Where To Get Last Minute Baby Gifts

It happened again. You forgot to schedule it into your calendar that your friend’s baby shower is this weekend and now you’re about to show up at her party in a few days, or worse, a few hours, with nothing to show. We’ve got some help tips and last minute baby gifts for you!

1.  Blunt Classic Umbrella

blunt classic charcoal umbrella / Last Minute Baby Gift
This sleek umbrella looks ordinary but it’s anything but.
Costing $99, it makes for an awesome baby gift. When the new family goes out and about town – shelter them from torrential downpours and unpredictable weather with this inverse-resistant brolly. Available from Blunt Umbrellas.

2. 4 piece rattle set from Mothercare
No need to get all rattled with this 4 piece rattle set from Mothercare!
4piecerattleset / Last Minute Baby Gift
It costs $19.90 and it’s available at Mothercare outlets islandwide.

3. Red Packets
The gift that everyone likes to receive – a red packet.
Money is a practical gift that can be given easily to meet the needs of new parents.

Taken from eufass.blogspot.sg,

“Typically baby showers are held at the couple’s house or a function room of a condo.

$50 seemed like a rate that I would give an ok friend. A simple $50 note is polite, but I personally find that you can go an extra mile to show that you care. For example, you can augment your red packet amount with auspicious numbers like $68, $88.

For close friends and relatives, I would go with $168. It bodes well as it sounds similar to 一路發, which means earning big money throughout the baby’s life journey.

If you feel like giving more, by all means! More is always better than less, especially for the couple as it can help defray some of the exorbitant expenses needed to raise the baby.”

Where to get? Your own kindness and generosity.

White noise creates a safe space for them by blocking out that stimulation.

5 natural ways to deal with your baby’s eczema

Like all many types of eczema, we don’t know the exact cause. What we do know is that infants and toddlers who develop eczema do so because a combination of their genes and environmental factors. When something outside the body triggers the immune system, cells go into overdrive and cause the skin to flare up in the form of rashes, redness and intense itching. Lathering your baby with creams or chemicals or 5 natural ways to deal with your baby’s eczema? You choose.

1. Keep baby bath times to a minimum

Bath Time / Battle baby's eczema

Keep bath times to a minimum

Babies don’t need bathing every day and this is especially true for small children who suffer from eczema. Avoid the soap and bubble bath, keep the water temperature lukewarm and ensure it’s only a short dip so your baby’s tender skin doesn’t dry out.

2. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise

As a preventative measure, a few times every day – and especially after a bath – slather a good quality hypoallergenic baby lotion onto your child’s skin to lock in the moisture. To cope with your baby’s eczema, you may need to do this several times a day.

3. Give your child a daily probiotic

Probiotics contain friendly, live bacteria and may assist in reducing the prevalence of eczema.  Faulding Probiotics Eczema Support.
It contains six billion of the Howaru Rhamnosus strain, which will assist with supporting the child’s immune system and may also assist in reducing the prevalence of atopic eczema in infants and young children.

4. Watch the added sugars in your child’s diet.

This is a super hard one, I know. But I can’t stress the importance enough. Sugar is a very inflammatory substance and will exacerbate any inflammatory condition going on in the body—and eczema is one of them. Personally, if I have too much sugar (more than 10-15 grams of added sugar per day) my eczema on my hands will flare right up and itch like crazy.

5. Use A Humidifier

Dry air only makes dry skin (eczema) all the more dry. Moisten up your child’s bedroom air with a humidifier when they go to sleep at night.

How To Entertain Your Toddlers At Birthday Parties

When it comes to celebrating your child’s 2nd or 3rd birthday, activities to entertain them are tough to think of. You don’t want too many games or activities such that the children are thoroughly burned out, but you also don’t want too little activities that will then leave the children bored and running around like wild monkeys. So one is asked frequently on how to entertain your toddlers at birthday parties…?

Here are some activities that ensure you strike up a balance.

Dance party

dance dancing fun / How To Entertain Your Toddlers At Birthday Parties

Dancing is one way to burn off all the sugar from the food and drinks. Sure, toddlers’ do not have that many impressive dance moves, but it’s all about having fun together! For variations, you can tell your toddlers to ”dance like a tree in the wind” or ”dance like a cat”.

Make Your Own Sunglasses

In hot and sunny Singapore, what kid doesn’t like to say cheese with a pair of fancy sunglasses on? This DIY sunglasses craft is so simple and fun: Put out a bunch of plain kids’ sunglasses with some stick-on gems, sequins, small seashells, and confetti and let them come up with their own design. Then get out the camera!

This article could give you some ideas on how to design and create.

Treasure Hunt

An indoor obstacle course or scavenger hunt to follow the string

How To Entertain Your Toddlers At Birthday Parties? An indoor obstacle course or scavenger hunt to follow the string.

Like the picture above, you could turn your house into somewhat of a spy arena, and have your children hunt for objects along the string. This is a great game to be played indoors!

Being toddlers, they are naturally inquisitive with a lot of things and have a lot of questions. Turn that inquisivity to something good by sending them on a treasure hunt. For safety purposes, limit the space the toddlers have to explore, put them in groups of 3-4, then describe the item they need to find, instead of giving them object names directly.

Let Out That Energy

Buying that pinata can be very costly, so here’s a more cost-effective solution. A punch-box activity! You can tweak the game to match whatever theme your party is. If it’s a Superman party, the tissue/paper used could be blue or red, if it’s a Frozen party, the recognisable blue and white to represent Elsa and Anna in their icy kingdom could be used.

Entertaining your toddlers at a birthday party is one thing, but what about the presents to give?

If it’s a 1 year old toddler…. a Diaper Cake makes a perfect gift to give.
