The swaddle. It’s been a common practice among parents for hundreds of years, but since the semi-recent changes in sleep recommendations for babies, it’s become even more popular. When experts and doctors alike started the back to sleep initiative in the 1990’s, parents went back to the age old tradition of wrapping babies tightly in hopes of getting some shut eye.

BottomZz Up: An Eco-Friendly Way to Potty Train

Potty training is one of those important milestones that every parent both dreads and loves at the same time. It can be exciting to finally get rid of diapers, but the prospect of spending days, or even months, cleaning up pee from your floors and your carpets can make any parent feel anxious. And many times things like pull-ups can make it more difficult for a child to learn to potty train because they are too much like diapers. Luckily there is a product getting ready to launch via Kickstarter that helps parents potty train their children in record time without the confusion between diapers and underwear. BottomZz Up is a potty training tool-kit designed to help children feel the wetness when they have an accident all while protecting against leaks.

FOREO ISSA mikro Reviewed: Swedish-designed Sonic Baby Toothbrush

ISSA mikro baby electric toothbrush in use by my toddler

We all know how important oral hygiene is for our little ones, and the earlier we start taking care of our babies’ gums and teeth, the better the chance we have of building healthy dental habits when they’re bigger. Even before those first tiny teeth break through the gums, dentists encourage parents to clean baby’s gums after each feeding. Our only options for doing so have been a wet washcloth or one of those silicone infant toothbrushes that you wear on your fingertip, and once teeth start breaking through, finding a super soft toothbrush that cleans gently enough not to irritate those sensitive gums can be quite the task. But FOREO from Sweden wants to make it easy on us parents with their ISSA mikro sonic baby toothbrush, specifically designed for the smallest of brushers, from infancy to four years of age.
