Sink

Your sink sees a lot of use every day. All the washing up and rinsing off that goes on every day in your sink means that your sink could be the dirtiest spot in your home.  Your sink could be harboring more germs than your toilet. That’s why the sink deserves a thorough clean regularly to keep it free from germs and other bacteria. Keeping your sink in a pristine condition allows you to prevent foodborne diseases, take the hassle out of food preparation, and extend the life of your sink. Fortunately, cleaning your sink doesn’t have to be difficult. All you need is a mild cleanser like baking soda and vinegar and a scrub brush.

Choose the Appropriate Safety Seat

After checking to make sure all your seat belts are working, make sure that everyone who is travelling with you, especially your children, uses the appropriate car seat for their age. It would be best if you had boosters for older  children and car seats for babies, which should be rear-facing inside the car. Most countries are now implementing comprehensive guidelines for car seats that meet their specifications so make sure to choose the right one for your vehicle and your children.

Be Familiar With The Car Seat Manual

Every children’s car seat comes with a manual, giving information on how to use it properly. Car seats have many variations, depending on your kid’s age and size. The manual will also show how to install the belts properly, to ensure the proper anchorage and prevent any accidents that might happen.

How Can You Control Pests Naturally?

Living out in “the country” as we do, we’ve run into a great many more “pests” than we ever encountered in our previous cookie-cutter neighborhood. We expected this, of course. But we’ve had to be creative about how we control pests in our area. First and foremost, because safety is a big deal to us. We have pets and kids and we grow things that we eat, so we don’t just want to be destroying our property in order to keep the pests out.

My sweet cousin is getting ready to have her first baby. Not only am I super excited for the baby, but I also love that fall is one of the best times of the year to welcome your new bundle of joy into the world! The weather is not too hot, and in some cases not too cold (if it’s not snowing yet). But the best part of having a fall baby is that you get to kick off the holiday season with your new addition — starting with Halloween. The thought of shopping for your little one’s first Halloween costume can be so exciting.

Swaddle blankets

Because the temperature only drops at night, using a really cozy swaddle blanket for day naps is more than enough. Baby Tula baby blankets are made with 100% viscose from bamboo, making them cozy but also breathable. The pulp from the bamboo also makes these blankets plump with softness. Make sure you have plenty of swaddle blankets to provide the most comfort and warmth for your baby so you don’t have to worry about layering them with a ton of clothing. 

Wipe warmer

For those changes in the middle of the night, your baby is going to love the fact that their wipes aren’t freezing cold from being taken straight out of the package. There’s nothing worse than a cold touch after being snuggled up. Keep the crying to a minimum and remember to keep the warmer stocked up and plugged in. It’s also a lot quieter too when pulling a wipe from this device instead of from a crinkling package.
