It is possible for children to reach adulthood without ever experiencing tooth decay. But  to ensure this, good oral health should begin in infancy. Parents must provide this care in their  child’s early years. Later, parents will need to instruct, monitor and motivate the children to maintain good oral health habits.

So, even if  your toddler is ‘sleeping through’ the fact is that he is probably waking up at least 4 – 5 times a night.  Most of the time he will simply stir, turn over or call out, but will be able to go back to sleep. Parenting Advice, Say Hello, Baby Care, Keep It Cleaner, Activities For Kids, Children, Young Children, Parenting Tips, Boys

Potty training isn’t the easiest thing to do, but for the most part it runs fairly smoothly – a couple of accidents here and there, a bit of frustration, many hours of potty entertainment, and eventual mastery.

Sardines are so crucial to your child’s development, that little tins of the stuff should be included in the baby gift bags that the hospital sends you home with. There are some aspects of motherhood that truly embody the concept of self-sacrifice.

"Yesterday I started a baby massage class. I was disappointed to find out that it would be me massaging my baby, and not the other way round. Surely I deserve a little bit of deep tissue love? It should be payback for never having any time for myself. Carter’s going through a growth spurt (well, that’s what the books say, as apparently ‘possessed by demons’ isn’t appropriate).

It’s only until you have this tiny, helpless infant in your arms that you think to yourself ‘so, now what?”. I think I spent my entire pregnancy in denial - under a false illusion that once baby was here I would know exactly what to do, and that everything would magically fall into place. Except, it didn’t.
