Once toddlers get moving they’re hard to stop! Very little gets in their way and big pieces of furniture are no exception. Their curiosity can sometimes lead them to gain extreme confidence in their climbing skills. Even though curiosity is a good thing, you should keep an eye on your little hikers at all times.

Mothercraft nurse Chris Minogue provides three effective tips to help keep your child safe and on the ground.

Are soaps and shampoos good for newborns and babies?


Have you ever wondered if your child really needs all the special baby products you find at your local shops? They are advertised as being manufactured especially for your baby’s gentle skin, so you might feel inclined to purchase them.

Outdoor play is all about fresh air and healthy bodies. Playing outdoors regardless of the season, children discover nature’s glory while developing their motor skills.

Whenever the weather is nice and warm, you can take your child’s usual activities out into the sun (or in a shady spot). Even if the weather is gloomy, there are still lots of play activities you can try outdoors with your child.

In a nutshell, just about everything inside can be turned into fun outside! 

Our friends at Crayola have a few fun ideas for outdoor activities you can do with your child.
