Why I Narrate To My Kids

I often narrate what I'm doing or what I'm about to do to prepare my kids for what to expect. I usually break things down into steps. I started this to prevent a tantrum when something happens out of their expectation but it helps tremendously in enlarging their communication and vocabulary. Talking To Myself When we had our son, our first, I was told to talk to my child often but once dad went back to work and and I was alone with him we were usually in silence. I always felt awkward talking to him because he couldn't talk…

Managing Sensitive Baby Skin

My daughter has always had that baby soft skin. To this day, at a year and a half, she still does. She's got that soft and fair skin that can easily be irritated. When she was a few months old she started developing some rash-like patches around her chest, arms and back of her thighs and suspected a food allergy or Eczema. Turns out she just has fair and sensitive skin, dodged a bullet! However, I do take similar precautions and use soaps and lotions meant for Eczema as well.

My Daughter’s Silly Baby Hair

At a year and a half old my daughter's hair has been growing from the back of her cowlick at her crown all the way to her eyes, making it a little difficult to manage. If you're not familiar with a cowlick, its like a hurricane swirl that directs hair in different directions, it's a chunk of hair that has a life of its own. They are usually on the crown of one's scalp, although sometimes on the forehead or back of the neck. They cannot be removed, only somewhat managed, although children's cowlicks are said to mature on their…

Basically, meal planning for your baby!Blenders and ice cubes will soon become your best friend.I figured out this trick with…
