Everyone loves a good parenting hack. By that I mean a cost effective, safe strategy or technique designed to help manage, and save time or make parenting simpler or easier. Its something that can quickly calm down a child, ease pain, entertain, distracts or make a task simpler, easier and quicker. With three children I’ve become a master of these hacks. My best most useful one personally has been to put my front door keys on a long lanyard to make them more easy to find when on the school run and so I can hang them up to stop little people wandering off with them.
When the kids were babies I used to find their arms stuck through the cot so I devised a safer method that a cot bumper to sort this issue. It basically involves carefully tying those cotton baby blankets with holes in them in a strategic manner. We’ve also saved lots of little fingers with the use of pipe insulators on doors edges to prevent them being closed!
Sudocrem have sent over some examples of parenting hacks:
- Put a hook at the back of a high chair to bold the bibs.
- Reuse a pool noodle and make it a door stopper and stop little hands getting trapped in doors
