Fitted sheet at the beach:

This is by far one of the most genius mom hacks I’ve ever seen. Next time you want to take your kids to the beach, grab a fitted sheet and place the sheet upside down and put some full bags at each corner to keep the sheets up. Now your baby has a space to play that’s sand-free. Genius. Pure genius. Credit: TeamJohnson.

Command hook on the back of the highchair:

You have 10 bibs and 1 highchair, what do you do? Grab one of those removable command hooks you always buy during the holidays and stick it to the back of the highchair and you’ll have built in bib storage. Ta-da! Credit: barangbabycantik

Stickers in the shoes to help with Left/Right shoe: 

If your kids are still having a hard time figuring out the left shoe from the right, you can cut a medium size sticker in half and put one in each shoe to help them figure it out.

Plastic to-go containers as pacifier holders:

You know those little plastic containers that restaurants put sauce in for take-outs? Next time ask for a few empty ones and use them as pacifier storage. You can throw it in your diaper bag and they’ll stay clean and sterile until ready to use. Credit: OneCrazyHouse

Cupcake holder on the bottom of a popsicle:

Kids love popsicles, but they (generally) hate having sticky hands. You can avoid the whole thing (and a small meltdown) by putting a clean cupcake cup on the base of the popsicle. You’re welcome! Credit: Pinterest

Hot glue gun on the bottom of bath toys: 

Cleaning bath toys can be such a hassle, especially when those cars and ducks get water in them and suddenly start smelling funky. Avoid getting trapped water in bath toys, which can lead to mold, by adding some hot glue to the opening to avoid getting water in there. Credit: WeLoveBeingMoms

Bathing in a laundry basket: 

Another genius mom hack! Bathing your child in a laundry basket is a great idea because it limits how much space they have in the bath (which keeps them safe), and added bonus: their toys will be within reach. Never leave your baby in the bath unattended. Credit: Lifehacker

Use toothpaste to help get sharpie markers off of wood:

Here’s how:

  1. Take a bit of regular toothpaste (avoid the gel kind).
  2. Apply the toothpaste directly onto the marker stain.
  3. Rub the toothpaste using a damp rag. You’ll want to rub the affected area for a few minutes until the cloth can easily slide across the wood surface.
  4. Rinse the rag you used with water and rub the wood surface until the toothpaste is no longer visible.

Use tape to prevent your kids from locking themselves in their room:

Accidents happen, doors get locked, toddlers cry, parents panic. Avoid the drama by using painters tape to prevent that from happening. Such an easy solution. Credit: TheMaven

Layer sheets and mattress pads for bed wetting accidents: 

Bed wetting accidents are bound to happen, but you can avoid having to change and wash sheets in the middle of the night with this simple hack: layer cleans sheets with mattress pads. I did this with my son when he was an infant and would have throw up/spit up incidents when he was sick and it just made it so much easier for everyone.

Why is Swaddling So Important?

Swaddling is super important because it makes babies feel safe and cozy, just like they were in mommy's tummy. It helps them sleep better by preventing startle reflex and keeps them warm without overheating. Swaddling is like giving them a gentle hug that calms and comforts them. But remember, make sure to swaddle correctly, leaving room for their little legs and hips to move freely.
