(New Posts) JET Alum Parenting Blog: “US-JAPAN FAM”

hezamamaHeather Wilson Tomoyasu (ALT Ibaraki-ken, 2004-06), previously Manager of Public Relations at the Japanese Chamber of Commerce, is now a newly established work-at-home mom, owner of Miny Moe (selling diaper & nursing pad sampler packs), and blogging in Brooklyn on her site US-Japan Fam to hopefully compile the ultimate resource for Japanese-American cross cultural families, delving into the matters of raising children bilingually, bi-culturally, and bi-racially in the Big Apple.

Don’t Fry Baby!: Let me preface this entry by saying I have not yet tried any of these products yet, and the companies have not asked me to promote them, nor do they know that I am doing so. These are just some products or companies I’ve come across in my search to protect my little one from the harsh rays of his first summer without slathering him with chemicals or keeping him tethered to my sofa indoors all season! Check ’em out if you’re so inclined, and please leave a comment if you have tried (and recommend or don’t recommend) any of these…  <CONTINUE to see a list of great organic sunblocks and UPF 50+ UV clothing options!>
