Toddler Tricks - 1

7 years ago

Ways to trick your baby:

Problem:

If your toddler wants more juice, water, milk - whatever liquid - and the cup is still 2/3 full or more, your toddler is not going to accept that he or she still has enough juice, water, milk - whatever liquid - in the cup.

Solution:

When they ask insistently for more, go to the freezer, take out a small icecube and put the icecube in there.  The ceremony of opening the cup, putting something in, and closing the cup will satisfy them.

Ways your baby will trick you:

aluminum foiled!

Problem:  Babies love aluminum foil, but aluminum foil does not go back to its original roll.

Solution: 1) Don’t leave aluminum foil anywhere within reach of babies ever.  2) Buy it in 25-foot rolls, not 200-foot rolls.
