Baby’s First Christmas: Tips for a Happy Holiday

Friday, December 14, 2012 7:09:03 PM America/Edmonton

baby santaIn North America, baby’s first Christmas is usually a grand affair. Special ornaments, hand made baby blankets and lots of playing “pass the baby around” are generally in order. By the end of the night, both you and your little one will be exhausted. If you’re lucky, you’ll make it through with only one or two screaming fits. What can you do to make it an enjoyable affair for both you and your baby?

  1. Expect the unexpected. Even if your child has never thrown up or had explosive diarrhea in the past, ever (even if he or she is almost a toddler) be prepared for it to happen at your Christmas soiree. Children, especially older babies, get over stimulated and can easily end up with upset tummies. (Specifically when your uncle spins them like a helicopter after they have eaten.) Pack an extra outfit or two for spills, and bodily fluids.
     
  2. 3, 2, 1… Meltdown! Children are known for their holiday meltdowns and yours will be no exception. With all the activity going full speed around them, they are likely to get worn down and cranky much faster than usual. Chances are you’ve had your baby on the go for a few days before Christmas so he / she will be extra tired. Bring extra pacifiers, bottles and his or her favourite toy hippo – it’s going to be a long night.
     
  3. Be prepared for the Full Monty. Baby’s first Christmas is the ultimate dress-up party: frilly dresses, leggings, Santa sleepers and tiny herringbone pants are likely to be seen. Unfortunately, when you’re in a cramped party with a family’s worth of people, the temperature can start to rise. Don’t be surprised if you’re little elf  needs to strip down to the bare minimum. Stick a Christmas bib around their neck and take some cute pictures – it’s not worth the fight.
     
  4. Don’t overdo it. If it’s your child’s first major holiday, they are under twelve months of age. That means they don’t care at all about opening gifts. Unique baby gifts are much better than big bulky toys: special ornaments and books are much more likely to have meaning in the years to come. 
     
  5. Pack the playpen. Just because your baby doesn’t want to celebrate, that doesn’t mean you have to pack it in at 8pm. Bring your playpen and find a quiet spot to set up when you get there. When your little one finally starts to doze, (or passes out on the floor if they’re a mobile age…) simply take them to the cozy playpen with their favourite baby blanket (you never know, it may work!)

Other tips to remember:

Watch for party hazards: Christmas time is the only time of year that you may see nuts a’ plenty in bowls everywhere around the house. Keep an eye out for sticky fingers and these Christmas hazards:

  • Christmas light cords and plugs
  • Bowls of nuts
  • Lit candles
  • Alcoholic beverages that are easy to grab
  • Already irritated family pets
  • Glass Christmas ornaments

Baby’s first Christmas can actually be fun – just relax and be prepared! Happy holidays!

How to Choose the Best Nursing Bra

Thursday, January 10, 2013 7:01:35 PM America/Edmonton

From the beginning of your pregnancy to the late stages, your breasts will change dramatically. They become their own entity and you may not even recognize them when you are 9 months pregnant! Choosing the best nursing bra can be tricky; you have to think about fit, style, ease of use... It may seem complicated if you've never chosen one before.

Fit
The fit of your nursing bra is very important. Take a measuring tape and wrap it around your chest right under your breasts for a proper band measurement. Try to get bras that have several dfferent hooks on the back so it is size adjustable. The bras should be very supportive, but not super-tight. Your milk duckts have a better chance of being clogged with if your nursing bra is too tight.

When you are pregnant it's good to purchase an inexpensive bra that fits "right now" and post pregnancy you may have to purchase another bra when your milk comes in and your breasts get larger. Your first nursing bra shopping trip should take place about 2-3 weeks before you're due - your breasts will be about the size they're going to be right after you give birth. About 4 weeks post pregnancy you will want to purchase a couple of good quality bras that fit properly when you lose that water weight. (Now you're in it for the long haul!)

