How To Feed Toddlers

Let Them Eat CAKE!…. Just Kidding….

I want to talk about what, how, and what to use when feeding two babies that might be at different developmental stages, yet still close in age. Our little man is two months older than his little buddy that I babysit 3 days a week. This might not seem like a huge difference, but when they are under a year, it can actually seem like they are on completely different levels. (more…)

Twins Three Days A Week Part 1

What To Do with Two Toddlers

I have twins 3 days out of the week…

I babysit my best friend’s little boy and he is 2 months younger than our lil man (lil man is almost a year old), so it’s like having twins because they pretty much do all the same stuff. I have been doing this for about 3 months now, and want to quickly share with you some ways to keep them safe, keep them entertained, and how I keep myself sane.

First off I would highly recommend following a schedule. Here is an example:

6am – Friend’s boy gets dropped off, maybe takes a short nap or plays.

7am – Lil man gets up, joins in for playtime

8am – Breakfast

9am – Bottle/nurse and naps

11am – Wake up, change diapers, play

12pm – Lunch, playtime

1pm – Bottle/nurse and nap

2:45 – Friend picks up boy. (more…)

Baby Stuff On The CHEAP: Tips For Using Craigslist

Newb Mom here again. It’s no secret that I am the Queen of Craigslist when it comes to buying baby stuff. Babies grow out of everything so quickly that there is always a plethora of stuff available on Craigslist, and typically people price it to move since they just want it gone. Here is an example of some stuff I have gotten and the prices:

  1. Baby Einstein jumper (music doesn’t work but the lights do). Paid $5 – Retails for $100
  2. Activity Table, perfect condition. Paid $15 – Retails for $50
  3. Graco double stroller, older but in excellent condition. Paid $15 – Retails for $125
  4. Step 2 playhouse, missing 2 rails (not really needed). Paid $10 – Retails for $300

So in all I’ve paid under $50 for $575 in baby gear. That’s a savings of $525. Crazy right? All it takes is time to look, some research, some basic safety, and some cleaning up. (more…)
