Buy your­self pre­cious time

Townsville Bulletin - - About a Baby -

Any tips on toi­let train­ing? What is a good age to start?? Ev­ery few days I make an ef­fort to get up b4 my 2yo. Even 20min ear­lier ( 6am) means I have tme 4 a cof­fee/ toast in peace. The rest of the day feels much more peace­ful as a re­sult! Kay, BushieBeach Great gift idea: I bght my 2 grand­chil­dren lit­tle blan­kets with their names and birth­dates wo­ven on. They carry these blankies with them all the time. I love it. ProudGran Let friends know that you wel­come hand-medowns and you’ll be blessed with all sorts of great stuff! I was and thank all my friends for all they gave me af­ter my twins were born. Sam& Sara’smummy Make sure you buy the eas­i­est-to-clean high chair. Don’t buy those fancy ones with all the foam cov­er­ing. Jane, bush­land beach When my four-month-old was con­sti­pated I gave me a dash of prune juice in some wa­ter. My nana used it on my mum and it worked then and it worked for me. MN I find my fussy tod­dler likes to eat lightly mi­crowaved veg­gies but turns his head when I served pureed veg­gies. Un­ex­plain­able but worth a try. Pam When my 3mo had colic I feed her small amounts, more fre­quently. Worked within days, I now have a happy 4-m-o. toniN Know us mums won’t be aread­ing a novel any time soon, but my aunt gave me a book filled with short sto­ries-per­fect! Thanks Aunt Em­mie When la­bel­ing clothes, only use your sur­name so they can be handed down to younger si­b­lings. Mu­mof3boys, Nome 2 soothe skin ir­ri­ta­tions, help re­lieve nappy rash, add 2 ta­ble­spoons of bi­car­bon­ate of soda to yr bub’s bath wa­ter. Works a treat. Con­nie, Mund­ing­burra I use a travel mug for my cof­fee around the house. It keeps my cof­fee hot when I get in­ter­rupted ( al­ways) & best of all it’s safer around my tod­dler. Nerida Af­ter I gave birth I made sure I only used the soft­est, most lux­u­ri­ous toi­let pa­per money could buy!! MB, 4817 When it came to the tran­si­tion from sippy cup to adult cup the fam­ily had a ‘‘ bye-bye’’ sippy cup cer­e­mony which in­cluded a milk­shake!. My 2.5yo now loves to drink from her ‘’ big peo­ple’’ cup. theTrip­pet­fam­ily
