Now that Lennox has started preschool, colds are going to be even more prevalent in our household. That's why I have a lot of research on the best home and store-bought remedies, and I would like to share some of those with you today. I love hearing new ideas, so please make sure you share your cold remedies or hacks in the comments below so I can add your idea to this post!
All children are different. Some children absolutely disguise water. My five-year-old nephew, for example, has always hated getting his head wet until recently, and I know for sure my SIL has always exposed him to lots of water activities. Regardless, I do recommend implementing an entertaining and sensory routine for your baby right out of the womb. This way, bathtime will be perceived as an exciting activity instead of a necessary task.
I couldn’t bear to watch my little boy in a permanent uncomfortable state from all the scratching. So, I did a lot of research, changed our routine, and bought new products to help alleviate our little man’s Eczema. Here is what I found out, and what has helped Lennox the most.
Well, we’re back at it! Lennox must be getting his last set of molars, or so I hope they’re the final set. The drooling, multiple night wake ups and fussiness is back! I thought it would be appropriate to send off our terrible teething times with a list of # natural remedies to alleviate infant and toddler teething pain.
Nonetheless, we have narrowed pacifier use to naptime, and bedtime. At night, Lennox asks to be put into his crib ready to love all over his Wubbanubs. Nighttime pacifier use is something we are prepared to break after he turns two.
Lennox, and I obviously have a strong attachment to his pacis, so I wanted to mention the pros and cons of infant and toddler pacifier use.
Your toddler seemed perfectly fine two hours ago. Now all the sudden he’s throwing up what looks like her whole day’s food. What could be going on? Did she eat something bad?
He might have Viral Gastroenteritis, AKA the stomach flu.
How do you know if your baby has reflux? In my case, for instance, ever since I brought Lennox home from the hospital, his spit up became my new perfume. It was non-stop and it wasn’t necessarily after a feeding either. Sometimes he would wake up from a nap and immediately spit up. It got to the point where I always draped a receiving blanket over top of me every time I was holding him. Read more here.
It’s these times like tonight where I put Lennox to bed at 8 and he was up crying by 10 that I have to remember that Lennox is a sensitive sleeper. Regardless of what might be the reason waking him up; teeth, overstimulation, fever etc., I have to stick to my basics.
Below are some important tips to follow to help your sensitive sleeper sleep better.
