Summer is officially here in just a couple of weeks! It is already hot with temperatures in the 90s here in Massachusetts. We get the really humid summers with no breeze. However, there is plenty to do here. We have the beaches, mountains and the famous Cape Cod everyone goes to during the summer! Here are 5 Summer Activities to do with Your Kids!
Sleep training and night weaning a toddler isn’t easy. My son is 20 months and I can now officially say my son is sleep trained and can sleep throughout the night without his “bee bee.” I have been trying to get my toddler to sleep in his crib throughout the night without nursing every 2 hours for months! Here is how I did it.
Traveling with babies and toddlers is never a fun idea. You want to be prepared, as much as possible. This was my first time flying with a toddler as I never flew with my older 2 when they were little. This time around we were celebrating my son’s 11th birthday. His birthday gift to Disney. And with a nursing toddler, who is very attached to me, there was no way he was staying behind! Here are my tips, traveling with babies and toddlers!
A while ago, a school parent and I were talking about breastfeeding and she told me she felt like a cow everytime she pumped. I still remember that. I completely agree with that statement! I returned to work temporarily after I had my youngest. I would pump using my Medela Pump. Well a month into work, the pandemic came along and I started working from home. Boy was I glad, since I was pumping to relieve myself, as my son has always refused the bottle. My husband would come up so I could feed him. I felt so guilty, that my son was starving because he refused the bottle! Anyway, the plus of working from home, is being home with my kids. I really disliked pumping and discovered the haakaa breast pump. This is why you should get the haakaa breast pump!
It is officially spring on March 20th this year. A year ago, the country and the world was shut down due to the famous Coronavirus. A year later and we are still dealing with this deadly virus. As long as we stay safe during this pandemic, we can still enjoy ourselves. Here are 5 spring activities to do with your kids!
It is important to keep your toddler active, busy and learning! There are many gymnastics benefits for toddlers because you get to bond with your child, but also teach your little one social skills. This is super beneficial for my son and probably many young children during this pandemic. My son is super attached to me and scared of everyone except for everyone in my home, which includes, his 2 brothers, my husband and myself. There is a new instructor in training in his swim class, so these last 2 weeks he hasn't been too comfortable. It takes him longer to warm up to a male vs female. Must be the deep voice!
Do you struggle to find everyday learning activities to do with your toddler? I admit, sometimes I do, as I want to play and teach my toddler what he should be doing now, for his milestones. Playtime, of any form is super important but it's nice to implement learning activities for their age. This helps advance their skills. A while ago I found the playfully app. (Not Sponsored). This app is geared for children ages 0-3 months. It lists fun and quick activities to play with your child, based on age. There is a paid version but I use the free one and it still provides plenty of fun!
