It’s a new year, a new opportunity to reset ourselves and be more compassionate, fulfilled, and successful. g founders Kim and Jason Graham-Nye have a few ways they’re reaching these goals, and we thought you’d find them helpful in your life as a parent, employee, partner, and friend (with a few hints at what’s to come here at g!)

The holidays can be wonderful and magical and colorful and joyful and … stressful. In this 3-minute video, g founders Kim and Jason Graham-Nye share a few traditions that help them keep the stress at bay, and focus on what matters to their family.
For many of us, it’s hard to beat the excitement of your baby’s first holiday. They may not understand what all the celebration is about, but we’re pretty sure they know something special is going on – lights, sounds, smells, friends and family! At g we’re big fans of supporting small businesses and handmade makers. With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of our favorite gifts for your (or your favorite) little one.

Being a new parent can feel especially isolating. Babies are beautiful and wonderful and all, but they’re not big talkers, at least not early on. Thanks to social media, new parents can now connect with one another virtually to help with the isolation. But being social on social media and finding your tribe are not the same.

In 2006 one Indiana gMum named Brighid set out to find her tribe. She started a Yahoo chat group for fans and customers of gDiapers. The group was a magnet for like-minded moms and dads looking to connect. Over 5,000 messages were shared each month, covering topics from “Why do the gPants close around the back?” to “Any tips for increasing my milk supply?” The Yahoo group scratched the social itch that so many new parents were craving, and it set a precedent for finding new ways to connect online and in person.
