The chaos of toddlers! I was thinking we should have a thread with some tips/tricks to keeping our babies entertained or out of trouble. Little hints that others may not have thought of, etc... Please add anything you can think of!
For example, when I am trying to get ready in the bathroom without being interrupted I will put the kids into the bath tub to play with toys so I don't have to fuss over them too much.
During meal times, keeping the baby's hands filled with something (food or spoons) makes it easier to use an extra spoon to get food into their belly without the baby reaching for it.
Washing hands before (and after) a meal, I fill up the kitchen sink with soapy water and lean the baby over it to splash in. I will help them with a little scrubbing then dry their hands.
During diaper changes, I give the baby a toothbrush to chew on or another toy to keep them occupied so I can get them cleaned up quickly and *hopefully* without minimal mess.
I will post others as I think of it. Please join in!
