You might be struggling to do this two and its obvious that most moms are not aware on how to put their babies to sleep without so much struggle. It is very easy. Here are some tips that will help you out through the day so you don’t become a slave to your little one.

  • Ensure that the room they are sleeping in is warm enough and not too warm
  • Never get used to carrying the baby while he or she is awake always put them down so they get used to picking a nap on their own.

New GRACO Extend2FIT convertible Review – 2016

New GRACO Extend2FIT convertible Review – 2016

Graco! Graco! They did it again. Graco raises the bar once again and this time everyone who was at the ABC Kids expo in Vegas will tell you just how the GRACO Extend2FIT convertible seat rocked the day.

Important Points to Remember:

Here are some points to note:

The Academy of pediatrics does recommend that you keep your baby facing the rear until age 2 years when it is deemed OKAY. I mean Like indicated in the picture above.

Letting your child’s legs bend while facing the rear may not be such a comfortable idea, but Graco has addressed
this major concern with a smarty designed extend-to-fit the legs car seat.

Placing your child in the rear-facing position, calls for giving your child some additional leg room which wasnt the norm with most of the rear facing car seats.

This is one of the NEWEST inventions in car seats and it is become official.
The rear facing height limit is somewhat 45″ and approx. 49″ while forward facing.

This Car seat was one of the most anticipated car seats in the last years expo. And girl.. it ROCKED!!

Going by the design, one can overthink over the extend2fit’s ability to consume less amount of seating area. The car seat actually came through on the test and we can confirm that the roundest Tom, Dick or Harry will sit comfortably in the front seat.
This is a standard convertible seat without a boost mode.

How it Works

Gracoextend2fit car seatVisualizing how the extension will create additional legroom when installed
may be a little confusing.

– First look at the picture above.
– Extend the base a bit further back when the tray is extended and you are good to start using it.

 

Features and Pros

graco convertible car seat extend2fit-label

 

  • Approx 5″ of extra legroom. Dope!!
  • 6 Super swift recline positions
  • Multiple headrest positions, approximately 10 of them.
  • It can easily be cleaned up(Machine washable cover) just like other car seats except the harness
    where you need to do some hand-washing with a piece of clothing.
  • Premium Push-on LATCH connectors.
  • The seat was crash tested and shouldn’t be much of a worry on both front and rear impacts.
  • 10 years lifespan before expiry.
  • Steel reinforced frame for better safety to the child in case of a crash.

Cons

  • Graco did have a major fix late last year such that they had to do a recall. That was somewhere around November 2015 and January 2016. Actually, it was the labels that failed in indicating recline positions clearly in a readable language english/spanish. This drawback on the car seat brand has since been fixed.

 

Conclusion and Things to Note

Check the manufacture date, model number and make sure that the recline labels languages are correct and matching on both sides (All Spanish on one side and all English on the other side).

To check, Look at the white label on the bottom of the car seat to. .

I know you may be a little hesitant to get something that just came out this year.
Nevertheless, this is one of the best car seats to hit the stores EVER!!!

Even these regular baby sittings moms will tell you that the car seat technicians super amazed by the car seat.

If you got a Newborn, a 2 year old or a 3 year old. Kudos!! This is the car seat to Install this year.

It is Never well played until you get it from the manufacturers mouth. We went all the way to request a
detailed Manual for you. so you can hear it from the horses mouth on its top notch quality.
Remember!! The Blue color seems to be doing it for most parents out there, you may want to go with a different
color though , Black and Grey colors are also available.

The car seat is indeed outmatches the Safety 1st 50-lb Advance EX 65 Air+

Don’t Forget to Read This! Why Rear-facing early isn’t such a BAD idea after all

And oh! Get it from the trusted online places like amazon, target and BB.

All About Baby Gates

Choosing the right baby gate

Baby gates are gates used to block off a child from potentially dangerous areas around the house. Parenting practices need a total peace of mind and it’s always better to take precautions before facing some of the worst experiences at home concerning baby’s safety,it is therefore very important to create a safe environment for your little one to explore as he or she begins to become mobile and wants to explore and discover every area around the house.

funny baby gate

It is not only essential to have safety gates where there are stairs,but  also places considered unsafe for your toddler to visit,like one can have a baby gate at the kitchen area to prevent a child from going in. Generally most children start crawling as early as seven or eight months and as a parent you need to be on the guard when your little one starts crawling.

baby gate out the stairs

Baby gates are normally designed in wood or metal material,so its you to choose one that suites your home decor. Here are some of the things you need to take before getting the right baby gate gate.

