Sleeping baby

This is a must-have in every baby photo album and you just can’t go wrong with this one. A cute, sleeping baby makes for a great opportunity to take photos.

Accessories like a crown, headband or a hat can add to your baby pics and make them unique. Capture the way your child reacts to such accessories in candid photos and watch him/her have fun with it. The combination of nice clothes and an accessory will definitely make your child feel awesome.

Family moments

Ask your significant other to snap pictures of you cuddling and hugging your baby. If you also have an older child, even better! Hire a photographer or use a timer to take a picture to include your entire family. Cute family pictures will help you to see how exactly you all looked at that point of time.

Take a photo with a pet

Your pet dog or cat can add great value to your child’s baby photos. Make a photo album where you include pictures of your child laughing, giggling or playing with your pet. You never know, you might end up with really funny pictures that will fill you with joy!

Dress up!

Don’t fret if Halloween has already passed, photo shoots are a great excuse to dress up your little one too! Find cute outfits (like a lion, bunny or turtle costume) that your children will love, especially if it involves their favorite cartoon character. That’s all it needs – then it’s time to take pictures of them enjoying all the fun!

Use props or toys

Surrounding your child with the things they love will make them happier than ever, so remember to incorporate that into your baby photo shoot! Keep some toys or props such as balloons, leaves or a sock puppet that your child can hold on to while posing for the picture. In such pictures, cuteness is guaranteed!

Baby feet

The littlest feet make the biggest footprints in our hearts! So true, isn’t it? Children grow up too fast and before you know it, your newborn is a toddler already. That’s why it is important to take a picture of every detail of your little one. A popular and adorable choice of photograph is the ‘baby feet’ picture!

Milestones

A child’s life is filled with important milestones. Record videos or take pictures of your child learning to walk, crawl, run and jump! Your young one will be thankful for these pictures.

Reactions to food

We know how children react to different types of food items, be it sweet, sour, bitter or even a little spicy! Grab a camera whenever your child is about to taste something new and capture his/her immediate reaction to it. We’re sure that it will be a moment to remember.

Seasons

Nothing is better than your little one enjoying the different seasons. Take your child to the beach on a summer’s day, ice skating on a winter’s morning, or just watch him playing with leaves in fall. Outdoor locations like these are prefect for clear and stunning photographs of your entire family.

How To Help Your Toddler Welcome A New Baby

How To Help Your Toddler Welcome A New Baby

A new baby on the way is an exciting time for everyone. But how do you prepare your toddler for the change that’s coming? Try to tell your three-year-old that she’s getting a new brother or sister before you tell other family and friends. If her auntie asks her if she’s looking forward to the new baby, and you haven’t explained it to her yet, she may get a bit baffled. Here are 5 ways you can prepare your toddler for a new addition to the family!

1. Talk about the new baby daily until and after she arrives.

Explain that a new baby is being brought into the family because you have more love to share. Try this, “Daddy and I had you because we had lots of love to give. We are having/had your
sister because we found even more love to give. Do you think you’ll have love in your heart to give to your new baby sister?”

toddler-welcome-new-baby

2. Include your toddler in your preparations.

Let him help you pack your bag for the hospital, clean the bottles, paint the nursery and put diapers away. Take a tour of the hospital or birthing center with your toddler in tow. Be sure to
sneak a peek at the new arrivals too.

3. Have your toddler pick out a gift just for the new baby.

Take a special trip to the store and have your toddler pick out a gift just for the new baby. Likewise, pick out a special gift from the baby for his big brother or sister. When your baby and toddler meet, have them give their gifts to each other.

toddler-welcome-new-baby

4. Give your toddler a role.

Talk often about the fact that each member of the family is important in their own way and makes their own special contribution. The family needs each person for it to be whole.

5. Give a little extra love.

Emphasize the older child’s importance by going through his baby pictures and talking about what a wonderful baby he was, and what a wonderful boy he is now.

5 Easy Art Projects For Toddlers!

5 Easy Art Projects For Toddlers!

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.                       ~ Pablo Picasso

Children can be very artistic and very messy at the same time. Creating art can enable them to explore various materials, colors etc. and think creatively at an early age. Toddler activities are slightly difficult to do because they are still learning and growing. In order to enhance their fine motor skills, you can introduce some simple art activities so that your little one is engrossed and entertained for at least a few hours!

As a parent, you must remember that your toddler has a short attention span and he might not even complete the art project. That is totally fine! Make it interesting for your child by avoiding repetition and by introducing new things every time.

To help you do that, we have 5 simple and easy art projects that any toddler can successfully do!

1. Painting over a stencil

  • First, spread a newspaper on the area which might get messy.
  • Find a large sheet of white paper and put it on the table or on the floor.
  • Place a stencil sheet which has simple cut-outs to paint over.
  • Give you toddler a big brush to dip in homemade edible paint just in case your toddler decides to eat it too. Here’s one way to make edible paint.
  • That’s it! Let your toddler paint to his heart’s content!

stencil-art

2. Sponge painting

  • Sponge painting can be super exciting for little kids.
  • Cut out different colors of sponges in various shapes (such as a smiley face, heart, leaf, star etc.)
  • Let your toddler dip one side of these sponges in edible paint and stamp it on a fresh white sheet of paper or a plain cloth.

