Snazzy Baby Knee Pads Up The Ante On Safe Crawling For Babies

An amazing advance in manufacturing technology has given Snazzy Baby Knee Pads a 64% increase in traction ability of the non-slip surface for babies crawling on all floor surfaces. It does not matter what kind of floor surface your baby is crawling on such as hardwood, tiles, carpet, slate, concrete or marble, the knee pads will provide the most technologically advanced non-slip protection while still allowing enough glide for your baby to be able to crawl without resistance.

Amazing Price Reduction too – now your baby can crawl comfortably and properly for only $24.95!

New parents already know that once baby gets moving from the cot to the floor, there’s going to be a lot of exploring and plenty of ups followed by plenty of downs. And like Jack and Jill, baby will come tumbling down on knees and elbows tender from weeks of crawling on abrasive or hard surfaces.

Snazzy Baby Knee Pads are ergonomically designed to allow for flexibility and movement without impacting circulation while your baby is crawling. Snazzy Baby is proud of the fact that their knee pads can be used for children with hemophilia, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, autistic spectrum disorders and muscular dystrophy.

To prevent cuts, redness, bruises and difficulty crawling, Snazzy Baby Knee Pads have won endorsements from the medical community.

Two medical professionals, a Clinical Psychologist and a Paediatrician , independently evaluated the knee pads for the Toy Man Product Guide. The Guide’s synopsis reads, “ Snazzy Baby Knee Pads are made to the very highest safety standards. Having the comfort of knowing that the product is endorsed by medical professionals, parents can be confident of their child being safe in using the knee pads while crawling. “

International Recognition For Baby Knee Pads

About the Snazzy Baby Knee Pads

“An infant doesn’t differentiate or classify a determination of risk or safety, they just perform an action intended. This being such, when infants are crawling on all four appendages, injury to an infant such as scrapes, cuts, and bruises are visibly perceived.

There is a hidden or more ‘unrecognised’ concern for parents and any other person responsible for the care of an infant or toddler. From the physical aspect, an infants body is developing at an exponential rate. This includes soft tissue, joints, and other components within each appendage which if not guided properly in their development, can result in serious detrimental impact upon the child not even showing full evidence until late teen or adult stage of life.

One of my strongest debates is an infant not spending enough time on the floor.  Use of a walker strongly discourages the desire to learn essential crawling behaviour. The crawling experience is essential, especially with special needs children. The Snazzy Baby Knee Pads serve well in this experience to ensure development of sensory and motor systems of the body and general motor skill development. “

“ In my own personal evaluation of the knee pads, the first thing which drew my undivided attention was the versatility. To be more specific, the ability to use the knee pads for more than a few months with the knee pads still fitting effectively and safely. The knee pads can be adopted for use with special needs infants as well. We tested the knee pads with several of the Autistic children being seen here in our medical facility with outstanding results.

How To Prevent Diaper Rash In 5 Easy Steps

How To Prevent Diaper Rash In 5 Easy Steps

Nappy rash is common in babies – red, sore and very tender this skin rash happens when the area covered by the diaper becomes inflamed.

It can flare up when the skin is in contact with a wet or dirty diaper for too long, or if your baby has diarrhea or  when babies starts eating solid foods or change to formula from breast milk, because their stool may change and irritate the area.

Some cases of diaper rash can be severe, where the skin blisters, bleeds or oozes fluid. This may be due to a secondary infection and should be looked at by your doctor.

Luckily, most cases of diaper rash are easy to treat at home and can be prevented.

Here are 5 easy steps to prevent diaper rash.

  1. Change the nappy or diaper often

Diaper rash generally happens when the skin covered by the diaper is wet or soiled for too long. The easiest way to prevent it is to change your baby’s diaper often. That way, any wetness won’t rub up against your baby’s skin and irritate it. A good rule is to check the nappy every couple of hours during the day and at night when you are checking or feeding your baby.

  1. Keep Skin Clean

It’s really important to keep the skin around the diaper area clean to prevent bacteria from spreading. At every change you should clean the skin with warm water with either a soft cloth or cotton balls. I found having a pump bottle of Sorbolene cream worked really well with a cloth or cotton balls and only used a mild soap if the bottom was really dirty. I used  baby wipes occasionally when away from home. Do take a look at the baby wipes you’re using and try to avoid any with alcohol, propylene glycol and heavy fragrances

Always pat your baby’s skin dry with a soft, clean towel.

3. Keep it dry

Nappy rash happens when your baby is exposed to prolonged wetness, so it’s really important to keep the diaper area dry. A great way is to go diaper-free. Let your child spend some time naked (supervised, of course), which will allow air to flow around the diaper area and dry it out.

Whatever you do, skip the talcum powder. Our Moms used it to keep a baby’s skin dry, but if your baby inhales the powder, it can irritate his lungs. Also, never use a blow dryer to dry a baby’s bottom, because the heat may burn babies’ tender skin.

