I love Karen’s gentle hack for encouraging little ones to stay in bed.

You've still got time to get in on Amazon's Pampers and Luvs deal: buy $99 worth of selected Pampers and Luvs products (including diapers, Swaddlers, Cruisers, Easy-Ups, Kandoo wipes, soap, Underjams, and wipes) and get a $20 Amazon gift certificate toward a future purchase (as in, holiday gifts). Offer ends 10/31.
Kerrie sent in this fascinating hack: I have 9 month old twins who seem to have spent more of their lives congested than not. They hate the snot-sucker (even the cool battery operated one!) and I'm always struggling to get their noses clear. The other day as we were headed out the door, they both […]
Simple and smart. From Terrie: With two boys very close in age, we decided early on to "color code" a few items to simplify life and to be able to tell at a glance who the owner is. Son #1 gets blue, green or purple (cool colors), while son #2 gets red, orange, yellow (warm […]
Who knew denture tablets had so many uses? From Sarah: I found the hack to use denture tabs for cleaning toothbrushes and teething toys, but they are also great for cleaning athletic mouth guards, night bite guards for teeth grinders, sippy cup valves, etc. I take a few with me when I travel to quickly […]
Kristine's hack will set you back a few (Star)bucks, but may be worth it: When our son started eating solids, the poop — and therefore the diaper pail — got a lot stinkier. A friend suggested that I dump a bag of whole bean coffee in the bottom of the pail before I put the […]
Here’s what I found in today’s Amazon Friday sale: Like many, my kids are pastaphiles. They will eat any noodle preparation, especially those that are Asian-inspired. Pad thai, udon, lo mein, ramen … it’s all good. I always keep a few Annie Chun’s noodle “kits” in my pantry — they’re great for babysitter-prepared dinners, weekend […]
Maria’s simple craft project would be a great diversion for hungry kids waiting for Thanksgiving dinner.
Amy's come up with a new twist on the annual photo calendar gift: Last year before Christmas, I scanned 12 pieces of my kids' art and uploaded the images to an online photo place (Shutterfly, but you could use any service that does photo gifts). I used the images to make a calendar for the […]
Rachel's juice selection tip saves money and cuts sugar: I try not to give my children much juice, but they do get some daily. I've found it more cost-effective if I buy any brand of white grape-peach juice. The peach is a strong enough flavor that you can dilute it a lot and still have […]
