Time for dinner, bed, brushing teeth. How do you guys make time to be more efficient for you? Any parenting hacks/tips?
Hi, I cloth diaper my 13 month old. Overnights are becoming a problem. We are starting to see a trend where she wakes up with a diaper leak. Stripping her crib, bath & change of clothes all first thing in the morning is becoming old. Also, it must be uncomfortable for her. She doesn’t cry just sits in all the wetness. She sleeps about 10-12 hours overnight now. Goes to sleep with 1 - 8... More
My husband and I decided we want to move to Washington state from Kansas. It’s a lot more expensive there but we want to be closer to family! Any tips on selling everything/saving? Do’s and don’ts? What was your experience like moving to a different state. Thanks guys!
My daughter will be 7 towards the end of the year! She is such a intelligent little human! She is so well behaved at school, with grandparents, wherever she may be! But she doesn’t listen at home! Am I alone here? Lol I have recently introduced a chore chart that she gets to check off daily as she goes! Any other helpful tips or advice for getting her to listen to what she is told without me ha... More
My oldest is headed to preschool Tuesday and I am scrambling to figure out lunches. What are your kids' favorite packed, no-need-to-heat again, no-nut lunches? For context, we are no added sugar, prefer to avoid processed foods eaters. Even though we've tried sandwiches, my son dissects them and only eats the bread. 🤦🏻♀️ In an attempt to be prepared for anything that works, I'v... More
Does anyone have any good tricks for helping a toddler to sleep in the car? My LO uses a forward facing carseat and is small for her age. She has no problem falling asleep in the car, but can only sleep for about 20 min before she wakes up crying due to neck pain. I have tried a small neck pillow, a rolled up blanket and a refular pillow. We are not often in the car for hours on end but we have... More
I listened to this episode recently and found it really helpful! The title of the episode is how to deal with whining in a different way but she definitely talks about how her strategy applies to all behavior that can be challenging. I have been starting with the “ say what you see” portion of the strategy and I found it helpful not only for my kids, but it definitely also gives me space to mak... More
I’ve been making this for awhile now and it’s so much cheaper than buying store B.B. 4 cups of water, 4oz of whatever liquid soap you’re comfortable putting on your LO, 3oz coconut or olive oil (or glycerin). Mix it up and pour it into a squirt container. Enjoy:). Edit: the coconut oil is better when it’s the liquid/fractionated form. Like the now brand.
My 6 month old has been scratching herself so bad, (bug bites have added on to the problem) I’ve put on mittens but she just sucks on it and it gets icky. We’re tried oatmeal baths (doesn’t really seem to help). Dove scent free baby wash, Aveeno oatmeal wash and cream. Non scented Vaseline like her pediatrician told me. We’ve tried baths twice a week and frequent bath schedule as well. It doesn... More
Also, any recommendations about how to keep him cool during the ride. AC can take awhile to reach the back.
I used to be able to trim them in his sleep, but he wakes easily now. I could use some good tips and hacks!
