Imogen Heap amongst others were drafted in by C&G Baby Club UK to make a song that was scientifically proven to make babies happy. Naturally I assumed that this song is just going to be ‘Painful’ to say the least, but I’m interested if any Daddycated readers would play this song to their kids and let us know if there are any notable (relevant 😉) reactions.
A question facing many parents (especially first timers) is ‘at what age do we change from a cot to a bed?’.
With worries like ‘but he/she wriggles so much all night and will end up falling out of bed’ and ‘I can’t be arsed to convert the cot/buy a bed!’ may make you want to leave the task for a little longer. But the fact is, that you can’t keep them in there for too long. Something needs to be done!
The trouble is, that you are almost guaranteed to get Conjunctivitis if you are fairly new to this world. This is something that not a single soul will tell you, so here’s a short warning on what it is, how to recognise it, what to do and how to deal with it effectively.
It’s the 23th of December, so it’s time to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas!
I sincerely hope you all have a peaceful break from the norm, full of festive cheer and magic for the little ones.
It’s a great time to reflect on how lucky we are to have each other, from our amazing families and close friends to our everyday acquaintances.
Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you haven’t been praying enough to the parenting gods. You work hard, you try your best to inspire and guide your kids towards a bright future that they can control, but at time it can feel like nothing is going right.
Do you want to make an impact with your kids education? Do you want to make learning easier and help them develop a more confident approach in school? Do you want to help develop good attention and listening skills? There’s an answer and it’s not easy, but it’s time to take the bull by the horns.
I saw this on the front page of a rubbish newspaper in the middle of last month and thought I’d share it with you all.
Needless to say, this is complete nonsense in our house. We would have to measure it by the week to get a decent data set even close to comparable to the number of hours stated in the news article.
As for playing online games, they aren’t even touched – or even known about for that matter.
It does make me wonder what kind of glue they are using to stick a child to a screen for 4 hours a day though!
You know the score. It’s time to take the little one to the changing room, or its going to result in an explosive situation. You look down at your ‘mini me’ and you can see they are getting uncomfortable. The thing is you’re out in the middle of town, so you head to the nearest shop/cafe/place you can think of to get baby sorted; except you can’t. Why? No male baby changing facility.
It’s more common than you might think. When you find yourself in this situation you really feel astonished that it’s actually happening. Phrases like “in this day and age?” and “remind me what year is this?!” suddenly spring to mind.