3. Fingerprint, Hand print & Footprint art

  • For this art project, you can draw a tree trunk with branches on a paper with a black marker.
  • Once that dries, ask your child to dip her fingertips in edible paint and stamp it on the branches to imitate leaves.
  • You can also get your toddler to make fingerprints, hand prints and footprints on the paper. After it dries, you can draw funny shapes and smileys on those prints together!
  • This makes for a beautiful piece of artwork worthy of being framed!

finger-painting-at

4. Vegetable printing

  • Slice a few firm vegetables like carrots, potatoes, celery stalks, okra in different ways and allow your toddler to dip their ends in paint.
  • This will create beautiful prints which look like flowers!
  • Finish off the artwork by painting the stems of the flowers yourself.
  • Ta-da! Now you have a joint effort by you and your little one!

5. Spray bottle art

  • Spray bottles can be an object of intrigue for toddlers and they won’t stop playing with it!
  • To make spray bottle art, fill a spray bottle with edible or non-toxic colors mixed with a little water.
  • Keep a towel on the floor that can absorb the paint that will drip down.
  • Place a large paper on a stand.
  • That’s pretty much it. The next step is to let your child spray the watery paint on the paper and create his very own abstract art!

10 Ways To Raise Shy Kids

10 Ways To Raise Shy Kids

Every child is inherently different. Some children are extroverted and outgoing, while some others are shy and introverted. Every child has a distinct temperament. If your child is one of the shy ones, don’t be worried! It’s okay to have a shy child and there is nothing wrong with it. Researchers have found that inhibition is an important aspect of temperament that is partly hereditary. They also believe that some children are biologically born shy. So instead of trying to change the fact that your little one is shy, embrace it!

Here are 10 ways you can care for your introverted bundle of joy –

1. Let them know that you understand

Your child needs conversation and he will be most comfortable with his own parents. Make sure you keep talking to your child gently and let him know that you understand and care for him.

2. Ask questions

Ask your child if something or someone is bothering him, kindly. Do not interrogate your child in any way. Have patience and give him time to open up. He will respond positively to kindness.

shy-child

3. Encourage outdoor play time

Your shy child doesn’t have to stay at home all the time. Let him be around other kids of the same age. Even if he doesn’t open up to the other kids easily, at least it will expose him to social settings which will eventually help him warm up to them.

4. Be Patient

Nothing is worse than pressurizing a shy child. Don’t rush him to do something. Give him time, even if he’s taking more time than the other kids. Take a deep breath and just be patient with your child. Use a calm and soothing voice to help your child.

5. Help them find their passion

Some kids can be very timid but can express themselves better through art. Maybe your child likes to draw or maybe your child loves to play the piano. Whatever it is, channel this interest of your shy child into a passion she will truly treasure forever. It will be a liberating experience for your child and bring great joy to her.

shy-kid

6. Motivate your child

Be their personal cheerleader. If your child is making an effort to do something out of his comfort zone, appreciate him and remind him that he’s doing great! “I know that this was difficult for you but you did it so well!” is a great way to uplift and inspire your child.

7. Don’t shame or humiliate them

Do not compare them to other children, especially with harsh words. Don’t put them on the spot. This can give your child anxiety and lower her confidence even further. Your child doesn’t choose to be introverted – this is just how she is.

8. Don’t force them

Don’t force them into any situation they clearly want to avoid. If they really don’t want to do something, don’t push them to do it. Interacting with other people can be stressful and emotionally draining for your child and sometimes it’s better to take a break.

shy-girl

9. Encourage them to express themselves

Your child might have a lot of ideas, questions, opinions, fears which she just doesn’t know how to express. Make it easier for her by encouraging her to ask you anything at all. Make it a routine so that she gradually gets comfortable with it. Answer these questions with attentiveness & positivity.

10. Be affectionate

Avoid calling your child ‘shy’ every time. You don’t need to put your child into a category. Be affectionate, sympathetic and loving to your kid. Snuggle and hug your little one every chance you get!

It is essential to know if your child is introverted by nature or has become reserved because of a specific event. If your child is going through something or if the shyness is severe, it is best to take her to a mental health professional who specializes in child care. Either way, keep loving your children just the way they are!

10 Strategies To Teach Your Toddler To Listen Better

10 Strategies To Teach Your Toddler To Listen Better

A toddler begins to exhibit non-compliance at the age of two! Common behaviors during this stage are frequent use of the word “no,” difficulty sharing, claiming possessions as “mine”, picky eating, and throwing tantrums when they do not get their way. Below are a few strategies for minimizing non-compliance and increasing listening.

Top 10 Strategies To Teach Your Toddler To Listen Better Are:

1. Be genuine and sincere

Use phrases such as “I need you to” instead of “You need to” when you need your child to do something.

2. Use directives and questions rarely

Avoid firing questions or instructions to your child that they fail to respond to.

