    10 Month Old Feeding Schedule

    Today I would like to introduce Jasmin. She’s a first-time mum to a toddler and aunt to 12 nieces and nephews. Jasmin is also a certified teacher, and blogger at Jasmin Haffees. She will be sharing her 10 month old feeding schedule with us. You made it through the “milk-only” stage and graduated to solids, yay!!  You probably also made different choices for your baby’s diet since then as well: organic versus inorganic, fruit chunks versus fruit puree, vegetable bits versus veggie soup, and the list goes on.  But feeding your 10-month-old is actually a lot easier than you may think. And why is that? It’s because they can eat…

    Sensory Bins for Toddlers: On a budget

    Today I would like to introduce Juliana, a mum, who will be sharing her experience of creating sensory bins for toddlers on a budget. Sensory bins are something I came across a little while ago.

It can be really overwhelming to try and figure out where to start not to mention pretty pricey if you’re constantly changing it out every few weeks and making trips to the store for dump trucks. Sensory bins are amazing for keeping…

It’s a common question, and lots of mums do it. Let’s…

    How to grow a blog: Positive steps I’m taking in the current environment

    We’re living in uncertain times. The way we used to live, work, socialise has changed over a few months, and things are still evolving. We have had to adapt and continue to carry on. A lot of people have been impacted, including the blogging community. I know a lot of travel bloggers have been hit hard. But it’s not just travel, many niches are affected or will be impacted. For me, I’ve noticed my traffic has decreased, especially on Pinterest. I expect this relates to the decrease in travel searches due to the travel restrictions in place around the world. One of the topics I focus on is information about…
