Kate Can Breastfeed and William Can Help

Breastfeeding is an extremely eco-friendly and healthy step that all parents can take. Breast milk is not only the perfect food for all babies, royal or otherwise, but eliminates harmful chemicals found in formula, supports early bonding, reduces the risk of SIDS, lowers obesity rates, and cuts down on packaging waste and energy use. Plus, though we’re sure the royal family isn’t concerned about money, everyday parents will appreciate how inexpensive breastfeeding is. Best of all breastfeeding can be a family affair. Dads, including William, can help support their partners by being great breastfeeding advocates or by feeding baby pumped breast milk. Hopefully Kate’s hospital supports breastfeeding, but if not she can always look into a good lactation consultant.

Decorate Green

Though red, white and blue (the colors of the Union Jack) spring to mind as ideal nursery colors, hopefully Kate and William are also thinking green. There are many great ways to green the royal nursery (or your own nursery) including purchasing an eco-friendly crib and organic baby mattress, using low-voc nursery paint, stocking up on eco-friendly toys and using energy efficient lighting. Personally, we think the eco-friendly Royal Bird Rocking Chair shown above would be the perfect royal nursery addition.

Use Cloth Diapers for the Royal Baby Bum

Companies like gDiaper are making it a snap to outfit even the most royal babies in cloth diapers. Cloth diapers come with a slew of eco-perks for all families such as saving on resources, cutting back on massive landfill waste and they are 100% adorable to boot. If cloth is too much for the royal family, we hope they consider the next best thing — eco-friendly disposables. If the royal family is really eco-invested they may also want to use reusable baby wipes.
