And we are often doing so on very little sleep, leaving us too tired to mom.

Electric toothbrushes are quickly replacing the standard toothbrush in many homes as consumers fall in love with the fresh, deep-clean feeling of a strong motor versus their own arm power. It’s true, studies show that electric toothbrushes do clean your teeth, gums, and tongue better than the typical toothbrush, while also encouraging consumers to brush their teeth for a longer period of time than one normally would. And just when we thought electric toothbrushes couldn’t get any better, FOREO ISSA came along and created a game changer in oral health care for both adults and kids.

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.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Magnet Schools

When you have kids, you don’t realize exactly how many decisions you have to make just by the time they’re 5 or 6 years old (let’s not even talk about how many decisions you have to make by the time they’re adults and start making decisions for themselves!). It starts with the brand of diapers to use and breastfeeding versus bottle feeding and doesn’t stop. Before you realize it, you have to decide on where to enroll them in school. For most families, the days where there’s only one elementary school in town are over. Most of us have a slew of choices when it comes to schools – from traditional public schools to magnet schools, charter schools, and private schools. And there’s also the option of home schooling.

One great option in the public school system is a magnet school. You may not have considered a magnet school. You may not know what they are or whether they even exist in your area. They’re not offered in every school district, but if you’re lucky enough to have magnet schools in the mix, they’re definitely not an option to overlook.