3. Be a good listener

Be a role model for good listening by showing that you are listening to your child by imitating and reflecting back what your child says.

toddler-listen

4. Provide information

Give information in a non-demanding manner like “It is time to get changed” or “I’d like you to get changed,”, hoping that your child will consider the information and change their behavior.

5. Give choices with acceptable parameters

State all requests or directions as choices when you can. Instead of saying, “You need to get dressed now.” Try, “Do you want to put on your shirt or pants first?”

6. Reinforce your message

Along with verbal messages, give visual cues, physical cues and demonstrations. Say, “Time for bed!” by flicking the light switch, laying a hand on baby’s shoulder and steering her toward her bed and pulling down the covers and patting the pillow.

7. Get down to the child’s level

Eye contact is important. Squat down or pick up your child, so you can look him in the eye and get his attention.
get-to-toddler-level

8. Practice friendly and a positive tone

Make use of positive terms that tell your child what to do (e.g., “Walk!”) instead of what not to do (e.g., “No running!”).

9. Give warnings

Practice giving advance notices before a big change will take place, especially if your toddler happily involved with toys or a friend.

10. Use appropriate language

Make use of positive terms that tell your child what to do (e.g., “Walk!”) instead of what not to do (e.g., “No running!”).

Checklist: Packing Your Baby’s Diaper Bag!

Checklist: Packing Your Baby’s Diaper Bag!

A well-organized diaper-bag can save your day! But what items do you really need to stock in your bag? It mainly depends on how old your child is and for how long you’ll be out.
Explore the following checklist to stock items in the diaper-bag of your toddlers :

1. Diapers and wipes

Ensure that you carry diapers and wipes as you’ll need one diaper per hour and a few extra sometimes. Take a minimum of 10 wipes for diaper changes, sticky hands and dirty surfaces.

baby-diaper

2. Disposable bags

Carry disposable bags for storing soiled diapers. Make sure that your child can’t get to them, since plastic bags (including the biodegradable versions) pose a suffocation risk!

3. Thermometer

Carry a thermometer with you as it is a compact and discreet method of checking for fever.
thermometer-in-a-diaper-bag

4. Hand sanitizer and towel

Carry a hand sanitizer for cleaning your hands after changing diapers especially when there’s no time or place to wash them. Pack a towel to wipe your hands as well.

5. Bottles and sippy cup

Keep sippy cups and bottles handy to feed milk and water to your little one.

6. Extra outfit (including socks)

Take extra outfits as you never know when spit-up, drool, spills, or poop explosions will necessitate a change of clothing.

7. Pacifier and bibs

Carry bibs and pacifiers as baby bibs are the best way to keep your baby’s clothes spit-up free. Pacifiers offer a temporary distraction and enable your baby to fall asleep easily.
baby-in-a-diaper-bag

8. Snacks

Fill the diaper bag with a jar of baby-food and spoon or finger foods depending on your baby’s age.

9. Favorite blanket

Carry a blanket to cover your baby or as a changing pad, nursing cover, bib, shade, or burp cloth.

Carry toys according to the outing and your baby’s age.

Read any storybook! Put together a basket of tangible objects to represent each page of the book. Then count them together with your toddler!

4. Jingle Bells Sensory Bin

In this activity, you will have to fill your bin with paper shred. Hide the jingle bells making sure to count how many you hide. Instruct your child to find the all the bells.

5. Paper plate wreathes

With Christmas so close, toddler made paper plate wreathes would be a fun place to start! Grab some stickers or Christmas stamps to get the wreathes decorated!

6. Christmas tree sensory bin

Put a layer of cotton balls on the bottom of a plastic container. Cut the tree branches or garland into pieces that are about 4 inches long and place the pieces on top of the cotton balls. Add the tinsel, jingle bells, and plastic bulb ornaments. Sensory Bins are always fun, tactile sensory activities for kids. Your children are sure to love exploring the parts of a Christmas tree in this Christmas tree sensory bin.

7. Sorting Christmas hats

First, cut three sizes of red triangles. I cut 4 of each. Add strips and white and pompoms to resemble Christmas hats. Add it to the tray, mixed up. Give the instruction to sort the hats by showing your child the different sizes. Place one of each size in each space provided for your child to copy. Let your child sort and count the hats too!

8. Christmas song basket

There are so many Christmas songs for kids and you only get the chance to sing them for about one month a year! A fun way to teach the kids some new songs and have fun singing together would be to make a Christmas song basket. Then let toddler take turns choosing one of the Christmas props out of the basket and start singing!

9. Gift Tags

Arrange a selection of the Christmas stickers, hand out the cards and let them stick the stickers wherever they like. For the younger toddlers try to use bigger stickers. Use the raised foam stickers as they are easier for little fingers!
christmas-gift-tags

10. Creating gift wrapping paper

Creating beautiful gift wrapping paper with your toddler is as easy for you as it is for your toddler who loves counting to three. Be prepared with all of the art supplies. Let
them hold the paintbrush however they can, let them splash paint wherever they can on the paper and let them mix all the colors to make one big amazing color on a
gift wrapping paper.
