DIY Natural Kid-Safe Mosquito Repellent

DIY Natural Kid-Safe Mosquito Repellent

Summer may be coming to a halt for some, but mosquitos don’t quite get that memo.

You see, mosquito season is at it’s highest during warmer months starting in spring through fall here, but that doesn’t mean they won’t show up during warm winter days as well. If you live in the everglades, well, I feel for you!

I’ve always been interested in natural treatments since my early 20s. Back then, I had numerous complications that required antibiotics, then the antibiotics caused a side effect that needed another medication, and it was like a never-ending cycle of pharmaceuticals. That’s what made me start researching how to treat ailments naturally with homeopathic medicine. I knew they worked after they alleviated my complications, and that I would continue to use homeopathic medicine on myself and any future children I would come to have.

But what is homeopathic medicine?

Safe DIY Moon Dough for a Toddler Fun Activity

Safe DIY Moon Dough for a Toddler Fun Activity

Winter weather calls for new and fun activities since we can’t always get outside when we want to like in the summertime. And we haven’t exactly gotten any snow this year, besides the 1/2 an inch on Christmas Eve that quickly disappeared; and the rain isn’t exactly fun to play in either when you’re not covered in rain gear, so I needed something entertaining that was different and unique to her like moon dough!

I had made my daughter a rice sensory bin a while back but knew she was getting bored with it. She needed something else to keep her mind and hands stimulated, so I decided to try moon dough since she loves play dough.

What’s moon dough you ask?

It’s similar to play dough, only it’s silky in texture and doesn’t dry out like play dough, which is why I like it. (Some people call it cloud dough, cloud sand or even moon sand.)

You also only need 2 ingredients as well, which is another reason why I love it.

Different Ways to Soothe a Baby With Colic

Different Ways to Soothe a Baby With Colic

Colic is not fun for any parent, whether new or experienced. My sister dealt with a semi-colicky baby, and I honestly don’t know how she managed. I’d go completely bonkers! I get so stressed when my 1 and 4-year-old cries or whines at me for more than an hour after I’ve satisfied all of their needs. But, when my youngest has those episodes, she is either tired and wants to be held, or she wants to have the ninny when I’m trying to finish cooking dinner. It’s definitely difficult to handle sometimes. The life of a parent.
