The Best Place to Store Bibs

Photo: ShutterstockMealtime with a toddler is crazy enough as it is. There’s the hunger meltdown, there’s the mess, there might even be an overall dissatisfaction with being confined to the high chair while they eat. And where the hell are all the bibs? You don’t need to be rummaging through kitchen drawers for a clean…

Photo: ShutterstockThe pacifier is a wonderful thing. It helps our littlest ones soothe themselves to sleep when nothing else will quite do the trick. Eventually, though, you want them to be able to self-soothe. They grow from babies into toddlers and you pine for one picture without the binky in the mouth. And as tooth…

Photo: ShutterstockYou decided not to go overboard on gifts with your toddler this year. You asked (begged? demanded!) that your family members follow suit. They are still so young, you reasoned.

When you have little kids, it can be tempting to go all-out for the holidays, stuffing as many gifts as you can under the tree, under the guise of creating family memories (that they’re unlikely to remember). But money is also finite; in fact, you may still be trying to pull yourself out of credit…

When my son was a toddler, we went through a very big “sensory activities” phase. Any new texture that he could squish or mold (and incorporate into his dinosaur battles) would keep him occupied for dozens of precious minutes. He loved regular Play-Doh, so I went in search of a homemade version that would be…

Assist Children Relax With a ‘Brain Video Game’

0
Photo: Shutterstock The thing about toddlers is that they’re mind-numbingly irrational. It’s not their fault, of course. It’s going to be a solid two decades before those brains are fully developed and able to offer up true logical reasoning to the world, but still. It’s frustrating.
