baby for the first time and walking right back out because it was too much to handle! But all my frustration quickly went away after I met the founder of Sprout San Francisco, a natural and organic children’s store in CA. Suzanne Price is a mother of two who has devoted her life researching toxic chemicals in children’s products and their effects on their bodies. When we met while I was on a business trip last year, we instantly hit it off. Her passion was contagious! Suzanne created Sprout to be a one-stop-shop for new parents who want to outfit their nursery with the safest and healthiest products. Sprout has done all the research for us and only stocks their store with products that get their seal of approval. I loved how I could walk in to their store and feel comfortable as a new mom who wants to do the very best for my baby, knowing that everything on the shelves is non-toxic and safe for my newborn.
Shopping at Sprout was SO FUN! I didn’t have to stress out researching every little thing myself! The staff made it so simple to outfit my entire nursery and set up a baby registry for my friends and family. I was so impressed with everything they did for me and Harley, that I asked Suzanne to share her top tips and recommendations for a safe, natural and organic nursery in this special guest post.
Also, to help all the other moms and dads out there, I partnered with Sprout to offer a 15% discount on your purchase when you use the code “FOODBABE” at checkout here.
These pictures were taken by Little Nest Portraits (highly recommend them!) during Harley’s one week old photo shoot. Still working on commissioning some low VOC art and picture frames for the walls, but Harley’s nursery is almost done!
