Cavity Prevention Should Begin as an Infant – Baby’s Gum and Teeth Care

Taking care of your child’s teeth is very important and many parents don’t realize that you should begin taking care of them before they come in. When my son was an infant and we were at the doctor’s office for a well check, his doctor informed us that we should begin wiping my son’s gums with a wash cloth and water.  Wiping down his mouth and gums with a wash cloth will get him used to getting his teeth cleaned before he is ever introduced to a toothbrush.  I was a bad mommy and this…

Toddler Foodie

Kinsey girl is 10 months old now (wowzers!), and I have come a long way in the foodie department since I last talked about it here. We went with a hybrid version of Baby Led Weaning, because I am a total nutcase every time Kinsey gags or makes choking noises. The theory makes sense. Teach your kid to chew before teaching them to swallow…I support it, but I also wanted solid foods to be an opportunity…

How to Make Bathing Your Infant More Enjoyable?

Bathing an infant isn’t an easy task and can be an overwhelming experience.  Once a baby is wet and then you add soap to the equation, an infant becomes very slippery and are hard to hang on to.  Luckily, when you baby is smaller they don’t have to be bathed every day.  In fact, your baby probably won’t like bath time until they are a bit older.  Keep in mind that even though your tiny newborn can’t splash you, be prepared to get wet.  Read more: …

Do You Think All Teens Should Experience Being a Parent for A Few Days?

My daughter sent me a text message on her way home from school, don’t worry she isn’t texting and driving, and said “guess what”.  As a parent, I was thinking the worst.  She said she was given a “baby doll”.  I automatically knew that she was given a “real baby” simulator to take care of for a few days.  Read more at: Uplifting Families…
