Baby Wipes Are For Much More Than Nappy Changes

From cleaning little hands and faces on the go, to spilt milk in the car, I still have a pack of baby wipes in my car and I haven't had a baby for a few years now. They are gentle on skin and surprisingly great at cleaning up messes at home and on the go!

No more washing multiple cups a day.

Get each child a different coloured cup. Have them use the same cup each day and set it on the counter so it will be there ready and waiting for when they are thirsty again. Then wash it each night before bed.

Organise Your Car For Greater Efficiency

Keep the car organised and everything your child needs accessible. Tie a shoe organiser to the back of your seat and fill the pockets with sippy cups, snacks, toys, colouring books or any other car essentials.

Scare away the monsters

If your child is worried about the monsters that may be hiding under the bed or in the cupboard, make a monster spray. Take an empty spray bottle and label it "Monsters 'Go Away' Spray." (You can creatively decorate it too for an added touch.) Fill with water and a few drops of Lavender oil. Let your child, spray the "Monster repellent" anywhere they think the monsters may be hiding.

Use A Permanent Marker For Safety

If you have a "wanderer" use a permanent marker to write your name on their arm when you are at a theme park. It won't wash off immediately and if your child gets lost, they can easily call you on your mobile phone. This will also help children remember your phone number if they ever get lost or separated from you.

Use your float

Foam pool floats are not just for pool fun. There are quite a few creative ways to put them to work in your home to make your life easier.
  • Cut a 6 inch piece of the float off and slit it down one side. Wrap it around the door frame to keep doors from slamming. 
  • Protect your kids from the springs in your trampoline. Cut the float to size and wrap it around each spring. No more fingers caught in those nasty springs.
  • If your child has a tendency to roll out of bed, slide a pool float under the fitted sheet to act as a bumper when they try to roll out of bed.
