My Favorite Toddler Sippy Cups

My Favorite Toddler Sippy Cups

In this post I am sharing my favorite sippy cups for toddlers. We’ve been through our fair share of sippy cups with the twins. We have tried at least 10 different types. Some have been great and others not as much. In the end, I am easily able to narrow it down to four favorites. Two for transitioning from the bottle and two for older toddlers. One thing that is great, all the cups listed are very reasonably priced. This is…

Handling Changes In Sleeping Patterns For 3 Year-Olds

Handling Changes In Sleeping Patterns For 3 Year-Olds

Around the time J and S turned 3, it seemed like their good sleeping habits disappeared overnight. They were skipping naps, crying at bedtime, and waking up crying in the middle of the night. It was exhausting! I’m happy to say, in the last couple of months, the good sleeping habits have returned. They even still take a nap most days. In this post, I will explain how we were able to get back to a good sleeping routine. Sleep…

How To Remove Pacifiers From Toddlers

How To Remove Pacifiers From Toddlers

In this post, I will share the process we used to get rid of pacifiers. I was not sure how to go about taking away their pacifiers, but S, had started biting hers and making…

Sleeping Arrangements When Traveling With Toddlers

Sleeping Arrangements When Traveling With Toddlers

With the holidays approaching, there might be some traveling in your future. I thought this would be a good time to share what I learned about kids, traveling, and sleeping. This past summer we traveled with our 3-year-old twins on two week-long vacations. On these trips we faced the new obstacle of the girls no longer sleeping in Pack N Plays. They now sleep in regular beds, which means they are able to get out of bed. This is a…

How To Prevent Picky Eating From Your Toddler

How To Prevent Picky Eating From Your Toddler

I hear the same story from parents all the time…my baby used to eat everything, all of a sudden he’s picky. This story usually happens around 18 months to 2 years, the prime of the toddler years. I had a similar experience just as my twins were turning 2 years old, where they stopped eating whatever was offered. The twins are now 3 years old and they are great eaters. Of course they continue to test the boundaries, mostly by asking…
