The Best Hacks For Parents With Young Kids

posted by Suzanne And Greg In The Morning -

Being a parent is never easy, and any little bit of help that may make your day go smoothly is certainly welcome. Well, Buzzfeed has just compiled a list of 23 hacks every parent with young kids should know and we bet a lot of them will come in handy.

Among the suggested hacks (click here for all 23):

  • Use shower caps to prevent the dirty wheels of your folded-up stroller from making a mess.
  • Use an egg carton as the palette for your child's finger paints or paint pots.
  • If your kid is the messy artist type, just put them in the tub with their paint and let them have at it; then just rinse the tub afterwards.
  • Stick a trimmed pool noodle on the door to prevent fingers from getting jammed and doors from getting slammed.
  • Write your child's name with a glue gun on the soles of their shoes. The dried glue will also act as an anti-slip grip.
  • Make your own ball pool using a laundry hamper and a few plastic balls.
  • Instead of using "shushing" noises, try to calm your screaming baby with an "OMMMMMMMMMMM" (as if you're meditating). The sound is supposedly a lot like the sounds that babies hear in the womb.
  • If you want to slowly wean them off their pacifier, slowly cut off little pieces of it – eventually your child will find it too weird to use anymore.
