For any new mom, sleep is a very important topic. In fact, a survey has shown it's their number one challenge, ahead of time and money and is typically ranked among the highest in search terms.  Luckily JOHNSON’S® has launched a new global campaign called Tonight We Sleep™, which focuses on a proven sleep routine for baby’s happy, healthy development: Warm bath, Gentle Massage and Quiet Time. JOHNSON’S® multi-sensorial 3-Step BEDTIME® Routine consistently improves baby’s sleep and is clinically proven to help baby fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.

"I’ve been using the app for a week, and just love all of the features it has. One specific thing that we’ve been doing with Ju is the Tonight We Sleep™ 7-day Challenge. Through the challenge, we can track how Ju has been sleeping, and the progress we’re making while adjusting to our new normal. I happy to learn that although our routine isn’t perfect, we’re not doing too bad!"

"There are some nights when Shiloh is a doll to put to sleep, and there are some nights I want to pull my hair out. Sleep for adults and children is a very big necessity. Sleep for the little ones is essential because that is when they grow and develop the most. Sleep allows them to physically, emotionally, and cognitively grow. All of this helps with memory support, being active, and less tantrums. When I learned about Johnson's® Tonight We Sleep™7-day Challenge."

AT&T Digital You Program Offers Great Tools for Seniors

Last month AT&T worked with local nonprofits in Los Angeles and Houston to surprise seniors with smart devices they can use to stay connected. Four of our bloggers were able to go along and spread the cheer when the lucky seniors were presented with their devices. During the live event, a camera crew was able to capture those moments and an amazing video was created to show the gratitude expressed by the seniors about something as simple as receiving a smartphone or tablet.

"Today started a little differently. I partnered with AT&T as they delivered smart phones to five special senior citizens along side Meals on Wheels. The first woman we visited was so sweet as she told us about her family in El Salvador and how she had recently been hit by a drunk driver as she was walking home. I'm glad we could put a smile on her face during rough times. She was so excited to receive a couple extra gifts, especially when she noticed that her new phone has a camera! No more flip phone for Maria. :) #ATTImpact #ad#LatinaBloggers"

Isolation and loss of independence are two of the biggest threats aging seniors face, but through initiatives like AT&T's Digital You, which provide online tools, apps and resources for people of all ages to learn how to have a safe and secure online experience, they can say good-bye to isolation and losing independence. Our Latina Bloggers shared all about the Digital You Program and the adorable video made during the delivery of the devices.

"She loves being independent so having to rely on others to take her to run her errands, take my uncle to his appointments, do grocery shopping or even help with the use of a cell phone can feel a little demoralizing.

The Benefits of Soybean Oil In Everyday Cooking

Teen Pregnancy Prevention Starts at Home

Child Safety Starts Arriba Y Lejos with Tide® and Gain®

Keeping our kids safe should start at home.  We always think of home as a safe haven, but it's the first place we have to focus on when it comes to child safety.  Tide® and Gain® know that one of the rooms we spend a lot of time in and tend to overlook when it comes to keeping things out of our children's reach is the laundry room.   Last week was Poison Prevention Week and we learned from many #LatinaBloggers about their personal laundry room safety experiences and tips about keeping hazardous items #ArribaYLejos.

"It’s a powerful, phenomenal thing, but let’s remember that with great power comes great responsibility and in this case, as a parent, my responsibility is to keep my kids safe from the awesome products that make my life easier like Tide Pods and Gain Flings  because they demand the same kinds of precautions that all household cleaning products require."

Very Busy Mama

"I prefer my children to learn household responsibilities at an early age, know the truths (such as what is dangerous, etc.)"

Second Chanced Girl

 "As a parent, I take extra precaution when it comes to storing these pods. I love using my pods. They are super convenient and much less time consuming than having to measure out three products. I am aware of the dangers though so they go up on that shelf and the kids are not allowed in the laundry room."

El Tintero de Mama

"Lo primordial es reconocer que los niños pequeños son autodidactas y todo lo quieren saber y exploran el mundo con sus boquitas. El que los niños se lleven objetos a la boca es absolutamente normal y hasta beneficioso para su desarrollo, por lo que no debemos de tratar de evitar esta etapa de los pequeños. Sin embargo, lo que si debemos hacer es estar conscientes y alerta en todo momento."

Always make time to relax and #llevalasuave with Angel Soft® Lavender

Finding ways to relax is not an easy task.  Especially when you have small children, finding the time to decompress is actually quite hard.  However, it's important to find those little things and ways to help us get through those busy days without completely losing it.  Aromatherapy seems to be a great way to take your mind to another place, even if its just five minutes.

Check out how some of our bloggers find the time and use things around their home, including Angel Soft® with fresh lavender scent bath tissue, to help them relax and pamper themselves.

Mommy's Bundle

"As a mom to two little ones, finding extra time in my day to pamper myself isn’t such an easy task. Between preparing meals, wiping tushies and preventing meltdowns, taking time to relax just isn’t always possible. In fact, it rarely happens."

"Este papel es tan aromático que cuando voy al baño dejo el cerrojo sin poner por si me duermo de la relajación que me entra. Porque siendo mami trabajadora, y muy trabajadora por cierto, el único sitio de la casa donde me puedo relajar es en el baño."

En Tus Zapatos

"Hace unos dias me propuse asignar un rincón en casa donde pudiese desconectarme y cargarme de energía, un lugar secreto para relajarme, donde libere todo el estrés del día y me llene de fuerzas para entender que sí puedo  ser mamá y disfrutar de mi  vida; ese lugar maravilloso que hoy le llamo “SPA” es: ¡mi baño!"
