Wet Wipes: Not Just For Baby’s Bottoms

how to use wet wipes

How Did I Ever Survive Without Wet Wipes?

Wet wipes (also known as baby wipes). If you’re a parent, or you work in daycare, you know what I’m talking about and you’re already thinking “Yes! They are amazing!”

If you’re newly pregnant, almost a mum, or you’re considering being a mum in future (or your an old-school grandma who didn’t have wet wipes when your kids were young) … it’s a product you are going to remember for the rest of your life.

And you would shake your head in disgust; or you’d turn and walk the other way embarrassed for the parent; you’d offer unwanted advice like “if that was MY kid I would smack his bum”… and so on.

As a parent, your child having a tantrum is certainly one of the most embarrassing things that can happen. We often cringe, sometimes we cry. We all know at some point – it’s going to happen. They might be 18 months old, or they might be 13 years old. They Read More>>>

When is it OK to bribe your child

When you’re a parent, you’ve either been there already or you’re considering doing it soon – the moment when you first give your child a taste of chocolate, or ice cream, or some other delicious treat that you VOW they will only get very occasionally – and only if they have been really good. And they, of course, love the taste – because who doesn’t!

Chocolate and ice cream as a treat starts off as a great idea. Read More>>>
