Traveling with your baby can cause a bit of anxiety beforehand, especially if it’s your first long trip. Here are a few different travel tips to better prepare for your journey so it becomes a memorable experience for both you and your little one.
Traveling can be a beautiful experience when we put all things in place before hitting the road. When you're traveling with your little one, it becomes even more exciting, and it can even be a great time to bond.
My partner and I are constantly evaluating our parenting. We’re very committed to learning from our “mistakes” and passing on as little of our baggage to our kiddo as possible. Our intention in doing a “yes day” was to observe the ins and outs of our son without “waiting to correct his behavior”.
It’s summer, which means lots of time spent outdoors, playing and enjoying the beautiful warm weather. However, all that time spent outside often means your kids will have more exposure to bugs, and all the frustrating and painful bites and stings that come along with them!
We must try to remember that behaviour is learnt, that we have the power to influence a babies’ behaviour positively or negatively and that we need to set our expectations based upon their developmental ability, circumstance and age.
One of the wonders of being human is our individuality – no one is quite the same! And babies are no different. So, how do we understand infant behaviour, without putting pressure on ourselves for our little ones to develop in exactly the same way others do? How do we support them with their behavioural development whilst accepting them for who they are (and who they will become)? And when should we seek help if we are worried?
Father’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to surprise Dad than with a special homemade keepsake? Gather your craft supplies, set up an art table, and get to work with your kids creating fun projects for Dad this year.
Water is essential for active, growing children. After all, a child’s body is 65-75% water! Adequate hydration is necessary for regulating a number of bodily functions, such as proper digestion, movement of waste, blood circulation, joint health, and body temperature regulation.
