Even in areas where it’s regularly humid, you can never get used to the heat. Mind you; I love sunny days. It always reminds me of fun outdoor outings and of course, beach trips.

More often than not, air-conditioning may not be a sufficient solution especially when it’s a long drive under the blazing heat of the sun.

How To Conceive Twins: Natural And Alternative Methods

I’ve always wanted to have twin babies. The moment I found out I was pregnant, I wished so hard the doctor will find two little ones in my belly.

Minimalist Toy List – Children’s Toys that Offer Quality Over Quantity

Parents would want nothing but the best for their children. I want my kids to have the best possible upbringing, and I have long learned that that doesn’t necessarily mean spending an exuberant amount of cash. One example here is for their toys. Children who are at a considerably young age will undoubtedly need some visual and mental stimulus. This is where toys come in. We have already tackled some fantastic educational toys before but have you heard about the minimalist approach when it comes to children’s toys?

Easy Steps On How To Sterilize Baby Bottles In Microwave

I can be a bit of a germaphobe sometimes which is why I always carry around hand sanitizers, pocket-size alcohol and sanitary wipes.

Well, that hardly applies when you’re a parent especially when you’re with a newborn whose immune system is not yet fully functional.

There are those who would say that baby bottles are relatively safe if you just clean them properly and so you only have to sterilise once – at the beginning. I don’t agree with this. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
