Non-toxic products for kids
From baby foods to play couches, learn how to protect your child from toxic chemicals throughout the home
I’m a PhD Chemist and Public Health Expert turned mom of four.
I spent over a decade learning how the environment affects moms and young kids (here’s all the details).
Since my time in the lab, I’ve become a mom with four kids of my own. As I grew as a parent, I used my nerdy science and research skills to evaluate everything I read about raising strong, thriving kids.
And what I realized is this: There’s a lot of confusion out there.
Constantly we’re being told about the newest terrifying chemical or the trendiest discipline style.
In the sea of internet “experts,” how do you know who to trust?
You want to listen to someone who actually cares about you and your kids, AND has the background to separate fact from fiction, actual truth from alarmism.
Whether you want to know the best non-toxic products for your family or just learn how to connect with your growing, wiggly toddler (who suddenly wants to tell you NO! at every turn), I’m here to help.
You’ve come to the right place.

Kait’s experience with the Evidence-Based Mommy
Through talking to Samantha, I have a much clearer picture of the action steps I need to take to accomplish my goals as a new parent and subside my former fears with all the new changes. She has an excellent wealth of knowledge and I appreciated the blend of science, psychology, and real talk that made up our conversation!
