What inspired you to start blogging?

When I first became a mother, I was completely overwhelmed...I couldn't believe how many things I needed for one tiny baby. Not only was there a ridiculous amount of gear, gadgets, and toys I had to buy, but hundreds of choices for each. I had no clue where to begin.

So in my free moments between feedings and diaper changes, I started researching. I didn't buy anything without reading endless user reviews and verifying it was non-toxic. Seeing my obsession, my friends who were moms and moms-to-be started calling me for advice. Everyone started telling me I should have a website, so I finally did.

What are three distinctive features of your blog?

I love the ImagiPLAY Fruit Cutting set. Great for a boy or girl. I've seen many other pretend fruit sets and this is by far the cutest. Comes in a wooden crate with a knife and cutting board as well as realistic looking fruit. My son spent over and hour cutting the fruit and putting it back together. It's made from earth friendly rubberwood and lead free paint. http://www.happyhealthymom.com/toys_list.php?f_age=0&f_brand=&f_price=-1&f_email=&page=11&f_records=10&f_reset=0