  1. Avoid irritation and keep nappies loose

Baby skin is soft and fragile and irritates easily. It is much easier to eliminate any potential causes of diaper rash such as fragrances than deal with the end result so use unscented gentle wipes and super absorbent disposable diapers which draw moisture away or if you’re using cloth nappies check and change frequently. Adding half a cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle in your washing machine also helps.

Fasten nappies loose enough so that there’s room for air to circulate round your baby’s bottom.

  1. Use a barrier cream

Barrier creams are wonderful in protecting the skin against diaper rash. Look for diaper creams preferably with zinc oxide, such as Desitin.  Apply a thin layer at each change but make sure your baby’s skin is dry before applying it otherwise moisture can be trapped below the cream!

Follow these 5 easy steps and you’ll have a very happy baby!

How To Have A Great First Aid Kit When Traveling:

 How To Have A Great first Aid Kit When Traveling

Being prepared  for emergencies is really important and especially when you travel with little ones. There are numerous First Aid Kits available and it can be very confusing deciding what you really need. I’m going to show you what I carry when travelling and in my motor vehicle and hopefully you’ll find it good too. It comes from years of nursing and use when I’ve been the only person prepared with a First Aid Kit

 The kit I’m carrying at present is a St John Ambulance Patch n Go kit which is for minor injuries. I really like its easy to use compartments,  it is also very compact and light weight. It has a range of items you may need including great scissors and tweezers. If you’re flying you must remember to place your First Aid Kit in your checked luggage if it has scissors.

When you look for a kit, check it has enough band aids, bandages, tape, gauze swabs or cotton balls. This kit is great as it also includes a space blanket to keep your patient from losing body heat.

I also add in –

  • a digital thermometer which you can use under your baby’s arm
  • a crepe bandage – great if you live in Australia and you need to bandage a limb after snake bite – but also useful in most situations!
  • A pain reliever usually containing paracetamol or ibuprofen for lowering pain and fever. Always follow the dosage instructions.
  • An antiseptic cream or solution such as Betadine
  • A hydrocortisone cream, I prefer 1% which works wonders for insect bites, rashes, sunburn and allergic reactions and eliminates the need for an anti-histamine cream
  • Rehydration sachets – marvellous in case of vomiting and diarrhoea
  • Zip lock bag with cotton buds and cotton balls if they are not provided in the kit

Prescription medicines

If your child is taking prescription medicines, take enough to last the whole holiday

This First Aid Kit has worked well for my family, it is quite simple but has enough in it to help in an emergency. We would love to hear what you have found an  ‘ essential ‘on your travels. Please comment so we can all benefit or email me at sales@snazzybaby.com.au and I’ll publish your suggestions.

How To Always Have A Seat For Your Baby When Traveling

 

Thank you for your requests for a quick video to show you the easy benefits of carrying our multi award winning, My Baby’s Own Deluxe Travel Chair in your diaper bag when you’re on the go.

Great products evolve from necessity and this is how the travel chair was developed as I had to travel many times overseas with my baby son while my Mom was very ill and each time was a nightmare when flying as there was nothing to secure him to me. I was terrified I would fall asleep and he would land on the floor of the plane.

Travel Chair is designed to be easy – easy to remove from its attached bag and easy to shuff it back in when you’re finished with it.

In 30 seconds or less you can have a seat for your baby on virtually any chair, indoors or outside. Or use it on a shopping cart to keep your baby secure while you are shopping.

Place the Travel Chair on a seat and secure the long chair strap around the chair. Sit your baby on the travel chair and pull it up and while keeping a firm grip on your baby, secure the shoulder straps and then the side straps and you’re all set.

To use the Travel Chair as a lap seat simply place the chair seat strap around your waist, sit on a chair and sit your baby on the Travel Chair and pull it up and secure the straps. This is perfect for hands free holding or feeding or while you are flying – on the cruising portion of flights.

The Travel Chair can be used right up until your child is 17 kilos or 38lbs in weight or around 2 to 2.5 years.

Please go to www.snazzybaby.com.au or www.snazzybaby.us if you would like further information or to read the Instruction Manual. You can click ‘buy ‘at top of home page to access our popular and FREE  Travel Check Lists.

How To Travel Easily With Your 18mth Old To 3 Year Old Child

Now the fun begins when you travel with your older child, however it is not impossible to have a calm journey

Here are my top tips for traveling with a baby or toddler, most of them were learned the hard way.

