The Table Tyke makes eating out or at home easier and safer for kids

As we think about better choices for the new year, perhaps a table mat comes to mind? Maybe not, until now! The Table Tyke functions in ways you may not have even thought of when it comes to all the features you need in a table mat for babies and toddlers. This 100% silicone placemat from the Table Tyke offers safety, sanitation, cleanliness and it is easy to clean and travel with.

The rounded edge helps with the chin and teeth bumps for baby. We all know they love chewing on the table ends and typically leads to mouth bumps. The Table Tyke protects them from such mishaps as well as when eating out, the germs from chewing on table ends-eww! It is its own, more sanitary, teether!

The connected straps are out of reach to baby but allow you a quick grab of the mat and to fold up for travel. They are not detachable, so you won’t lose them.

The grippy bottom prevents the mat from sliding on most surfaces. The edge is raised to prevent spill messes. It also comes in 5 colors choices and is dishwasher safe. The Table Tyke thought of everything!

Visit The Table Tyke shop or their Amazon store to order yours today and start the new year off a bit cleaner and safer!

Back to school parents and kids fashion from Little Bipsy

Back to school parents and kids fashion from Little Bipsy

Just north of me in a town called Edmonds, Wa is a brick and mortar shop called Little Bipsy. They started online and eventually opened their storefront and fed into other retailers as well. Little Bipsy is a modern apparel line for children and they also include some adult sizes as well. I am in love with their modern and comfortable designs that are so hard to find elsewhere. My youngest is a teen, but I remember that no matter how hard I tried to find classic, yet modern touches that it was impossible. His clothes were trucks and monsters and they were so thin and basic. I wish Little Bipsy existed when he was younger.

I was able to sample the adult waffle jogger and top line. The feel is a soft, thermal-like knit and the fit is perfect. I would not order a size up at all from your normal size. Right away, I could see and then feel the quality and I want to stay in these all day. I love a good pair of joggers to relax in and that are modern enough to toss on some tennis shoes and run errands in because they look as great as they feel. 

The collections from Little Bipsy include – Core Collection, Black Cherry + Spice Cider Collection, Marble Collection, Kiwi + Strawberry Collection and the Adult + Mini collections. Find great fall colors in modern comfortable knits for baby to Dad and everyone in between.

It gets cold here in the PNW for fall and into winter so having knits that will keep kids warm but still fun to wear should be in every child’s closet. Little Bipsy is your brand for such pieces. Shop their kids fashion for back to school!

Pillow safety for babies under 12 months

As a baby develops in its first year, there are a lot of exciting new things for them to experience. One of these is going outside and traveling in the car. Some parents may even want to take their baby or infant on an extended trip that requires air travel. While keeping things closer to home, there’s still enough to keep parents concerned and up all night with worry. Using pillows during travel can bring up some questions about the overall pillow safety, both inside and outside of the home. 

How safe are pillows for babies in their first year?

There can be a lot of questions about pillows for babies under 12 months. New parents sometimes feel overwhelmed by all of the rules and restrictions that they hear about. One of these hot topics is pillows for babies under 12 months. Using a pillow in a baby’s crib is an absolute no, but this doesn’t mean that it can’t be useful in other areas. Doctors recommend that parents keep pillows out of their baby’s cribs until the child is at least two years old. 

In a child’s first year, there are a couple of ways that pillows can be helpful. The first is a U-shaped pillow that is primarily used when a child is in their car seat. This not only helps with supporting their head and neck, but it can also provide a sense of comfort and security. Many children do not like the feeling of confinement that comes with being restrained in a car or infant seat. Using a neck pillow can help to give them a feeling of safety and relaxation. 

The other instance when a pillow is not only safe but helpful for an infant is when they are learning to sit on their own. Sitting is one of the major developmental milestones that babies achieve in their first year of life. As they are developing the muscles that are necessary for them to sit without assistance, a specialized sitting pillow can help to support them.

As a child develops, their needs will change, but having supervision is always important in the first few years of life. Staying aware of their movements can help to keep them safe. Regular check-ups with a pediatrician are also helpful for the child and the parents. Pillow safety is just one of the important aspects of a child’s first year. Keeping a child safe requires constant attention.
