Tried-and-True Potty Training Tips to Ease Your Child’s Transition

Kids grow up fast. While some transitions are bittersweet, most parents are happy to say good-bye to diapers when the time is right. However, potty training can be frustrating for both parents and kids without an understanding of the process. Knowing your child’s unique needs is important, say experts.

Tummy Time

Tummy time is one of the first baby activities that is suggested to new parents. It’s a baby’s first workout and, loved or hated, is an important part of infant development.

Green Basics for Baby

There seems to have been a lot of buzz about “going green” in the past few years, and many of us have jumped on the bandwagon to protect our families from harsh chemicals and pesticides. Since 2002, the sales of organic food, cleaning and beauty products have nearly tripled.

You’ve heard the saying “a happy wife is a happy life.” I agree with that, but I think having a happy mommy and a happy baby are equally important.

Milestones That Make You Go “UGH!”

As I reached for the bathroom door only to find it locked (with my 2-and-a-half-year-old IN IT), I had visions of calling 911, sheepishly having to explain the situation. I tried coaxing my son to unlock the door because, by golly, if he locked it, surely he could unlock it, right?! WRONG. Instead of continuing to coax my son, I figured my energy was better placed in coaxing myself to remain calm. Our son’s not only being able to reach, but actually WORK, the locks in our house is definitely a milestone that makes me go “Ugh!”
