5 Easy Tips For New Parents #PlaytexEssentials #pmedia #Ad

5 Easy Tips For New Parents #PlaytexEssentias #pmedia #Ad

I remember how difficult it was for me when I had my first baby, it was the most amazing experience and also the most terrified one.
My husband and I didn’t know what to do and sometimes I was just sitting crying because it was to much. Thank God we learned a lot with our first one and when the second one came along we were like experts, all ready and we created the most simple handbook for our fellow friends, getting ready to become parents for the first time.

Today I want to share with you our 5 simple steps on how to keep your baby happy all the time, of course these steps are just our experience but, we actually been very successful with our friends and these recommendations.

Clean Diaper: This is the first step, you need to follow when your baby is crying, checking the baby and making sure it doesn’t need a new diaper. And if for some reason you need to change the dirty diaper let me recommend you the Diaper Genie, this is a great way to keep those stinky friends out of the way, this great product is essential for any new mommy, helps you with the task of keeping odors away and all those diapers in one place. I love it so much, and I always tried to share any product that is helpful and necessary to make the life of the mommy and the baby easier.

#PlaytexEssentias #pmedia #Ad

Burping the Baby: Ok, of course you need to make sure that after feeding your baby, it needs some help to get rid of that nasty gas.

Clothes: Remember, your baby’s temperature is not that same as you, and sometimes he/she cries because is to warm or to cold. So, when choosing the clothes for the baby try it on he/she first and see if the little one is happy and comfy.

Feeding: Babies don’t cry just because they are hungry, and to taste this you can simply put the pacifier in their mouth and see if they grab it, it is very important not to feed your baby every time he/she cries. A healthy baby is a happy baby and to much food, is not good.

Sleep: This is very difficult for the newborn, because they don’t understand that you need to sleep too, so try to make a good schedule. Before putting your baby to sleep follow these steps, make sure they will be happy and ready for another day to come.

#PlaytexEssentias #pmedia #Ad 3

So this is our handbook and I really hope you like it. This little piece of paper is going to be present to my friend and her baby with the Diaper Genie I just bought for her which is the perfect gift for any new mom, a real helper for those dirty diapers, I know she is going to have for some time.

Sweet Merienda Moments DIY #FunSizeMerienda #CollectiveBias #ad

For those who are foreign to the Merienda term,  is a specific time of day where we shared with family some quality and use it to make it more educational and to connect with our kids and have some necessary dialogues enjoying a delicious merienda, coffee, tea, soda or other.
In the Latino culture this is very common, and it is a tradition that is passed from generation to generation.
For me, living in the United States, it has been even more important that my children learn and continue with these traditions.
In Costa Rica, we meet at 3 pm at the home of a family member, to eat, drink coffee and share with the family, is a way to have some conversations with our grandparents and Lear even more about what life was for them in the early years, it takes us about an hour or until the bread is finished.
In my house as my daughters do not drink coffee, I created a different way of sharing this moment of the day, which is to incorporate a craft they want to do.

In this case we made a DYI Merienda schedule for the back to school, and we incorporated this idea using Fun Size MARS Chocolates. Because everything is better with chocolate.

materials #FunSizeMerienda

This is the list of materials you need:

  • Markers
  • 2 Sheets of Construction paper (white)
  • Glue
  • 10 Mini Springs
  • Candy
  • Stickers

This is very simple, is a craft for the kids to use their imagination so let them be very creative. With the markers write the days of the week, do not include the weekend, divide each column, them add glue to place the springs in each column, and let them pick the candy to add to the schedule. They can use stickers just to place the first letter of the day of the week. Very important to add their name and if they want make some decorations.

Craft #FunSizeMerienda

What I love of this craft is the we spend a lot of time together and at the same time eat some chocolate, specially the Fun Size MARS Chocolates; These chocolates are perfect for any time of the day but special for a sweet merienda moment.
You can find MARS chocolates at your local Walmart  and to make it easy here are some pictures for you to know the aisle where is located.

