Mosquito Bites Drive Me Bananas

I read somewhere that banana peels help bug bites not itch. I got a couple of mosquito bites while grilling tonight and I thought, "meh, why not try it out?" So I took the slimy side of the peel and rubbed it on the bites. IT WORKED! It wasn't instantaneous but after a few moments it stopped itching. Banana peels. Whoda thunk?  Of course now I have dried banana slime on my leg BUT they don't itch.   So if you or your baby suffered many a bug bite this weekend (or for future reference) give him a banana and rub the peel on his bites.

Sign of the Week: Afraid

Even the bravest child will find situations which create uncertainty.  Dogs, cats, people can bring on fears in children but also situations like fireworks or swimming. Giving him a way to express this feeling with the AFRAID sign will help you to recognize these situations and provide appropriate comfort.

Sign of the Week: Toothbrush

Teaching your little one to brush his teeth is one of the routines that you enjoy with your child.  Adding simple signs to your daily routines will help your child learn what comes next and will ease transitions from one activity to another. Try making TOOTHBRUSH part of your routine today.

When Do I start brushing my babies teeth?
Even before your baby sports his first tooth, it's a good idea to get into the habit of wiping his gums with gauze or a soft wet washcloth during bath time. You don't need to use any toothpaste yet. Simply wrap the cloth or gauze around your index finger and rub it gently over the gums.

What's the best way to start bruthing their teeth after they come in?
As your child's teeth start to appear (generally around 6 months), look for a baby toothbrush with a small bristle head and larger grip suitable for your hand. (If your child is healthy and still hasn't sprouted his first tooth by the end of his first year, don't worry — some children don't start getting them until 15 to 18 months.)

As long as you're cleaning your child's teeth regularly, you don't need to use any toothpaste yet. Just brush the teeth gently on both the outside and inside surfaces twice a day. Brush his tongue as well (if he'll let you) to dislodge the bacteria that can cause bad breath. One quick swipe is enough. Replace the toothbrush as soon as the bristles start to look worn or splayed out.

Sign of the Week: Flower

I love flowers.  They're the best.  I get fresh picked flowers every day from my kids - albeit they're dandelions...but STILL! I love them! 

Whether celebrating Mother's Day or just enjoying a spring day, children love to talk about FLOWERS.  Use this simple sign to give your little one a way to talk about the FLOWERS she sees and smells. Many children will add a sniffing gesture to the sign.

Sign of the Week: Grandpa

Adults play an important role in the lives of children. GRANDPA is one of these very special people. Give your child a way to tell you when she is thinking of GRANDPA or sees a picture of GRANDPA. Better yet, just wait until you see the smile on GRANDPA's face when she signs GRANDPA! My dad was the best grandpa to all his grandchildren.  He'll be sorely missed but I'm so grateful for his love and example.  Love you dad.