Style
Obviously you will choose bras that you think are attractive, like any other bra shopping experience. The wider variety of colours and styles is fantastic now - no more nude and white nursing bras for us! (Unless that's what you want.) A breathable fabris is best so that it dries quickly and gives your nipples a much-needed break. You will also want to stay away fro underwire whenever possible. Underwire can cut into your milk ducts and cause issues with flow and painful clogs.

Nursing bras have flaps on the front of the cups that open so baby can have easy access to his or her meal - make sure your nursing bra has an easy-open flap that you can open with one hand.

So there you have it@ Choosing the right nursing bra isn't rocket scince, but it is important for Mom's comfort and and baby's ealtime. Have fun shopping and gettig to know your new body!

Check out our stylish nursing bras.

Christening and Baptism Gift Ideas

Wednesday, February 6, 2013 7:00:00 PM America/Edmonton

Christening and baptisms are one of the most important days in a person’s life, especially a new baby. It is always a tradition to bring items to 

Christening & Baptism gifts

commemorate these special days; both for the participant and also God Parents. Often it is hard to know what to bring for a baby as a special thank-you for your invitation to their blessed day, but this guide will help you decide on the perfect baby gift.

Baptism and Christening Outfits
Baptism and Christening gowns
are most often purchased by the parent of the child, but can be very expensive and therefore a wonderful gift for new parents. The expense of the occasion can sometimes be a burden; taking that weight off of parents’ shoulders is a wonderful offering, perhaps from Godparents, grandparents or other immediate family. Baptism and Christening gowns are available at many American and Canadian baby stores and obviously need to be purchased in advance with the knowledge of the parents. The traditional color of the outfits is white and can be found in many sizes.

Keepsake Items
Baptisms and Christenings are very joyous occasions and can also be remembered with keepsake items. These include;

  • personalized baby blankets
  • piggy banks
  • teddy bears
  • commemorative pillows
  • jewelry
  • pewter certificate holders
  • keepsake boxes

These items are all fairly reasonable priced and come in a myriad of colours (a lot of pink and blue), styles (necklaces, i.d. bracelets) and can be personalized by the guest; having an item personalized is a wonderful gesture and makes the gift a very special one.

Religious Gifts
If the family you’re giving to is fairly devout, it is always a nice gesture to give the baby something to remind him or her of their special rite of passage in to the world. Bibles (which can be personalized), and children’s crosses and rosaries are very popular and traditional gifts and can be a little more expensive, but you can be assured that they will be cherished always.

Frames, Photo Albums
There are a wide variety of beautiful picture frames and photo albums available for Baptisms and Christenings. Some are made of pewter, some of hand-painted porcelain. A good idea would be to first ask what the theme of the child’s room is before purchasing a frame or album with a unique look to it or, simply ask the parents what they prefer. After the event itself, you can also donate some of the pictures to the parents as got with their new frame or album

Accessories
Bibs, headbands, bonnets and socks are adorable accessories that make the little one’s outfit complete. These are wonderfully affordable gifts, but should be given in advance of the event itself in order to be worn the day of.

There are many wonderful gifts to be considered when attending a Christening or Baptism; they are easy to find and have shipped right to your door or the door of the special boy or girl. Whether you bring one of these fantastic gifts, or just your fantastic self, the honorees are sure to be pleased!

Choosing the Right Baby Footwear!

Monday, March 18, 2013 6:56:07 PM America/Edmonton

Children's shoes

Modern baby shoes are medically and aesthetically correct and an important accessory for Canadian babies. Whether looking for baby gifts for others or your own little one, footwear if a practical and adorable gift. Babies and children should definitely have bare feet the majority of the time, but with the popularity of hardwood and laminate floors, playgroups and public parks, baby’s tootsies need some protection and socks just don’t cut it!