  • First you need to measure the door way before purchasing one as you may buy a gate that is either wide or narrow to fit.
  • Avoid the diamond shaped spacing kind of gate.
  • Ensure that the gate got very narrow gaps in between not more than 1 1\2 inches across ,as baby’s head might get trapped in a larger gap.
  • Test the baby gate first if it opens and closes easily even with one hand as sometimes you may be holding the baby with the other hand.
  • Make sure you purchase a gate that has no horizontal slats that will or might make it easy for a child to climb up.
  • Look out for sharp points or edges.
  • Watch out for detachable parts that might cause chocking.

All about baby gate at the stairs

There are risks of not having a stair gate at home.

  • When mounting a stair gate,ensure the gate opens towards you.
  • It is advisable to use hardware mounted gates that are screwed to the wall  majorly at the top.
  • Put away anything the baby can use to climb over the gate,you don’t want to send your child sprawling down the unfriendly stairs.
  • How sure are you that your baby does not need a safety gate anymore? Keep the gates up until you are sure the baby can walk up and down the stairs safely.
  • Never choose a gate just because you think it matches your interior house design,go for quality.
  • Have a very tall gate higher than the baby at the top of the stairs to prevent the baby from attempting to climb.

Types of  Baby Gates

Pressure mounted gates

pressure mouted baby gate

This is also known as expandable gates. This kind of gate don’t require the use of hardware to assemble or install,instead it requires just a flat surface against the wall to press. The good thing about this gate is that it is portable and you can use it where you feel necessary provided you install it right. Pressure mounted baby gates should never be used on top of the stairs since sometimes baby’s weight might be too much  on it when pushed or leaned on which could cause serious falls.

Hardware mounted gates

hardware mounted gate

Generally this type of gate is the safest to use especially at the top of the stairs because it is normally screwed into the wall or into a door frame that makes it very sturdy. You can have this installed both at the top and at the bottom of the stairs since its very much stable compared to the expandable.

Barrier Gates

barrier gste

These are more like pressure gates,since they are also portable,the only difference is that they don’t have a door. They are normally used to block off an area or room completely that is not frequently used. They too are very easy to assemble and move around.

Important

As much as you may a few stairs or even a single step in your house,it is advisable to child proof them for your little one’s sake.
Never rely on a baby gate to think that you child is safe up or down there,always be on the look for direct supervision to keep your child safe,and as soon as your child has an idea of how to go up and down the stairs and be able to open the gate,remove them. Always take the right precautions.

keeping Safety at Home for the Baby

keeping safety at home for the baby

Babies are one of the most precious gifts to have in life and one thing for sure is that nobody ever wants his or her child to get hurt in any way or the other,and as they grow they too want to explore,know how things are done and mostly try to do exactly what everyone does,therefore they need so much care and protection from a lot of things around the home and also maintaining safety in the rooms around the house.

How to keep the kitchen safe

The kitchen is one of the most unsafest places in the house that you wouldn’t like your child visiting. Here are some of the precautions needed to ensure your baby’s safety around this place.

kitchen proofing baby

  • You can opt for a gated kitchen so that baby does not disturb you while cooking.
  • Never leave the sharp utensils at baby’s disposal,you don’t want your baby getting playful with them which might cause serious cuts.
  • Keep the kitchen cabinets locked always. Children love to hang onto them which might also break down and make them fall hence serious injuries.
  • Make sure you have a lockable trash can/dustbin or keep them locked inside a drawer away from babies reach. The toddlers are known of picking the little left overs from the trash or grab things from the bin and change to a toy.
  • Be sure to keep away the washing detergents and any chemicals out of baby’s reach.
  • Always make a raise on your cookers to avoid baby trying to switch them on and try to get cooking” like mommy cooks”.
  • Never leave the electrical items like blenders,toasters and gas appliances plugged on to power.
  • Be watchful on where you put or leave hot stuff in the kitchen.
  • Cautiousness is required on how you place those plastic bags you use for shopping because they can easily suffocate a child. Dispose them off the surrounding.

NB:When you need to cook and you are all alone with the baby in the house,learn to keep him or her busy with toys or something so that he or she doesn’t bother you in there.

How to keep the bedroom safe

Here are what to look out for in your baby’s  room and obviously in your room too since he or she wont stop the rounds to your room.

