How to Tell If Your Baby Likes a New Food

How to Tell If Your Baby Likes a New Food

Don't ignore your baby's signals about eating. Don't be deceived by facial expressions, though. If your child makes a face when tasting something new, he may be reacting to the novelty of the experience as much as the new taste itself. So, despite the face he makes, offer your baby a second spoonful. If he opens his mouth for more, you know you have a hit.

10 Simple Ways to Make Each Day Seem Longer

  1. Set the alarm -- It's oh so obvious, but even ten minutes gained at the start of the day avoids that always-in-a-rush feeling.
  2. Be tidy -- Don't waste time searching for things. This applies as much to your workplace as your underwear. Become tidier, but not fastidious.

Backyard camping guide for summer 2020 staycation

As the country slowly reopens, parents are trying to figure out the annual summer vacation. With social distancing still imperative, backyard camping makes for an ideal family staycation.

Simplify Meal Time: Kid-Friendly Meals You Can Make in a Muffin Tin

make-ahead muffin tin meals

Kid-friendly meals that adults love too can seem like the Holy Grail of feeding a family. Either you find yourself eating mac and cheese and chicken fingers, or you end up making multiple meals customized to each person's age, taste, and dietary restrictions. While one-pot suppers and family crockpot meals are a great catch-all for some families, others need more individualized options that don't require a sink's worth of dishes and all the free hours you can muster.

Understanding Depression

Understanding Depression

Depression is one of the most common and most misunderstood illnesses. Many people think that if they are feeling depressed, they should just be able to get over it by themselves. When depression becomes severe, this isn't true. Many times depression has biological causes and can be treated with medication. Depression can be overwhelming and out of the person's control. Depression can last for many months, or even years, if it's not treated.

Cold and Flu Season: Are You Feeding Your Kids Right?

Feed Your Kid Right to Prevent Cold and Flu

If your kids are anything like mine, once the cold weather hits, their noses become little snot-faucets. From October to April, it's one cold after another. We've dealt with everything from sniffles to full-on respiratory infections.

Cold and flu season is tough for little guys, especially since their immune systems are still learning how to fight off germs.

Of course, the best way to keep your kids healthy is to make sure they get plenty of sleep, plenty of fluids and a diet rich in a variety of vitamins, minerals and whole grains.

Fending Off Preschooler Food Fits

Fending Off Preschooler Food Fits

Now that he can better communicate his eating preferences, your child may hassle you more than ever about eating. Children who regularly refuse food at mealtimes or demand diversions such as television and toys in order to eat are prone to what I have come to call food fits: They use food to gain attention and to manipulate their parents and caregivers. When adults chronically cave in to crying, screaming children, they perpetuate this behavior. Children crave attention of any type.

Flashback to 1970:

Couple calls it quits. Mom gets the kids. Dad pays child support.

Fast forward to today:

Mom and Dad divorce. Mom and Dad split custody 50-50. Kids gets two homes.