A baby’s first shoes should have a non-slip sole and be breathable. There are many new brands of shoes available at Canadian baby boutiques and Canadian baby stores. The best kinds are those that will let the baby have unrestricted movement and are more like soft slippers. They should also be made of leather, suede or canvas – not synthetic materials. For new babies, shoes like Robeez® or Jack and Lily shoes are great options. These mostly leather slippers come in every colour and theme imaginable (Robeez ® are also available in an eco-friendly option made of canvas), have elasticized openings so they don’t fall off, and most importantly, won’t impede the development of baby’s feet.

For a toddler’s first walking shoes, pick a shoe that is flexible through the arch so the child’s foot can move the way it was meant to. They should still be able to wear fairly soft-soled shoes made out of natural materials. Try shoes with Velcro or slip ons – not laces. Remember, your child will outgrow his or her shoes before he or she outwears them, so choose a price-friendly option after you have your child’s foot measured. 

Footwear is a necessity in colder climates for babies; and a must for toddlers taking their first steps. Do some research and look at the variety of footwear for kids to make your selection. Whether bought as baby gifts for a friend, or for your child, these shoes will get your little tyke off and running.

Rainy Day Activities for Toddlers

Monday, April 15, 2013 6:50:37 PM America/Edmonton

bath toys edmonton

Spring has arrived (sort of for Albertans…) and we all know what comes before May flowers! The ‘April Showers” have started andcombined with some still-chilly temperatures we are calling a rain-day! Don’t let the drizzles get you down – take your little one inside for some rainy activities that are sure to make them smile.

 

Remember the games you played when you were a kid? Dust off the old classics and have a blast. Hide N’ Seek is always fun and can be modified for toddlers. Count to a higher number to allow more hiding time, and remember to set boundary rules about where everyone can hide. Keeping the game to a maximum of two or three rooms on one floor of a house will make the game run more smoothly.

Every parent has a story about their child liking the box more than the present. Use this to your advantage and dig out a couple of cardboard boxes that can be used for playtime. Smaller boxes can be used for baby cribs, garages, cat beds and houses. Larger boxes can be used for houses, forts, kitchens and cars. Parents can do all of the cutting and kids can do all of the decorating with water-soluble paint, markers, stamps and stickers. Get some of your kids' costumes, dress-up or pretend play toys out to make the scene complete.

Turn anytime into tub time! The bathtub can really be a magical place for kids to play. Fill the tub about half full with lukewarm water, set up a little foot stool on the side for kneeling on and let the fun begin! Get out the bath toys, plastic kitchen utensils, bubbles, and more and let them splash to their hearts content. Simply set up some towels on the floor to soak up the water and make sure to supervise kids at all times. (Putting them inside the bath tub is a great alternative too but they can only last so long until the warmth runs out or their skin gets pruney!)

Colouring, drawing and painting are always kid-pleasers too. Some crayons, colouring books (or plain paper) and you’re set for a while. Many toddler-oriented websites also have great printable colouring pages with kids’ favourite characters and educational activities on them.

Some great printables sites for kids are:

So when the weather’s got you beat, remember there’s plenty of fun to be had in your own home that doesn’t involve movies, or computer time!

Looking for some cool children's toys? We have the best and brightest for your little ones! Visit babyandbeyond.ca to view our selection.

Staying Fit During Pregnancy- Pregnancy Exercises

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 6:47:02 PM America/Edmonton

fit pregnancy

Staying fit and active during your pregnancy will not only make you feel better, it will increase your confidence and get you ready for the big day! (And all the days of running around after a child after that…) First things first: always talk to your doctor before practising any exercise while pregnant. Also, make sure you talk to a health and/or fitness professional about the proper form for any pregnancy exercises.*

Walking: Good old walking will not only get you where you need to go, it will also keep you fit a firm during your long 9 months. It is an excellent cardiovascular activity. Just make sure to stay shaded, cool and hydrated. Choose shoes that are supportive and stay away from bumpy ground in your last trimester.

