10 binge-worthy Shows to Watch While Nursing

Everyone loves a good binge-worthy show, especially at 1 am, (or anytime) when the baby is nursing again. Or while folding laundry, I promise it makes laundry folding more tolerable. What makes a good binge-worthy show? Well, first lots of seasons. The more seasons the longer the binge, the longer you have until you have to find a new binge show. Second, episodes have to be 45 minutes or less. I use this rule because fingers crossed, your nursing session lasts about that long and you can go back to sleep after one show. Hopefully, this list will set you up for a long, successful and enjoyable binge sesh. Making late night – early morning nursing sessions a little less sucky. All of my suggestions are on Netflix, so get your Que ready and loaded with these awesome shows! Desperate Housewives– I mean who doesn’t love a little drama in their life? This show has all the drama and loads of seasons for you to enjoy! Parenthood– Also drama, but of the family sort. However, be warned you may need a box of tissues with this amazing show. This is one of my all time favorites! Friends– A classic. You can’t go wrong here. I use friends as my backup when I can’t seem to find something else or my emotions are high from parenthood. How I met your mother– …

Five Toddler Learning Activities on a Budget

These are fun, engaging hands on learning activities perfect for toddlers. These activities teach basic skills but can be modified to teach more difficult skills when your child is ready. Many of these activities contain small parts so you may need to substitute some materials depending on your child. Materials: There are many resources for acquiring materials, some ideas of free and cheap places include dollar stores, local buy nothing Facebook pages, Target Dollar Spot, or collect things from your recycling bin or have friends/family start saving items for you. I love to shop after holiday clearance when many of the items needed for these activities go 70-90% off. Ideas for Storage: zip locks, small plastic containers (I save containers from lunchmeat and cheese), various sized wet bags, shoe boxes. Activity ideas 1. Parking Cars – (Skills: fine motor, matching letters or numbers) Materials needed- shoe box, toy cars, scissors, tape, one sharpie, pieces of paper or plain colored stickers. First, cut holes in a shoe box for garages. Put numbers or letters above each garage space using paper and tape or plain stickers. Using stickers or taping on small pieces of paper put corresponding letters or numbers on toy cars. Have your child “park” the car in the the spot that matches the letter or number on the toy car. To include the skills of identifying have your child …

Best Cartoons for Babies and Toddlers You Can Stream Without Cable

We avoided screen time with our toddler until 2 years old, not because we felt it was bad for her, but rather we moved, restored a house, and started new jobs, and we just didn’t turn the TV on. So when it was time to watch TV again, I didn’t know where to start with a toddler in the house, watching my every move. I wanted educational and safe TV for her to watch. There were so many shows to sift through, I was lost and I didn’t know what to start with. Being a child of the 80s I went with the classic Sesame Street, which is great for older toddlers, but my daughter wanted nothing to do with Elmo or Cookie monster, until recently (she just turned 3).  I spent a lot of nights up watching shows to decide if it was something I wanted my ever so curious toddler to watch. Some shows I didn’t make it 2 minutes into, others I found myself watching for hours. The show that caught her mind and imagination first was Ruff Ruff, Tweet and Dave, a very colorful and fun show that young minds can relate to and understand. They go on adventures; tons of questions and imagination are involved.  We still turn this on every once in awhile for her, but don’t hold her attention like it did when …
