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.
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!
My little one is 17 months old and we are still going strong with breastfeeding. It's safe to say every mom has a goal of when to stop breastfeeding. For some it's for a few months, 6 months or once baby turns a year. There are many reasons for a mom to stop breastfeeding. Whether it be going back to work, pregnant or maybe just wants her breasts to herself LOL Breastfeeding past a year old was not my goal. I said once he turns one I am done. Well guess what? It was not up to me. My son is still nowhere close to ending breastfeeding and I am 100% ok with this!
Having a newborn is already tough enough. Add breastfeeding to the mix and it becomes a lot harder and MORE exhausting. I decided to nurse my youngest. This was brand new to me as I did not breastfeed my first two sons. Bottle feeding was so much easier than breastfeeding. Why would I want to breastfeed? Well, there are so many benefits to breastfeeding and this time around I had the time to do it. You can read my experience with Breastfeeding vs Formula – My Experience to get a perspective of both! My first 2 sons are both under a year apart. Therefore, I was super overwhelmed and new to parenting, at the time. There are a few stages you go through breastfeeding newborn - 12 months.
