Have you ever wished that motherhood came with a manual?
Though I have slowly grown in my mothering know-how and ability over the years, and have come to really love being a mom, it hasn’t always been an easy road.
I had no clue what I was doing when I got to the end of my first pregnancy (you know, the part where you actually get to hold a baby!) and realized that after all the months of sickness and fatigue and then the long labor and difficult birth… well, that was the easy part. THIS, this was the hard part. Not having a baby, but actually having a baby, in my arms, dependent on me, and realizing I had to figure out how on earth I was going to raise this baby well.
You might think that motherhood came easier to me because I write a blog, but you’d be wrong. The ideas and information I share have often been hard won, through much trial and error, hours upon hours of research, and the daily grind of simply doing my best to learn to be a better mom.
As I’ve ridden the learning curve of mothering, one thing I’ve become passionate about is raising my children in a healthy home. Different families have different ideas of what this looks like, but for our family in particular this means a home where:
- we eat real and traditional foods
- toxins are avoided as much as possible
- practices like breastfeeding and unmedicated birth are valued
- natural home remedies are used before over-the-counter or prescription medications whenever possible
- the earth is cherished as God’s creation and we take steps to reduce our impact on it
- we work to instill important lifelong habits in our children
A bundle of resources custom-made for the naturally minded mom
That’s why I’m particularly excited to be a part of a unique ebook bundle project put together by one of the writers here at KOTH (Kresha of Nourishing Joy). I’ve run two of my own bundle sales previously, one with a focus on healthy living in general, and the other with a focus on homemaking and all that it encompasses.
What makes this bundle unique is that is that it focuses specifically on our roles as moms, but from a natural perspective… healthy pregnancies and giving birth, first breastfeeding and then going on to nourishing our children through whole foods, diapering and potty training, keeping them healthy and caring for them through illness, teaching them skills like chores and cooking, and making sure their little bodies grow up being exposed to as few chemicals as possible through things like skincare products or what we clean our house with.
The concept behind an ebook bundle is to gather as many relevant resources as possible, combine them into one convenient package, and then offer it to our readers for a smashing price that makes the whole thing totally affordable, and that’s exactly what this is. 35+ books and resrouces that retail for more than $525, in one neat and tidy bundle for just $29.97.
While I haven’t been able to read all of the 35 books yet myself, these ones look particularly worthwhile to me:
- Three different books by fertility specialist Gabriella Rose, MScM, BHSc, ND
- Breastfeeding Simply by Pinky McKay (a lactation consultant and breastfeeding advocate)
- EC Simplified: Infant Potty Training Made Easy and oh crap: potty training (because yes, I’d like to attempt to train baby #4 early, and honestly, don’t tell me that the name of that second book didn’t make you laugh out loud)
- Herbal Remedies During the Cold and Flu Season (because I think every mom could use to know more of these)
- Question to Ask Your Dentist by Will and Susan Revak, who have a huge passion for alternative (and better) dental care
- Finding Balance With Attachment Parenting (this looks like an interesting read to me, because I wouldn’t call myself an attachment parent for multiple reasons, and yet I like my babies near me, I baby wear, I breastfeed exclusively for a long time, I don’t force night weaning, etc.).
- Rebuild from Depression: A Nutrient Guide by Amanda Rose, Ph.D. I have the full paperback version of this and it is a gold mine of information.
- Kids in Training and Teaching Kids to Clean. My kids are amazing in so many ways, but I feel like teaching them to do chores and pick up after themselves is a constant battle. I could use a little help with this one.
- Natural Beauty Recipes by Katie of Wellness Mama. Her online beauty recipes always rock, so I’m sure I’m going to love these!
- Not to mention the ones I already have and love… First Bites, Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert, Herbal Nurturing, Real Food Kids, Restocking the Pantry, Crock On, and of course, my own book, Healthy Homemaking.
