Keep It Up, Keep It Closed, Keep It Safe #ArribaCerradosSeguros

For families with children age 5 and younger, it only takes a second for an everyday household item to become a danger. Studies show that while parents often take precautions to properly child proof their home, such as locking away cleaning products in their kitchens, the laundry area is often overlooked. Like other household cleaning products, laundry pacs need to be handled with great care to prevent unintended exposure. Tide has partnered with some of our parenting bloggers to bring awareness to some of the vulnerable areas in our home and make every home a safe one by keeping laundry pacs #ArribaCerradosSeguros.

"El que los niños se lleven objetos a la boca es absolutamente normal y hasta beneficioso para su desarrollo. De hecho, según la Academia Americana de Pediatría, uno de los logros de los pequeños a partir de los sietes meses es precisamente explorar el mundo con sus manos y “probando” las cosas. Por lo tanto, si bien no debemos de tratar de evitar esta etapa de los pequeños, es importante  estar conscientes y alerta en todo momento. "

Not Your Ordinary Mamas

"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."
