Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world. There are loads of amazing bits but let’s face it, it can be pretty tough sometimes. Wouldn’t it be helpful to have a few handy shortcuts to make everything that bit easier? Well, funny you should say that… consider it done.
Let your little ones help you with housework.
Put your kids to work by turning chores into a fun game – they’ll never know the difference.
Bathe your child in a laundry basket so that their toys don’t float away.
And a good way to join in the M&B social media trend #BabyBoxing
Make night-time enjoyable by turning their beds into their favourite places.
Buy sheets and duvets with their favourite characters on and stuff their beds with toys - your little ones won't want to get out of bed.
Use cupcake holders to protect their hands from sticky drippings.
Saving wet wipes for only emergencies.
Save your old mobile phones and let your kids play with them.
No more using mum’s new iPhone when they’re teething!
Team up with the tooth fairy or santa.
Every mum needs some tactics for their toddlers.
Cut a sticker in half and place it on the insides of their shoes.
No more putting their shoes on the wrong feet!
Use a shoe caddy to hold snacks and activities during long car rides.
That’ll keep the kids occupied, happy and (relatively) quiet in the back seat.
Draw around your kids’ feet so you can go shoe shopping without having to drag them along.
Every parent knows the importance of planning ahead; from the new school shoes, to your little one’s education, you want to fill their future with hopes and dreams. Yet are you one of the 80% of adults here in the UK that has no life cover?
