Now a good pair of white shoes will always work. And the best part is they will go with every other outfit in her wardrobe too.
But, if it’s red you’re after, then we have the most to-die-for pair of Cons that are guaranteed to make those Santa photos sparkle. And we mean sparkle!
Santa photos won’t be the same again!
Step aside Kmart, we’ve got you covered.
As a parent, the trusty baby wipe is right up there with nappies when it comes to baby staples. You literally can’t get past day 1 without them. There’s not a modern day butt that hasn’t been given the baby wipe treatment. Interestingly though, wet wipes in their basic form were only invented in the 1950’s. Side note, I am now wondering what they used before then. Thank goodness we don’t need to worry about that!
One thing you will notice though, by the end of the nappy stage, you will have a packet of baby wipes in every bag and car you own and one in almost every room of your house. Because like tupperware containers, you buy another pack just in case.
How many fights do you have with your kids just to get them to put their shoes on. And then keep them on! My kids were always stalling when it came time to get ready to go out. It’s amazing how busy a kid can get all of a sudden when it comes time to putting their shoes on!
Challenge accepted. Win the battle and the war with Skechers kids shoes.
It’s warming up, the sun is out and the kids are hanging to get outside and play or go to the beach. Cue the sudden thought that you have to buy new summer sandals for the kids.
In most parts of Australia, summer can get quite hot and for the most part the kids end up in bare feet or sandals. Sandal shopping for kids can have its challenges. There are so many styles, which pair do you choose and why?
Let’s break it down so you get the right pair of summer shoes first up.
Teaching kids how to tie shoelaces can be a frustrating time for both parents and kids. It's one of those tasks that just doesn't seem to come naturally. Throw in the need for coordination and focus and it can all become a little too hard.
The thing to remember is you don’t want to scare your child away from learning how to tie their shoelaces. Starting the learning process too early can have adverse effects. You may not get your end result of a perfect bow and your child may become scared to try again. Confidence wavers in kids and they can lose it a lot quicker than adults can.
There is something soothing and mesmerising about precious little baby feet. Those cute chubby toes and small perfect feet that we want to frame forever. But what if their perfect little feet were in pain?
Unfortunately, babies can’t tell us if their feet hurt or if their shoes are too tight. We have to do the thinking and feeling for them. Luckily they are just so darn cute that caring for baby feet is one of those jobs as a Mum you’ll actually look forward to!
Birthday parties are just a part of growing up as a kid. And as a parent, they are just a part of being a parent!
Love them or loathe them, each year you have to gear yourself up for another day of kids, gimmicks and baking. Throw in there a themed party and it becomes all sorts of fun.
These days, themed birthday parties can get quite expensive, especially if your child is into one of the “hot flavour of the month” themes. You know the ones - Frozen, Peppa Pig, Unicorns and Fairies, Minions or Paw Patrol!
I remember those early days of motherhood – struggling to cope with sleep deprivation and working out this breastfeeding thing! One particular memory that stands out is how ravenous I would often be, especially in the middle of the night. I always struggled to make good choices about what to eat at those times. Cookies and biscuits were often my solution (let’s face it, anything you can eat with one hand is good, right?). How I wish I had known about the easy breastfeeding snack that can be GOOD for you plus promote your milk production – lactation cookies! These cookies usually contain galactagogues, which are milk-boosting agents.
Recently there has been an explosion in the market for products aimed at breastfeeding – from feeding cushions and chairs to breast massagers and pumps. But it’s the food products like teas and cookies where you need to do your research and make sure that what you are eating is not a sugar-filled over-priced cookie with no lactation benefits!
