Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Halloween is just around the corner and if you’re anything like me, you wait until the last minute to find a costume. I usually end up transforming everyday clothes into a costume or make something the night before a Halloween party or Halloween itself (See the end of the post for my past costumes!) I don’t think Halloween is just a day for kids. The whole family should dress up and enjoy the fun! This year I decided to look into my costume ahead of time and found some adorable DIY costumes!   32 Family Halloween Costumes     27 Utterly Adorable Homemade Halloween Costumes for Kids    57 Cheap and Original DIY Couple Halloween Costumes   101 Costumes to DIY on the Cheap 7 DIY Maternity Options for Mom-to-Be 27 DIY Costume Ideas For Your Pets   Two years ago I was Rosie the Riveter. It was really easy to put together and I already had everything at home. I paired a denim shirt, as you can see in the picture, with jean shorts, a red bandanna and brown combat boots. For my hair and make up I tried to do a vintage/pin up look. The costume is not supposed to be perfect. Have fun with it! Last year I was Minnie Mouse. All I had to do was buy the ears. I wore a red skirt, a black long sleeve shirt, back pumps, and red lipstick to complete the look. I even helped my friends with their DIY costumes. Jen, on the left, was the classical vampire. She wore a LBD, black pumps, made herself look “dead”,...

Sleep Training Tips

Sleep Training Tips

We are excited to have a sleep expert shed some light on sleep with our WiFi Baby followers.  Sabrina Stempel, a Certified Maternity and Child Sleep Consultant, and founder/CEO of Baby Sleep Train wants to dispel some myths that you may have heard and offer child sleep training tips. Let’s face it, there is nothing a family needs more than good sleep and when it is lacking you are apt to try anything and everything.   As with most things in parenting, one size does not fit all. You may have to dig deep but it is important to find out what will work best for your family in getting the best quality shut eye. Child Sleep Training Tips | 5  Myths Your Friends Have Told You Sleep Training is bad because it means letting your child “Cry it Out”. False! “Cry it Out” or Extinction is a common sleep method but, there are many others to chose from which involve minimal to no crying. Most sleep methods can be customized to reduce the water-works as well. Did you know that sometimes sleep training only involves environmental and/or nutritional changes? That means no “method” is needed at all! Sleep training is selfish! Children don’t need it. It’s all for the parents’ benefit. False! When a child finally sleeps well, it is a relief to the parents AND the child because… Finally that child doesn’t have to cry or wait for someone to come help him. Children’s overall health improves with better sleep. Children’s emotional wellbeing improves when the parents are finally calm and rested. It’s too late to sleep train your child....
