Disclosure & Disclaimer


I’m not a doctor, nutritionist, or any such thing, although I often write about health related topics. I do so from the perspective of an experienced mom who loves to do her research. I love sharing what has worked for me. I hope that this will inspire you to do your own research and take responsibility for making those important health decisions for your own family. You always need to think for yourself though. No one can tell you what’s right for your unique family but you! I am an architect, but I don’t write about that too often, and I promise never to practice architecture on you. I’m also a LEED AP (since 2008), so I do actually know a thing or two about sustainability.

Affiliate Links

If I mention a product that is available on Amazon, I usually use an Amazon affiliate link. This is partly for your convenience to easily pop over and see what it is I’m talking about. The rest of course is to help me justify all the time I spend on this little blog. I will only ever link to products that I have personally used and recommend unless clearly noted within the text of the post.

You can help support GrowingSlower at no cost to you by using my affiliate links whenever you purchase products from Amazon. Even if you don’t buy the product that I linked to, I still get a commission from any purchase you make. So go ahead and shop to your hearts content, while being as green and frugal as possible!

Here’s my Amazon affiliate link: http://amzn.to/2gF8goQ

As required by Amazon:  “GrowingSlower is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.”


Instead of cluttering up each post with the exact connection between GrowingSlower and each sponsor, let this suffice. You may assume that if I am reviewing a product I have been compensated with the understanding that I will write a post about the product. I will never agree to share a product with you with the obligation to say nice things about it. 

I am selective about the businesses that I bring share with my readers. I love to connect like-minded businesses, crafters, and bloggers with GrowingSlower readers. If you’ve been around here long you know that I won’t be hawking anything that advocates the opposite of my natural birth and attachment parenting ideals. You probably won’t see much brightly colored plastic or processed foods either. You get the picture. If you know a small business that might be a good fit as a GrowingSlower sponsor, please check out the advertising page for more information or email me.
