Baby Drooling? 5 Revealing Things About Your (Adorable) Drooling Baby

Bibs aren’t just for meal time! By the time your baby is around two months old, you may find yourself with more and more soggy blankets, drool rags, and onesies.

Here are some of the burning questions we’ve heard about drool, and the, ahem, easy-to-digest answers from the Kinder Care site: 1. I swear the drool started coming out of my baby overnight.

For Some Kids, Change Is Hard (Like Foot-Stomping, I-Don’t-Wanna Hard). Here’s How to Help Them Be a Little More Flexible

Flat tires. Burned dinners. An outflow of cash you didn’t expect. Sometimes things go awry, and even well-grounded adults can lose their sense of calm. So we shouldn’t be surprised, that when faced with sudden changes, many kids have a tendency to, well, freak out. Let’s set the scene: It’s Thursday, your family’s designated pizza night, but when you arrive at your favorite pie shop, it’s unexpectedly closed. In a valiant effort to save the day, you suggest a super fun taco restaurant down the way—“Hey, there’s even a mariachi band!” But your...

Great for Babies & Big Kids of All Ages: Easy Homemade Applesauce

While it may take more than just an apple a day to keep the doctor away, these sweet, crispy, kid-friendly delights are indeed loaded with nutrition that is vital to good health—and that makes us feel saucy. Applesaucy!

Summer: The Picnic Essentials Checklist-  All You Need to Be Prepared

Summer is coming and eating outdoors during the summer months is not only a treat but a fun adventure for little ones! Children of all ages love it: For infants, it’s a chance to watch the leaves blow in the breeze. For toddlers, it’s a chance to look around and explore. For older children, it’s a chance to bounce after a ball between bites of something yummy. If you’re like us, though, every so often you might wind up at the park missing something crucial, be it spoons for fruit salad or napkins to help clean up after eating. That’s why we...

20 Activities That Are Actually Doable If You’re Working From Home With a Toddler

Here we are, home with the kids—still. No, we can’t go to our regular fun or make-it-through-the-day places. Can we really keep this up? Absolutely. And it doesn’t need to be stressful. Keeping it simple is the secret to making it work for everyone. The key to a successful extended period of time at home is balance. Rest is equally important to outside play. Fun activities are equally important to everyone (including parents) as having alone time. Make time for each of these types of activities to ensure everyone is weathering...

From Chaos to Calm: Creating Space for Mindfulness

From Chaos to Calm: Creating Space for Mindfulness

Learn why mindfulness matters for kids. Right now, everything happening outside your home can be overwhelming for everyone in your family. When you need to destress, you might go for a run, call a friend to vent, or just take some alone time. Children need to decompress too, but they don’t always have the skills (yet) to regulate their emotions. When kids can practice mindfulness (noticing feelings, naming emotions, or asking for help with coping skills), they’re strengthening a critical part of their brain that links directly to improved...

Family mealtime need not be an everyday occurrence—life is busy—but when you can make it happen, make the most of it!    1. Bond by telling...

Positive Parenting: Alternatives to “No”

When it comes to parenting young children, it can be easy to fall into the habit of using the words “no” and “don’t” on repeat. Children, after all, do a lot of things we don’t want them to do—drawing on walls, for instance, or going for a ride on the family dog. Using “no” as the sole approach to communicating boundaries and limits can lead to frustration for all. Hearing a regular chorus of “no” and “don’t” can leave children feeling frustrated with themselves and the adult who is trying to manage their behaviour. However, sometimes parents...
