For FUTURE reference.A candid list of practical things to do in the last weeks of pregnancy. Things I wished I had known. If you are dreaming of being a mom, take a break from pinning the cute stuff and pin this for future reference.
VERY interesting read. Ways to carry your baby and how it effects your their development. New Moms: read this. Research-based information on the effects of strollers, buggies, papooses and swaddling as well as the benefits of proper baby-wearing.
In a small Ziplock bag: cup half and half (milk works too), 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp vanilla. Insert that bag into a gallon Ziplock filled with ice and salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Then remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream!
Christmas Eve gift box (they get to open it on Christmas Eve)! They get new pjs (to wear that night), a Christmas movie, hot chocolate, snacks for the movie, etc. We already do pjs and slippers as our Christmas Eve gift but this is even better!
Backyard Chalkboard - paint and mount an outdoor chalkboard on a boundary fence for a great activity for children. Less mess + the rain washes it away! Add some simple wooden shapes in a bucket so kids can trace around them & create masterpieces.
This everyday sippy cup has a brilliant secret: a hidden medicine dispenser inside! When your child requires medication, just fill it as needed, snap it in place, and let your child's favorite beverage mask the taste. gotta have these when I have kids!
Oh, this is a life saving idea! Sippy cups won't hit the floor. A strap attached with a suction cup under the table. I wish I had thought of this when my son was in a high chair. He was a Sippy Cup Tossing Olympic hopeful.