Strength Training & Toning: Just because there’s a baby on board doesn’t mean you can’t be a lean mean mommy machine. Keeping your body toned throughout your pregnancy will make you feel exhilarated and strong. When you’re doing your total body workout, be sure to lighten your weights and do more reps; around the 5lb mark is recommended, depending on your experience.

Yoga: This exercise is good for so many things… where to begin? It strengthens, tones, stretches, and calms you. If you’re going to do yoga while pregnant, just make sure you don’t over-stretch your body. Also, as your belly expands, use support (like a chair) for your poses that may knock you a bit off balance. You should refrain from doing and poses that focus on your ab muscles. Yoga will also prepare you for deep breathing that you’ll need to practice during labour.

Pool Time: You’ll feel lighter than ever rocking it out in the swimming pool. Exercising in the water alleviates stress and tension in your body, as well as gives you one heck of a work out. It will also keep you cool and get your cardiovascular system pumped up.

Being pregnant is no excuse to be sedentary. * Choose an activity or a variety of activities that you enjoy and work that belly girl!

*This article is not intended to replace medical advice in any way. Talk to your doctor before starting any exercise routine.

Children & Baby Sleep Solutions

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 6:19:44 PM America/Edmonton

sleeping

If you have a newborn, you probably nod off in the middle of a zzzzzzzzzzz ... We've been there. But none of us has to be. Developing good sleep habits is something most parents struggle with kids at any age. New parents can each expect to miss out on about 400 hours of sleep by the end of baby's first year! Don’t despair -   sleep studies have come a long way, and there are a number of excellent solutions available for sleep-deprived parents and fussy babies. 

Here are some tried and true sleep solutions:

  • Womb Sound or White Noise: Studies show that newborns find a great deal of comfort listening to sounds of a mother's hearbeat. Try the Sleep Sheep from Cloud B! The Sleep Sheep is the perfect night-time companion to help soothe babies to sleep in a safe, calming and effortless way. A sound box tucked safely inside a plush Sleep Sheep lulls one to sleep with soft "white noise" (i.e. quiet sounds from nature like ocean waves or the reassuring sound of a mother's heartbeat). Sleep Sheep's soothing sounds are an audio pacifier that can calm even the fussiest babies to sleep.
  • Swaddling is the ancient art of snugly wrapping your baby by recreating the comforting snugness of the womb. It helps your baby to feel safe and secure and can keep them from being disturbed by their own startle reflex (those little alarming jerks of the body we all get) and can also help settle your baby down when they are overstimulated. New research shows that swaddling may help reduce the risk of SIDS by promoting better sleep when babies are on their backs. Pediatricians recommend swaddling to soothe and comfort newborns, helping them sleep better and also to help reduce colic.
  • Babywearing is a good way to ease your baby into sleep. One of the best tactics is sometimes called “wearing down”. This simply refers to carrying your baby in a baby sling until they relax and fall asleep.

Children’s Sleep “Aids”
For infants, toddlers and older children, developing a consistent night-time routine can be the key to getting your little one to sleep and gaining a few extra hours of peace and quiet for mom and dad. 

One of the most popular nursery "must-haves" is a baby sleep sac. A baby sleep sac like GroBag is a “wearable blanket” designed for babies and toddlers to be used instead of traditional blankets and sheets. Baby sleep sacs have a neck opening and armholes and are therefore “worn” by the baby to help the baby stay at the right temperature through the night. In addition to promoting a safer sleep environment and helping reduce the risk of SIDS, the baby sleep sac prevents your baby from kicking off their blankets during the night, allowing you to rest easy knowing that your baby is covered and comfy throughout the night.

Sometimes the fear of the dark is enough to prevent a young child from wanting to go to bed. A soft night light like the Twilight Ladybug or Tranquil Turtle is can be your child's comforting bedtime friend. From within her plastic shell, the Twilight Ladybug transforms any room into a starry night sky to help comfort children to sleep. The Tranquil Turtle projects a tranquil, moving underwater effect on the bedroom ceiling to help lull children to sleep. Parents can also select a soothing melody or a calming white noise, to add to the relaxing underwater waves.