#FunSizeMerienda #Ad #cbias

Our traditions and family moments are very important to us, and I want to know what are your traditions while the Merienda time, whats your favorite time of the day to have Merienda and what’s your favorite thing to do?
Leve me a comment I would love to hear from you.

The Boxtrolls DVD

As adults, we spend so much time trying to manage our everyday life the we forgot sometimes to spend quality time with the family.

And don’t get me wrong, I know work is important but, I adore to come home and see the happy face of my daughter waiting for me, specially when is family night. Oh my, let me tell you, it is just fun and crazy, and this time we had the opportunity to create and watch The Boxtrolls DVD. This is just the perfect movie to be creative and enjoy as a family, and not only that we learned so many values, like being together as a family, support each other, I talk to my girls about the importance some people  have over material things and being good or bad is related to who you are and the choices you make. This is a wonderful movie.

We wanted to do sometime different, and this is a great idea for you at home, involve the hole family, grab some papare bags, you know the ones we use to send the kids lunch, draw some of the characters boxes names or even like us some hats, because hats are important.

The Boxtrolls DVD and Pop Secret Popcorn

You can use this bags 2 ways, 1 make some cheese sandwich and take the kids for a picnic or prepare the delicious Pop Secret 10ct Home-Style Popcorn, and fill up the bags to enjoy The Boxtrolls DVD, because pop corn is delicious, perfect for movie n

You can find all this products at your local Walmart while supplies last.

 

This is a super fun activity to do with the family, and am sure the kids will be trial and exited to pack a lot of stuff in this bags, they can draw, paint or decorate and at the end you can cut the leftover top to make it look like a box, it’s super fun.

The Whole Family Needs Milk / Milk fuels a better future / Got Milk?

got milkAs a mom of two wonderful girls I’m always worried about my family nutrition, and because a good source of calcium, protein and vitamins is essential for our body, I just simply and always give my daughters milk.
Milk is an amazing fuel and we must drink it everyday.
Early on, we are introduced to the daily practice of drinking milk, not just at mealtimes, but also to act as a source of energy throughout the day. The main concern today, is to find the healthiest way to feed the family, and what many may not know, is that milk is an essential food full of vitamins needed to help grow and strengthen our bones and teeth.
An addition to drinking milk every day, we must add daily exercise, this is a great combination for the future!
Personally I recommend, especially because milk is not only great to accompany cereal or cookies and prepare smoothies, drinking a glass of warm milk before bedtime will help you to sleep better.
And you are asking me why should I care? Well my goal is to invite you to get more and more involved in you family nutrition by adding a glass of milk to your table, substitute sodas, juices and other drinks. Milk is necessary and must be part of your daily diet; you can even bring the cow to the table,…Not really, it’s just a joke, but you know what I mean.
And I’m sharing this with you because as I said before, I want my kids to be their strongest every day. Not only my kids, but my husband, my mother, my sister, just everybody in my family, needs to be more and more involved.
I also want to let you know a little secret, in my house I keep 3 different kinds of milk, yes I know, but this is why. I just love cold milk for my coffee, smoothies, and warm at night is delicious; but I also have fat free that I use for my recipes. I make a lot of recipes with skim milk, and 1 percent, just because sometimes I feel dangerous.
Well there you have it, the best way to introduce more and more milk every day to your family.

I also made for all of you a printable so you can print and start creating new ways to share this amazing movement to your family and friends.

If you like it and/or want a different message don’t forget to leave me a comment.

I also want you to check out these links where you can find more info, ideas and facts about the got milk? campaign.

Lemon Lime Wine Sparkle

INGREDIENTS

• 1 bottle of Riesling Gallo Wine
• 500 ml of lemon lime soda
• 2 lemons
• 4 cups of ice

DIRECTIONS

• This is a very simple drink to make, just cut the lemons in slices, add to a pitcher with the ice, wine and the lemon lime soda, mix and let it cool for ½ hour, and is ready.
• I also recommend to cool the wine and the soda the day before for less ice and clean and better flavor.
• Or just make the drink the day before and let it sit in the fridge, this is even better to keep the delicious flavor of the wine.
