Family Matters: Baby Wipes


Baby wipes can be used on more than just babies! They can be used as a wet napkin on a picnic or a wipe to clean up a mess. Baby wipes are a must have on any road trip regardless the age of your children.



Family Matters: Infant Formula


 

Did you know that all infant formulas sold in the US are subject to the same regulations governing manufacturing and ingredients per the Infant Formula Act of 1980?

Store Brands formulas, while value priced, meet the same exact FDA nutritional requirements as all the National Brands, while offering substantial savings. Top Care Baby Formula is available in all Brookshire’s stores. Like all formulas, Top Care is nutritionally complete and meets the nutritional guidelines determined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

 



Family Matters: Road Trip


Baby wipes are not just for the baby, but for the whole family. When going on a road trip there’s always a generic list of items you pack, like snacks, drinks, flashlights and blankets. An item you may want to add to your list, if it’s not already on it, is baby wipes. When traveling with small children, spills can easily happen. Having baby wipes handy can quickly clean up any spills along the way. 

Young children love to touch everything! After a stop on your trip, you can use the baby wipes to clean your children’s hands.  Baby wipes can also be used throughout your trip to clean surfaces, like the handles of a shopping cart.

Next time you are planning a short trip to the grocery store or a long trip to see grandma, don’t forget to pack your baby wipes!

Family Matters: Introducing Solid Foods


Is it time for you to start introducing solid foods to your baby? We have all seen the commercials of babies eating Cheerios, well one of the first foods you can introduce to your baby is “O” shaped and puffed cereals. Other foods you can start to introduce, when your baby is ready, are mushy foods like diced bananas applesauce and avocado. Pick foods that are easy for your baby to eat, nutritious, and are cut small enough for your baby to eat.



Family Matters: Introducing New Foods


When I was an infant, my mother told me that I was always sick and not gaining weight. After several test, my parents learned that I had many food allergies.

It can be scary when you start adding different foods into your baby’s diet because you do not know how they will react to them. When introducing different foods, pick a food, like a banana, and let them eat that for 2 to 3 days before introducing a new food. This way if they have an allergic reaction, you will be able to know which food made them sick.

Do not avoid a certain food, unless the doctor has told you otherwise.

The most common foods that small children are allergic to are cow’s milk, wheat, eggs, peanuts, soybeans, and tree nuts.

 



Family Matters: Crying Babies


Babies cry for various reasons, because they are hungry, tired, wet or just plain bored. One way to comfort your baby is to take them back to a familiar place, where they feel the safest; the womb. Your baby was with you for 9 months, it misses you. It misses your smell, your warmth, and even your voice. Holding your baby is one way to comfort it, another way is to swaddle your baby.  If your baby is a little fussy and you don’t know why, try to either swaddle or hold your baby.



Family Matters: Cooking with Toddlers


Thanksgiving is a holiday that requires a lot of cooking and with hot foods cooking it can be scary with little ones running around. Keep a close eye on your children while cooking. You may want to put a movie on for your children to watch while you are busy at work in the kitchen.

When cooking on the stove, place pot and pan handles away from children’s reach, to prevent them from accidently pulling the hot food down on them. Make sure that the floor in the kitchen does not have any spills to ensure that you will not slip on anything that would cause you to fall with hot food in your hands. Always wear non-slip shoes while cooking to prevent falling and spilling hot food on yourself or someone else.  



Family Matters: Introducing Solid Foods


If you are unsure about when you should introduce solid foods to your baby, talk to your baby’s doctor before starting solid foods. When your baby is able to sit up and able to grab, this is an indication that they are ready for solid foods.

Some good foods to start your baby on are cereals, oatmeal, and vegetables. When starting a solid food, start only one food for a few days before switching to a different food. This way if your baby is having any problems with solid foods, you know exactly which food is causing the problems.