  1. Pack several small toys and books that your child hasn’t seen before. Small books with lift-the-flaps or touch-and-feel textures often do the trick.
  2. Come armed with your child’s favorite low-mess snacks. The pureed foods sold in a tube are great for travel – older babies and toddlers can suck them right out of the tube, saving you the trouble of messing with a spoon. Self-serve snack boxes filled with crackers or dried fruit such as raisins are convenient and entertain your child
  3. Fly or drive during naps or at bedtime. Flying with a child is so much easier if the times coincide with sleep times.
  4. Use technology.Today’s world of being able to entertain your child with a favourite TV show or movie is a godsend. I-Pads or portable DVD players will keep your child truly calm.
  5. Dress your child for quick and easy diaper changes. Don’t forget to pack extra comfortable clothing like a onesie with leggings which gives you quick access to the diaper without removing socks, shoes, pants.
  6. When booking plane tickets, if you have a choice between a 30-minute or 90-minute interval between flights, choose 90.You may need more time  to change diapers, stock up on snacks, and play. Get to the gate early and relax.  Wakeful time at the gate can optimize  nap-time on the plane
  7. Feed on take-off and landing.Pressure changes can be so uncomfortable, and babies don’t know how to clear their ears on their own. Sucking and swallowing helps to keep ears clear, which will keep her so much happier. Breastfeeding is so convenient for this. If your child is older a lollypop works really well too.
  8. Arm yourself with baby wipes, plenty of them. You simply can’t protect a baby from germs while traveling. However you will feel better if you’re able to wipe down your tray table and arm rests with a baby wipe. It is impossible to keep her from touching potentially germy surfaces so wash your hands and your child’s hands when possible.

Expect your child to require more of your attention when you are traveling.  Try to prevent crankiness by staying on top of your child’s needs for food, drink, a clean diaper, some time to play, some special attention, and sleep. Have realistic expectations. Don’t try to do too much in one day. Enjoy the happy moments and stay relaxed and it will be easy to roll through the frustrating ones.

What are your favorite tips for traveling with kids? Please share what you have found to work well on your travels

How To Travel Calmly With Your 9 Months To 18 Months Old Baby

By the time your baby is 9 months old, she’s become used to her surroundings and familiar faces. Travel can disrupt her sense of security and routine, especially when visiting an unfamiliar place or meeting lots of strangers. This is total understandable so if you are able to try and keep her eating, sleeping and play in a similar routine to what she is used to you’ll find she soon gets into this the exciting flow of travel.

Before you travel, find out whether your accommodation can be childproofed before you arrive. If not, bring a simple child proofing kit  that includes doorknob covers, plastic outlet covers, and pipe cleaners or twist ties to secure curtains or blinds and electrical cords. Masking or ducting tape provides a quick fix for most danger zones.

Keep your baby or toddler as safe as possible on public transport and keep her secured in a stroller where possible. Make sure you apply the stroller’s brakes whenever you’re riding on or waiting for public transport.

If you’ve purchased a plane seat for your baby or toddler, bring an approved car seat for him to sit in or if you do not have the funds to purchase a seat for your baby on the plane, consider a Snazzy Baby Travel Chair or a CARES harness.

You may be wondering what supplies you will need for your older baby? Here are some tips to consider –

  • If she has a favourite toy, consider buying a duplicate. That way if one goes astray, your trip isn’t ruined
  • Pack your baby mobile or night light if they are portable as they are a comfort to your child in an unfamiliar room
  • Check if your travel accommodation has a travel cot or safe bedding for your child
  • Take along a couple of favourite books or toys. We found small stacker cups brilliant as they can double up as bath toys

How to Travel Calmly with a Newborn to Eight Month Old Baby

Travelling with a young infant can be fun but requires some preparation.

Your travel life needn’t grind to a halt just because you’ve become a parent. The reality is much of your trip will be spent soothing and entertaining your baby. Those days of dreamily staring out the window and taking in the passing scene have long gone. But while travel will never be the same, it has incredible benefits too. You may discover that the world is a much friendlier place and there is no easier way to meet people when you have a baby in your arms.

If you are flying check with your airline about availability of bassinets as you should book it at the time you make your bookings otherwise you will need to hold your baby in your arms. If you plan to use a car seat you will need to reserve and purchase a separate seat and receive pre-approval for your device at least 24 hours before departure.

Some tips to help things go smoothly for you-

  • Be flexible – in your planning, and scheduling of flights, car journeys etc and be prepared to take it nice and easy – allow plenty of time between connections or getting to your destination and you’ll then enjoy this whole new dimension to your travel experiences. The last thing you need is pressure
  • Select the right travel gear – this will certainly help keep your journey run smoothly. We will discuss this in more detail in a future video however the first item to consider is a baby carrier or sling which is such an ideal way to carry your baby as you need to be hands free to grab passports, tickets or go through Security. Second item to consider is a light weight stroller to use at the airport or train station without fear of having to hand it in at Check In
  • Start to make a list of what you will need to take for your baby – also include loved toys, rattles etc
