I FREEZE FOUR MARSHMALLO­WS TO­GETHER IN A FREEZER BAG SO WHEN MY KIDS FALL OR HURT THEM­SELVES THERE IS A COOL­ING PACK. IT DOESN’T GET AS PAINFULLY COLD AS ICE, IT STARTS GET­TING SOFT ON THEIR SKIN AND THERE IS AL­WAYS A TREAT TO EAT AF­TER­WARDS TO MAKE THEM FEEL BET­TER. Bianca Moses For moms stock­pil­ing breast­milk in the freezer, store the milk bags in a gift bag with a slit in at the bot­tom, so that you can eas­ily ac­cess the old­est ones to use first! Bianca Naudé If you have a picky eater, pack fin­ger foods on a tray and let him eat in his own time – he will most likely eat and play at the same time. Madelien Burg­ers If you are out and about over a meal­time and find you are left with only one bib, use the re­verse side of the bib. It is made of plas­tic so you can clean ac­ci­den­tally spilled food with one easy wipe. Tsholofelo Rasek­gala Be­fore I take my daugh­ter for her im­mu­ni­sa­tions I put a few wet cot­ton balls in the freezer. This works per­fectly as a cold pack for the sore­ness af­ter shots, es­pe­cially in those first few months. Luzelle Janse van Rens­burg TOD­DLERS LIKE TO DELVE INTO YOUR HANDBAG, SO I KEEP AN OLD HANDBAG WITH ODDS & ENDS IN IT THAT ARE NOT VALU­ABLE FOR MY GRAND­CHIL­DREN TO PLAY WITH. Gail Naudé