Have you ever been in the middle of a great REM sleep cycle only to be awakened by a pair of little eyes staring at you from the side of your bed? Have you also heard the words "I'm all done sleeping Mommy" at 2 am? We've all been there.For children aged 2 or more who are too young to read an ordinary clock, the Gro-Clock has a glowing screen showing images of moon and sun to help communicate the difference between sleep and wake-up time. The stars go out one-by-one during the night to show the passing of time. and the changing images will encourage children to stay in bed longer as they learn to 'stay in bed until you see the sun'. The GroClock face will change from a Blue Moon to a Yellow Sun so your child will know when it's time for them to get out of bed!

In order to instill good sleeping habits in your children, research and investigate a variety of baby sleep tips and solutions: try as many methods as you can and see which ones work for you and your baby. Don't be afraid to trust your own parental instincts! Sometimes Mom really does know best!

Benefits of Making Your Own Baby Food

Tuesday, July 23, 2013 6:08:35 PM America/Edmonton

We all want our babies to be as healthy as possible. Making your own baby food isn't as hard as it sounds. In fact it's so easy you may never buy a jar again, or have to buy a jar in the first place. And the benefits speak for themselves.

  1. You know exactly what's going into baby's tummy.Generally because of the packing and cooking methods of jarred baby foods, the vitamins and minerals are all gone, and there are preservatives or additives involved. Buying organic produce is a great way to make sure there are no pesticides or anything else on it.
  2. Your baby can eat the freshest food possible. Who knows how long those fruits and veggies have been in those jars, or what they use to keep them fresh on the shelves! 
  3. The whole family will be eating the same thing. Whether you're steaming broccoli or pureeing your unseasoned Sheppherd's pie (down the road) your baby will get used to eating the same things as the whole family. Your little one will know that what mommy and daddy are eating is what will be on his or her plate too.
  4. You can introduce baby to bigger variety of fruits and veggies. Avacados, raspberries, melon - you name it, you can puree it!
  5. It's ecofriendly! Instead of all of those tiny babyfood jars heading out in the recycle bin (or to the dump), you won't have any waste other that the stems, seeds and peels.

Yes, it can be time consuming, messy and inconvenient but we figure those little kiddies are worth it!

To make your own fruits and veggies just peel, wash, steam/boil and puree! The stick it in the freezer and pop the baby food cubes into freezer bags for freshness. Dethaw for meals.

Interested in making your own baby food? Baby & Beyond has a pethora of products to help make it easy on you. And if you'd like to learn more about this, picky eaters or introducing your baby to solids then you'll love Baby Bites! Hang out with a registered dietician and find out all of the tips and tricks to raising a healthy eater.

How to Choose the Right Footwear for Your Kids

Thursday, September 12, 2013 4:56:14 PM America/Edmonton

baby and toddler footwearDid you know... The foot is a very complex system consisting of 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. One quarter of all the bones in the human body are located in the feet. Because feet are the foundation of the body, when these bones are out of alignment, it can affect many other human mechanisms.

Only a small percentage of the population is born with foot problems. It's neglect and a lack of awareness of proper care—specifically ill fitting shoes in the early stages of growth and development—that bring on foot, leg and back problems later in life.

Important foot facts for children:

  • A baby's foot is not merely a smaller version of an adult's foot. At birth, the foot contains 26 partially developed bones (made of cartilage) making them pliable and therefore at risk to injury. Bones are not fully developed until age 5. While the foot is still developing, the cartilage can be easily influenced by ill-fitting footwear.
  •  It is natural for babies to have flat feet (over 97% do). That is because there is a thick pad of fat in the soles of their feet. Once muscles begin to strengthen, arches will develop, usually around the age of 2.
  • 85% of young children ages 6 months to 3 years have wide feet.
  • Baby feet can sweat twice the amount of adult feet (up to half a pint of moisture can be produced each day), so always look for breathable materials such as leather and mesh or anti-microbial linings.