  • The baby’s crib should be well made in that there are no sharp objects pointing out that might harm or cause injury to the child.
  • Changing table or dresser tables must be well fixed to avoid tippling and falling off on/with the baby.
    Never place baby’s toys on high shelves which he or she might try to reach on to and fall.
  • The windows of the room should always be well secured meaning the knobs should be tightly fixed that the baby cant
  • be able to open or rather have grills,window stopper or window guard that cant allow baby fall off the window, and of course allowing some fresh air in the room.
  • Lock all the drawers and cabinets that are used for storage in the room.
  • Investing in a baby monitor is also a safe way to be on the watch so as to know what your baby is up to when you are away from him or her.
  • Maintain cleanliness inside the baby’s room i.e clear off any small objects that are likely to choke.
  • Remember never too\ leave hanging electric wires unguarded/covered using the wire guards.
  • Remove any strings or cords that are hanging which might coil around baby’s neck.

keeping bathroom and bath time safe

baby safety 3

First and foremost the bath room should be a no go zone for your child i.e without an adult. Most moms considers baby’s bath time to be more fun but what they don’t know is that this area is also one of the most dangerous places for a child to be.

  • The bathroom knob or handle should be placed higher than the child’s height so he or she can not reach to.
  • Ensure that the door can be be locked and unlocked from inside and outside.
  • In case there are any appliances like electric shavers and curling iron in your bathroom,always unplug them and ensure that they are well covered and placed out of baby reach to avoid electrocution.
  • Make sure that the soaps,shampoos,moisturizers,conditioners toothpaste,mouthwash, and all other chemicals up in the cabinets and locked.
  • Remember to always empty the bath tab if its not in use,most babies love playing in water but this is very risky since the child can drown.
  • It will take just a few seconds for your baby to get burnt out of that hot water temperature you have set.,therefore the best solution to this is to set the water heater up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit which is 49 degrees Celsius.
  • The sharp objects like razors,scissors and any other sharp object must be kept out of baby’s reach.
  • The bathroom door mat should be non-slippery. A rubber mat is cool for this area.

after bath doo mat2

  • Make sure that the waterlogged door mats and towels are cleaned and aired.
  • The trash can in your bathroom contains all sorts of dirt and you don’t want your child trying to figure out what’s in there on her own,so it is advisable to use a lockable trash can.
  • Find a way to allow air circulation into the bathroom to let out moist and avoid suffocation.
  • Lastly always keep the bathroom clean and disinfected.

General childproofing tips at home.

  • Never leave your baby unattended to no matter what!be it on a changing table or  on any raised surface,a door bell ring,always take your baby with you.
  • All medicines should be kept out of baby’s reach.
  • Buy toys that suits your child’s age,to avoid unnecessary chocking and injuries too small and sharp edged toys are very risky.
  • Always keep the house neat and disinfected to prevent bacterial infections to your child.
  • Make sure you have a first aid box with you in the house in case the child gets into any accident.
  • Use safety gates for the staircase in case the baby wakes up and  goes out of the room to look for someones attention,its better to find the gate closed than “roll down”the stairs.

Well, its better to take preventive measures than curative,therefore don’t be left out on what to do to childproof your home off the dangers.

Newborn Baby Bath Time

How to give a bath to a newborn baby

1T BATH

Generally it gets so frightening for most moms especially first time moms to bath their young ones for the first time. Well,bathing a baby is a no difficult task,some moms think that bathing the baby frequently will keep their skin dry,no it also depends on the type of soap or lotion one uses to bath the baby.

For the first few weeks,the baby’s umblicol cord is the most sensitive part on the body and you ought to be careful when bathing the baby.

Here are the requirements needed to bath the baby

  • A bath tab
  • warm water(not hot)
  • Cotton wool and a clean soft wash cloth
  • A mild soap
  • A warm towel and blanket to keep baby warm after the bath
  • Baby oil/lotion
  • Change of clothes and a clean diaper
    NB; Remember never to leave the baby unattended to,if you have to grab or get something go with the baby.

Steps to follow when giving baby a bath

Diapering

Diapers: Never leave the house without diapers. Have extras because you never know how many changes you are going to make throughout the short outing.
Wet bag/Plastic bag: Have a zippable bag that you put used diapers and another that you use to keep wet clothes and bibs.
Don’t forget to bring along the diaper rash cream to protect the baby from rashes during diapering.
Wipes: You will use these to wipe baby when changing him or her and can come in handy when wiping spills plus its a quick clean up for hands.
Light changing pad: That fits well in the bag without taking much space.
