MommyMoment: Cold Essentials

The dreaded cold has taken over my household several times within the last few months. Colds are tough on all of us, especially our little ones. So I want to share with you the cold essentials I use for my daughter when she is feeling under weather.

Humidifier: Adding moisture in the air can help loosen chest congestion and relieve dry cough. I prefer a warm mist humidifier (out of reach of the little one) while adding a few drops of eucalyptus or peppermint oil to water.

Baby Vicks Vapor Rub: At bedtime I run vapor rub on my daughter’s chest and back to help relieve congestion. Although this may sound like an old wives method, I’ve also rubbed some of gel on the bottom of her feet before putting white socks on her prior to bed. I have no idea how or why, but it always seems to help.

Johnson & Johnson Soothing Vapor Bubble Bath: A warm bubble bath is always a great way to calm and relax your little one when they are feeling sick. This particular bubble bath has hints of rosemary and eucalyptus.

NoseFrida: Say goodbye to fighting your little one to blow/bulb syringe their runny little nostrils. Though it may seem a little strange, the NoseFrida Nasal Aspirator is easy to use and sucks all of the snot out without starting a war with your child. Partnered with a saline solution, this is a must have for a stuffy nose.

Boogie Wipes: Running noses are never fun and I hate using tissues which can leave my daughters nose raw and sore. Boogie Wipes are nice saline solution alternative to wipe your kiddo’s nose without leaving it dry.

Let me know some if your cold essentials in the comment section below.

MommyMoments: DIY Tutu Basket

Hey Loves,

Today I’m going to share with you my latest DIY project. For Easter I wanted to try something new and unique, so I decided to jazz up my daughter’s basket with some custom creativity. I love making tutus so I created a tutu-inspired Easter basket for my little BriMonster. In addition, I drew inspiration from a few Pinterest pins and the lovely pastel colors of Spring. Below is a simple No Sew tutorial to make the tutu that will be placed around the basket. For those of you on Instagram I would love to see your baskets and be sure to tag your pictures #beesosimple so I can spot them. I hope you guys enjoy this craft and remember to have fun and create.

MommyMoments: Frozen Applesauce Dots

Apple-edit4

Hey Loves,

I’m back with a yummy frozen treat for your little ones. Today we’ll be diving into a Pinterest-inspired recipe for frozen applesauce dots. Since my daughter has been teething on and off for the past couple of months I have been looking for an alternative to sugary Popsicles. While browsing one day I stumble upon a pin about frozen applesauce dots and decided to try it out.

Directions

Wash and cut apples into chunks (I used three apples)

Apple-edit1

Place apple in a saucepan and add enough water to almost cover the apples. Boil on medium to high heat until apples are completely soft.

Let apples cool. Blend/Puree apples into a smooth consistency. Stir and check for lumps. (I also add a dash on cinnamon for taste)

Apple-edit2

Place desired amount into sandwich bag and cut the tip off one corner to make it easy to squeeze out your dots. (I used about 3 ½ tablespoons for mine. The rest of the puree was used as applesauce) Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and make your applesauce dots. Size is a personal preferences, I made mine bite size for my daughter.

Place your cookies sheet in the freeze (It took about 2 hours for my dots to freeze). Once dots are frozen store in a freeze safe bag or container.

Apple-edit3

My daughter absolutely loved this snack and it has become a staple in our household. Let me know if you have tried this or something similar to this. Be sure to tag your pictures #beesosimple so I can check out your recipes.