How to choose the right footwear at the right time:

For Infants & Crawlers:
Medical experts (including the American Podiatric Association) recommend flexible, soft-sole shoes for optimal growth and development of young feet. Traditional stiff, high-top, hard-sole shoes are actually detrimental to the growth and development of little feet.  Our parents were brought up on the idea that babies learning to walk needed stiff, high-top leather shoes with hard leather soles for support. The reality is that babies' ankles are strong and quite stable on their own.

For more active youngsters, keeping soft-sole shoes on their feet (whether in a stroller or crawling) may present a bit of a challenge. We recommend Robeez Soft Soles as well as the PediPed Originals. Both are made of soft, premium leather. Robeez footwear mimics bare feet by flexing and bending with every step. Supporting not constricting growing feet, they promote good balance and unrestricted growth, while protecting little feet from the world. They stay on too, with elasticized ankles to ensure a perfectly snug fit.

For Early Walkers
Before you know it, children progress from crawling to cruising (the first steps while holding onto furniture, etc.) to their wobbly first steps.

Soft-sole shoes are essential for proper foot development and growth during this time and onward. Shoes with rounded edges help reduce stumbles and falls and flexible outsoles simulate bare-foot walking for a close-to-the-ground feel. For indoors, any of the above-mentioned brands are ideal, but for outdoor wear, we recommend a slightly higher level of protection than a suede sole. The Robeez Mini Shoez and Stride Rite's Soft Motion Footwear offers ultra-flexible designs; with protection against outdoor elements.

For Walkers & Runners
By now, busy feet are not only walking, but running, skipping and climbing. Flexible outsoles with rounded edges are reinforced with an added measure of stability and durability to help support developing bones and muscles. Perfect for bounding from one new activity to the next.

From ages 2-7, kids need increased heel and mid-foot stability while maintaining flexibility, but all of the issues from the previous groups also apply to older children. For maximum outdoor protection, we recommend shoes like the Pediped Flex.

Both have flexible designs reinforced with added stability & durability, Memory Foam Footbeds conforms to the foot for cushioned comfort, Sensory Pods with multiple touch points promote support and balance.

Important things to Remember:

  • Shoes should be made of top-grade leather or suede, canvas, or other type of breathable material. Plastic, vinyl and imitation leather should be avoided because they will make young feet perspire excessively.
     
  • A good fit is extremely important so that your child feels natural in his/her shoes. ¼ to ½ inch "wiggle" room is ideal from the longest toe to the tip of the shoe. This is the right amount to prevent tripping and maximize the life of the shoe. Feet grow quickly at early ages, and shoes typically need to be changed every three to four months. As the foot is growing, it is developing. If the shoes are too tight, the foot cannot grow and will not develop properly.
     
  • Poor-fitting children's shoes can cause a number of problems such as hammer toes, ingrown toenails, foot corns, calluses and bunions. Given the high level of pain and discomfort that these problems can cause, it makes sense to try and prevent these problems by ensuring that the child's shoe is fitted appropriately. Foot problems in children are usually preventable.
     
  • Shoes should never be handed down to younger siblings. Why? Baby shoes, especially shoes made of leather form to a child's foot once they are worn for a while. A person's gait is much like their fingerprint; it is unique to them. If a child wears hand-me-down shoes, his or her walking pattern may be affected since his or her feet are now trying to form to the gait of another child.

Your family's foot care is important, and the Baby Product Experts at Baby & Beyond are here to help! Making the right choices now, and sticking with them in the future will be an investment in your child's healthy future.

Remember.... similar to your body, your feet are still growing into your late teen years. So your tenth pair of shoes is just as important as your very first!
