3 Mom Websites to visit
In this world we live in full of technology and wifi, you learn there is not much that can’t be learned online. Online resources help you to learn a vast amount of information in a short period of time. This holds true for parenting as well. In this article, I am going to share with you 2 mom websites to visit that have helped me out tremendously over the years
TheBreastPumpGuide.com is a great site that compares breast pumps and discusses the different models available. If you have ever had the pleasure of breast pump shopping, you know it can get really overwhelming really fast. There are so many different options that come down to what’s really important for you. My husband and I used this site to pick our breast pump and have been extremely satisfied with the results. This website is HIGHLY recommended. Breast pumps help so you can have milk when they wake up in the middle of the night so you can get them back to sleep.
ABCMouse.com is a great website for young kids that promotes learning. Most of the activities on this website were created to stimulate your child’s brain. This also helps your child learn how to retain information from an early age. Even though this is considered an educational website, you will find that your kids love it because the games were designed by experts to be able to capture the normally short attention span of your toddler. Another benefit to this website is the fact that they have the option to increase the level of difficulty of the games. This means as your child gets smarter, you can make sure they don’t lose interest by gradually increasing the difficulty.
What are some other websites that you recommend? Let me know in the comments selction below. If you liked this article and you can spare a few minutes, please share this article with any other moms you know that would be interested.
How to get your baby to walk faster
Babies grow up fast. For parents, we like to whatever we can do to aid in the growth and development of our children, after all, it’s our natural instinct. In this post, I am going to share a few things you can do to help your baby to walk faster.
Exercise the babies legs
Exercise the babies legs by grabbing both feet and doing a cycling motion. The constant movement helps the baby to develop leg strength faster, which will assist in giving the baby the confidence needed to stand and eventually walk. Once a day will be fine. Try to set a routine so that you can work it into your day. Just a few minutes a day should be enough, you don’t want to over do it. It’s NOT a workout you are simply building the babies strength.
Get A Walker
Walkers help babies learn about footing, what causes movement, gravity, and boost confidence. Walkers keep your baby in an upright position and let the child focus on direction. The traits learned while in the walker make walking second nature when your child is ready to take its first steps.
Let your baby explore
When babies start becoming mobile, as parents we have a tendency to want to scoop them up. The best course of action is to let the baby explore(within reason). Obviously, keep a close eye on the baby and try your best to help them avoid hazards. When babies are close to walking age they begin pulling up on things like couches, or chairs. As time passes they will try to learn how to balance themselves on two legs, once this start happening, you can rest assured that the walking phase is not too far behind. Also letting your baby explore is a good way to tire them out to get your baby to sleep.
By exercising, getting a walker, and letting your baby explore you will be able to get your baby to walk faster. A baby that walks faster can focus on the next milestones. If you enjoyed this blog post share this post. Here are some other ways to get your baby walking.
3 tips to get your baby to sleep
So there’s no manual for this parenting thing. Therefore like others, you have turned to the internet for hopeful advice, thus stumbling upon this blog. Here are 3 tips to get your baby to sleep.
Let the baby cry themselves to sleep
Sometimes even after you have changed the diapers and refreshed bottles the baby is just cranky. If you can’t figure out what’s wrong try leaving the baby in a secured area and disappearing from sight for 10 to 15 min. Sometimes the babies just need time to calm down. This method can be effective but do not ignore your children. Keep an eye on them to make sure that nothing is really wrong. I only recommend doing this for a maximum of 15 minutes. If the baby is not quiet within this time frame it’s time go back in and try something different.
Sing to the baby
Lullabies or even the lyrics to your favorite song will soothe your baby to sleep. If your not a singer turn on your favorite radio stAtion. Smartphone apps like Songza and Spotify have dedicated stations that strictly play lullabies specifically. The lullaby has been popular for many years. You can learn more about the origin of the lullaby here.
If all else fails whip out the car seat, strap the baby in and go for a ride. Sure it seems like a lot of work but it’s almost guaranteed to work. Sometimes it doesn’t take more than one lap around the block. Sometimes maybe a late night run to McDonald’s will do the job. Either way this tried and true method has been reliably putting kids to sleep faithfully for many years. I find the other steps normally partially make the baby sleepy sometimes but this is the knockout blow. As mentioned, its a lot of work but the goal is to get the baby sleep by any means.
