Why your Baby or Toddler Wakes up Early and What to do About it.

Why your Baby or Toddler Wakes up Early and What to do About it.

Is your baby or toddler an early bird? Not only are chronic early morning wakings frustrating and exhausting for parents, but if your baby is regularly waking before 6:00 AM and getting fewer than 11 hours of overnight sleep, he is likely missing out on a valuable hour of deep, restorative sleep! …

🌸Happy Monday!! We hope all the momma’s had a fun, relaxing and memorable Mother’s Day! 💛 ...

🌸🐰Fun Easter Treat Alert!!!🐰🌸

Since our Rice Krispie nests were such a hit last Easter, we wanted to share them with you again - but with a twist.

This recipe is just as fun and cute, but this time, the nests are made out of shortbread!

Using your favourite shortbread recipe and candy-shelled chocolate eggs, these yummy cookies are a perfect way to start off the Easter festivities.

🌸Notes:

🌷Roll shortbread dough into balls and then place them on a cookie sheet to bake. Do not press them down.
🌷Wait 2-3 minutes after they come out of the oven before pressing eggs on or the eggs will crack from the heat of the cookies.

Happy Baking!!! 🐰🌸

✨Sensory bags are great fun for your baby or toddler!✨

Here are a few ideas that your little ones will LOVE!

❣️Items Needed:

🔹Water, oil, glitter and/or food colouring
🔹Shaving cream
🔹 dots of food colouring
🔹Water and frozen peas
🔹Piece of paper (small size), dots of paints (makes super cute art made by your baby or toddler with no mess)

❣️Tips:

🔹Put on window, wall, high chair or ground!
🔹You can use any sized bag, just fill ¼ of the bag with liquid to avoid it being full enough to ‘burst’
🔹Tape the opening shut to ensure nothing comes out

❣️Why they are so great:

🔹Helps to develop sense of touch
🔹Fine motor skills if bags have small objects in them that can be moved around
🔹Lower on the wall or window helps your baby with sitting
🔹Higher on the wall or window helps your baby stand
🔹On the ground is great for tummy time
🔹You can put multiple in a row to help promote crawling
