We worry so much about what our kids eat, but we also should worry about what they don’t eat—toothpaste and other dental products! Even though children don’t (and shouldn’t) ingest oral hygiene products, these products do get absorbed by our little ones in small amounts, and can contain chemicals, which is why it really matters which products you use.
Why is it that tummy aches always seem to happen at the worst possible times? Like when you’re out to a nice family dinner at a restaurant, on vacation, or even (ugh!) in the middle of the night? And if you’ve got a really little one—too little to explain what’s wrong—the crying can go on for hours.
When you’re toting a small tot across the globe (or even just across state lines), one thing you’ve got to have on hand is snack food. Lots and lots of it. Because make no mistake about it: there will be a meltdown during your journey (at least one)—and there’s nothing like something yummy to nosh on to turn a cranky kid into a happy one.
Yay, summer finally is here! Your little one at last can wave bye-bye to bulky sweaters and happily greet the swing sets, beach blanket naps and sunshine that await in the days ahead.
Summertime delights aside, however, this season brings with it some serious safety concerns for babies and small children. Here’s how to keep your kids safe during the summer months—without missing a moment of fun in the sun!
You’ve probably bought many gifts for the man in your life—anniversary gifts, Valentine’s Day gifts, birthday gifts. But there’s something really special about choosing that first Father’s Day gift. It’s a great opportunity to say, “I love you,” “thank you,” and “our baby is so lucky to have you for a dad,” all rolled into one.
It’s nearly impossible to flip through a parenting magazine without seeing handfuls of ads about products that contain DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that occurs naturally in breast milk and is believed to support healthy brain development. DHA is used to fortify formula, infant cereals, yogurts and other forms of nutrition; it’s also available as a supplement for moms and babies. And, DHA is widely used for toddlers and older children whose brains, of course, are still growing and developing every day.
There are so many baby lotions out there—so how do you choose which one is right for your bundle of joy? When you browse through the extensive and ever-growing selection of sweet-smelling baby skincare products, you can feel like you’re slip-sliding away into a land where everything sounds like it’s the “best choice” for your baby. But the truth is, some products are better options than others, especially if your little one has sensitive skin or you’re concerned about artificial scents and ingredients.
