Happy, Healthy Nursery

Using an app to create a healthy, happy nursery

Having a baby, especially your first (or only, in my case) is full of wonder, magic…and uncertainty. What does this mean? What’s that thing for? How do I make sure my baby is safe and comfy? Healthy home experts Laura Forbes Carlin and Alison Forbes have created a way to take some of the stress out of getting your home ready for a new addition.

The sisters have developed an app — for iPhone, iPad and iPhone Touch — that helps new parents, and those simply wanting to improve their child’s surroundings, to create a natural, non-toxic and eco-friendly nursery. From paint, furnishings and bedding to tips on how to set up and decorate the nursery to help your baby sleep better, the Carlin gals have thought of everything. And it’s all done with a common-sense approach, keeping in mind the expectant parent — and his or her stress level! To wit: a handy checklist, complete with useful information, of items you will likely need to borrow or buy.

That’s lots of peace of mind, right at your fingertips, for just $1.99. Find out more here, or download the Peaceful Nursery app from the iTunes store.
