LilHelper Partnership with the University of Toronto ISL:HEART
Hey Y’all! It’s Erin.
There have been lots of exciting things happening with LilHelper lately.
We have a new Lil Helper Partnership!
I’m honored to share the work that they are doing, tell you more about the organization itself, and how Lil Helper worked with them!
Hey everyone! Ariel here.Guide to Introducing Solids
If you’re like me, you were (or currently are) totally overwhelmed at the idea of introducing solid foods your sweet little baby. Guide to Introducing Solids
The sad reality is that our sweet little humans will grow up and they will need to start eating solid foods in order to get all of the nutrients they need to grow up strong and healthy, even if your mama heart is so NOT ready for it. But where the heck do you even begin?!Guide to Introducing Solids
Hey Y’all! It’s Erin.
An interesting fact about me is that I have a Bachelors in Social Work. My education and work experience are what led me to write about the diaper crisis. It is also the reason I want to talk about foster parents who cloth diaper.
According to the most recent federal data there are over 400,000 United States children involved in the foster care system. Over 100,000 of those children are within the typical diapering ages.
I feel so honored to get to share the experiences of 3 amazing foster parents who cloth diaper. Sarah and Grace are LilHelper Ambassadors, and Anna is a local friend of mine. As much as possible, I have tried to use their words in this post, because I believe that there is power in what they said without any kind of spin from me.
Hey y’all. It’s Jess again. I am about to share a little bit of my love for languages, specifically baby sign language, with you so take a seat because it’s going to be fun!
Baby Sign Language: A fun and different way to communicate with your baby
For years, we have been told that babies that learn to communicate with a combination of speech and gesture may develop larger spoken vocabularies. While this has not been proven true, it does help!
When our babies “sign” (it’s in “ “ because often babies signing doesn’t look like what you expect it to) it is met with great enthusiasm and more often than not, parents respond with a myriad of questions such as “do you want more food?” “are you still hungry” and so on. All of this is shown to create a more secure attachment between parents and babies and to allow for more learning opportunities.
This all sounds amazing but HOW DO YOU EVEN DO IT? Don’t worry mamas and papas, I got you.
