Learn the 4 BASICS of eco-parenting that will transform your life !

This is a highly practical and joyful workshop series that will open the flood gates to a deeper understanding of yourself and discovering how you want to parent.

Connect with your baby and your planet with daily mindfulness for a better future for our kids.

Presented by The Natural Baby Planner – Jannine Barron

When your baby is born, there are a few things that will happen strait away.

 

Your baby will be held.

Your baby will feed.

Your baby will Poo.

Your baby will sleep. …. usually in this order!

And that’s just the first hour……..there are months and years of this routine.

The way you approach these basics will affect your hormones BeTheChange_Advert1and your happiness!

THESE ARE THE MOMENTS AND THE ROUTINE THAT CONNECT YOU TO YOUR BABY.

… but can be the most stressful and distant without the right preparation. Now this next bit may surprise you but its true….most new parents don’t focus on these things! When I say Focus, I mean really tune in to the lessons and communication that occur in these recurring basic care routines. Many people distance themselves in these practical routines that the 4 basics require. They don’t even know they are doing it! This affects their parenting and even long term relationships with their children and other family members. We will reveal the truth about how your daily routine affects your relationships with your children. More importantly, how they affect family cohesion. I call it eco- parenting because connecting with our children is the same practice as connecting with our planet. This transformative way to parent will connect you to your environment in a way that is so natural and effortless that our long term environment will be affected. When you take this philosophical approach to your baby care routine, you ensure post-natal stress can be minimised and maybe even avoided! So lets get together and make a plan for success! It is going to really surprise you how!

I call them the 4 BASICS

SLEEP

CHANGE

EAT

PLAY

I see so many people exploring prams, cots, toys, skincare,outfits, car seats and childcare when these 4 very basic things are often the left to last. We need to FLIP our priorities as new parents! HERE is WHY in a nutshell. You and Your baby will be healthier, happier and more rested if you focus on the 4 basics in the way that I can show you.It’s True!! That’s It! What is the Number One Issue for new parents? Sleep!!!!!!!!! Next? Time, Balance, Stress…… see a theme happening here? What if you could prepare to ensure these stresses were minimised? What if you focused on connecting with your baby? Understanding their cues? Creating a Haven for Hormonal and Family Balance.

You and Your baby will be healthier, happier and more rested if you learn to be present with the 4 basics. Now let’s read that again…because it’s a pretty powerful statement. You and Your baby will be healthier, happier and more rested if you learn to be present with the 4 basics!!!!!!! There are so many ways we prepare with products and ideas but the bottom line is that these fundamental 4 BASIC behaviours will happen. So lets start right here, make them the most important! And then, you can still get car seats and prams when the time is right but you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars up front and fill a room with things that may not be needed yet! or at all! Look at this definition of Nursery. I just LOVE IT!!! Can you see what I see? The most important line in this definition is …..for planting elsewhere. That is the end game that I think of when you start parenting.

Now don’t get me wrong, its lots of fun shopping for prams and car seats when the time is right. They are big expenses and they are necessary sooner than later for some families. I’m not saying don’t get them. I’m saying…don’t get them all so soon! They are NOT the most important things for your family. Let me share with you WHEN the time is right for those things and how your thinking around them is creating a focus on your parenting routine. Those items distance you from your child, not bring you closer. Lets Get Close First! Then the practicality is so much easier! I would rather tell you that 50% of new parents hate the first pram they buy and end up getting another! Id like to tell you how to avoid this and why it happens!

I want to save you money. I want you to have the best possible start for you and your baby.

Would it be worth dedicating 6 hours over one month, in 4 workshops to find out how?

I can’t wait to meet you and have these discussions. Ring me now on 1300 555 632 to book in. Just leave a message if we are not there! The answering machine is there 24/7 so don’t delay!

So I invite you to our ECO-PARENTING workshop series to discover just what you need, just what you don’t, and just how you can make this very, very special time in your life the magic bubble that it can be.

ORGANIC FUNDRAISING POWER – INTRODUCING DANA: THE NEW FACE OF NATURE’S CHILD ORGANIC COTTON BABY FACE WIPES.

Proudly Sharing with you our New Fundraising Project with our Organic Cotton Face Wipes  RRP $8.95

A few months ago, I was looking for a new face for our popular organic cotton face wipes. I knew I wanted to go beyond a stock photo. I wanted a photo with meaning. When chatting to my old school buddy Tania, my friend for almost 40 yrs, who runs a very successful kids project in Cambodia, I nervously asked how she would feel about one of her babies being the new face of Nature’s Child Organic Cotton Face Wipes.

Fundraising is a constant challenge for this project so I knew some extra funds would be welcome. I also knew that Tania would only agree if the families and kids were happy. I have never seen her agree to any fundraising that was not ethical as well as beneficial.

I wanted to help raise awareness of her amazing work while meeting our own needs for a very special baby to appear on our packaging. I love the idea that we can just buy what we need as consumers in Australia, and just by the way, someone is being fed or schooled, we are not only a profit centred business.

I was thrilled when Tania agreed. I had known these kids at the very beginning. I had visited Cambodia back in 2005, I knew many of these kids when they were starving, begging living on the streets. I have watched them grow through photos and videos over the years into healthy, housed, happy, educated, tall, proud young adults.

As a long time supporter of the Green Gecko Project for street children in Cambodia, I knew that one of these gorgeous kids would have a brother or sister that could be our perfect model. Dana, who finally made it on to our packaging, is a wonderful example of a healthy, happy baby. This was not the case for her aunty when Tania took her in to Green Gecko many years ago. Dana is a testament to how successful the Green Gecko project has been. She show us that it is not just the kids at Green Gecko that benefit from the project,  it’s the extended families as well.

In true Gecko style, our photo project involved the kids and families of Gecko. We extend a heartfelt hanks to the professional guidance of professional photographer Olivia Bradley – also friend of Tania’s for 25 years – who guided the process. The winning shot was taken by Nang, Green Gecko kid and resident photographer.  Thank you Nang and Olivia!

So here is the result… we are sure you will agree that Dana is just beautiful! Your purchase of Nature’s Child Organic Cotton Face Wipes is a great addition to any skincare or food item you are buying for your baby. Plus, you have the added knowledge of knowing that $1 is going to Green Gecko. $1 is equivalent to a day’s wage for some of the poorest people in Cambodia so imagine when we hit our target of $5000! Thank you for being a part of this project.  You can purchase Face Wipes here.
