When I started this journey to find products for moms, babies and families that are made in the USA, I was lost on how to begin. I spent hours on Internet searches and contacting companies (when the website did not list where the product was made). Just recently, I found the perfect resource for any mom who is looking to buy American made baby products. It is a book called, Made Here, Baby! by Bruce Wolk. I wish I had this book from day one.
Made Here, Baby! contains a wealth of information. The book starts off with a brief introduction about why the book was written and why someone should consider seeking out products made in the USA. Each chapter addresses specific product categories such as products for infants, children's clothing and accessories, children's furniture, sports and fitness equipment, and toys and games. The information is well organized and very easy to read. What I really like too is that Mr. Wolk also includes an interesting fact about the manufacturer. In the financial climate today where we are often so concerned about the lowest price, it is refreshing to see what good manufacturers are doing and what our money, when we choose to buy a product produced in the United States, which is often a higher priced item, is supporting. The book ends with indexes of women-owned or founded companies, green companies, and companies that have been in operation for over a century. This book is loaded with valuable information for any parent who wants to buy high-quality American made products.
This book is an invaluable resource and I am so thankful to Bruce Wolk for his hours of dedication in compiling the information so that parents can easily find products for their family that are made in the USA.
