Car sharing has been a known concept in Europe for years but in 2000 the founders of Zipcar brought the idea to their hometown of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and started rolling it out across the U.S. The idea is to bring alternative transportation to life. The benefits of car sharing are evident to Zipcar’s founders and they seek to bring this sustainable solution that has worked so well in Europe to the United States. Zipcar sees itself as more than just a new company on the block or an eco-aware company trying to do good for the now. The company is an ambassador for change, something that is evident throughout the company as they consciously make decisions to better impact our planet in the future. Sure the company is doing great things but is Zipcar worth it for you?

But, over the years I have learned that if I want them to respect and do things for me, I have to first respect them and lead by example.
Most pediatricians will recommend you feed your baby only breast milk for the first six months (if you are breastfeeding. For Formula feeders, it is four months) and then start the weaning process with a slow introduction of solids for practice. By one year, solid intake should be enough to sustain baby and most will give you the go ahead to introduce cow’s milk instead of breast milk, if you wish…
I really think that my successful experience with natural childbirth paved the way for many changes in my life that lead to a more natural way of living. I brought my baby into the world in the most natural way possible – both of us free from any medical interventions that would affect his start in the world. I owed it to him to keep his life as free from “interventions” as possible.
I tend to be lighthearted, but breastfeeding is a passion that I REALLY struggled with and feel that there is very little real life, practical advice out there.
