Does The Amber Teething Necklace Comfort Your Child? ( Momimhar posted on January 25th, 2016 )

Baltic Teething Beads Necklace For Infants

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace For Infants

I wish I learned about this Baltic Amber Teething Necklace five years ago. I just found out about it when one of my friends who had a new baby few months ago bought one of these for her little girl.  It says it soothes an infant’s teething discomfort just by wearing the necklace or wearing it as a bracelet.  The natural succinic acid contained on the amber helps sooth the discomfort of teething.  But how?

I thought the baby has to stick the necklace in the mouth like the other teethers to sooth the swelling gums, but NO.  Silly me.  It doesn’t work like that.  The amber works wonders, I think.  Any how, this is an ideal gift for Christening and souvenir, too.

Remember that using this product should be under adult supervision.  Never let baby sleep with this necklace on.

How about you?  Did you or someone you know have used or are using Baltic Amber Teething Necklace for their teething babies?

Baby Proofing Your Home: Simple Tricks You Can Do Today ( Momimhar posted on January 12th, 2016 )

Your home may seem safe to you, but it is likely a dangerous place for babies. That is why baby proofing is an important step that parents of all experience should take. Unfortunately, some people don’t get their home ready for a baby because they think it takes too much time and money. This just simply isn’t true. In fact, below are a few simple tricks that you can do today to baby proof your home.

Invest in Finger Shields

Finger shield safety products are these nifty little devices that help prevent a child from getting their fingers pinched or shut in the door. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install, which means there is really no reason not to have them on all doors in your home.

Use Wash Cloths

That’s right, I said wash cloths. These versatile pieces of fabric are not only for keeping clean, they can help keep doors closed while still allowing babies to turn the door knob. All you have to do is, while closing the door, position a wash cloth between the door frame and the door. Make sure it is on the same side that the door handle is on. You should be able to fully close the door while the wash cloth stays in position. You should test the door a few times by turning the handle and trying to open the door. When you want to open the door, simply pinch the wash cloth tight while you open the door.

Prevent Doors from Slamming Shut

You can easily and quickly use a bit of masking tape and an old towel to keep doors from slamming shut. While this method may not be the most eye pleasing, it is a great alternative for parents on a budget. To start, you will need to position a towel at the top of the door. The towel should be closer to the side with the hinges. You want the door to close most of the way while still staying ajar enough so that fingers cannot be squashed. If you notice that the door is staying open too wide, simply move the towel located at the top of the door further along. You can also cut the towel as needed if it hangs down too low.  Secure the towels corner to the door by adding a bit of masking tape.

Sounds very clever, isn’t it? Baby-proofing made easy and worry-free, yes?

National Night Out Promotes Year-Round Community Safety Awareness ( Momimhar posted on October 7th, 2015 )

“I had so much fun!” K told me when we were in the car pulling out of the Baptist Church parking lot last night.  We went to town for the 2015 National Night Out celebration.  National Night Out is an annual event uniquely designed to promote year-round crime prevention, strengthen the police-community cooperation against crime, and build strong community safety awareness.  Sponsors gave reading materials for everyone to read and small favors for everybody, too.

As soon as we got there at the Olde City Park in Downtown Wylie, where the event was holding, I let K try riding on the pony. I saw it has a long line so we started there because they might load the ponies back to their trailers when it gets dark.  K enjoyed the ride.  She said it was her favorite part in the event.  Next she got to pet the goats and the sheep.  She liked that so much that she went there and fed them after a while again.  K was happy to know that there was a mini-petting zoo because she enjoyed petting the goats last year.

I enjoy these kinds of community events.  There is people interaction and learning.  There are fun activities for kids and adults include:

  • bounce house
  • games in every booth
  • face painting
  • petting zoo
  • fire trucks
  • K9 Demo
  • SWAT Team
  • free food
  • music
  • pony rides
  • fireworks
