Breast Milk applied to the affected are will clear up diaper
rash. Also works for earaches and "gummy" eyes.
Entertain baby in the kitchen by filling the bottom drawer
in the kitche with safe plastic containers, kitchen toosl like
whisks, spatulas, wooden spoons, pot lids and other safe kitchen
things. Baby will love to open and close this "special drawer"
taking the things out and putting them back in. It may even
give mother the time to get kitchen work done.
EASY NURSING SHIRT:
Layer one crop top, blouse, shirt, etc. over an old T-shirt
or tank top (mix or match colors!). Cut two nursing slits in
the T-shirt and hem edges. The top layer shirt will provide
discreet coverage, yet your baby will still have easy access.
NURSERY BOOK ENDS:
Make book-ends out of stuffed animals. Undo the back,
take out some stuffing and fill the marbles; re-sew by hand.
To prevent sliding, glue some rubber matting on the bottom of the
toy. This works great for matching the decor in the baby's
TRAVEL BED FOR BABY:
Bring along a small inflatable plastic wading pool and line
it with blankets for a non-mobiel baby to sleep in. When used on top
of a regular bed, your baby won't be able to roll off. NOt
only are the sides nicely cushioned, but the waterproof bottom will
protect the bed from leaking diapers or spit up. The deflated
pool will take very little room inside your diaper bag, and you'll
always have a safe place for your baby to sleep!
Bolt your dressers, bookshelves or any other furniture.
Secure to the floor with L-braces or to the wall with hook and eyes.
