8 Reasons to Book that Babymoon!

The popularity of Babymoons (a couple’s holiday or break during the 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy) has really increased over recent years. After the last 12 months of restrictions, lockdowns and staying safe at home, many couples will be heading off for their first ever babymoon this summer and enjoying their last bit of freedom before baby arrives. But are babymoons worth it? Is this something that a couple should be considering during pregnancy or is it simply an unnecessary expense at an already expensive time?

8 Reasons to Book that Babymoon!

The popularity of Babymoons (a couple’s holiday or break during the 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy) has really increased over recent years. After the last 12 months of restrictions, lockdowns and staying safe at home, many couples will be heading off for their first ever babymoon this summer and enjoying their last bit of freedom before baby arrives.

But are babymoons worth it? Is this something that a couple should be considering during pregnancy or is it simply an unnecessary expense at an already expensive time?

In my opinion, babymoons are definitely worth the investment and they really don’t need to be extravagant to be enjoyable. Here are 10 reasons why you should book that babymoon!

  • A chance to reconnect with your partner – It’s fair to say that when a baby arrives, your opportunities for undisturbed one-on-one time with your partner will be dramatically reduced. A babymoon is a great opportunity to talk with your partner about your hopes, fears, worries and plans for parenthood and discuss your thoughts and feelings about the months to follow.
  • Relax & rejuvenate – A babymoon is the ideal to get some much-needed R&R. You can not only ensure you both get a good night’s sleep, but fully rest and relax and wave goodbye to the pressures or stresses of normal everyday life. You can also enjoy the luxury of someone else cooking meals for you, without having to even think about the piles of washing up that follow!
  • Adventure – Many couples see their babymoon as a last hurrah – visiting places or having experiences which might be more challenging once baby arrives. Whilst some options will be off the cards in the 3rd trimester, you can still enjoy hikes or walks, adults only resorts or even boat trips and tick a few things off the bucket list as you go!
  • Think of number one – In reality, this will be (at least one of) the last holidays where you can focus entirely on YOU and your partner – without having to think about a third persons’ needs and schedule to fit around. You can do things at a time that suits you, for as long as you like and enjoy some of the freedoms which may become more of a rarity going forwards.
  • Keep the romance alive – A babymoon is a great way to rekindle some romance in your relationship, regain that spark and remember why you fell in love in the first place. As well as some romantic dinners and moonlit walks before bed, this is also a great chance to be intimate and alone together before you have a bed invader joining you between the sheets!
  • Photoshoots – Babymoons in a remote, idyllic location or with beautiful outdoor surroundings can create the ideal backdrop for some memorable maternity photoshoots, helping capture the memories of you and your bump during the final stages of your pregnancy. Either ask your partner to take these for you, ask someone to capture the moment or even take a tripod and a timer! They will be lovely memories to look back on.
  • Get away from the attention – The last few months of pregnancy can be overwhelming with all the advice and attention from well-meaning friends and family. If you’re feeling anxious or nervous about your impending labor or parenthood, escaping for a while to a place with ‘limited mobile reception’ can be a great chance to switch off and stay off grid for a while.
  • Last but not least, peace and quiet – a babymoon is an ideal way to embrace some calm, tranquil peace and quiet. Sitting reading a book overlooking the sea or eating breakfast on the balcony in peace. When baby arrives, everything gets a lot more NOISY, so enjoy the silence whilst you can.

Make a First Aid Kit Activity for Kids

Make a First Aid Kit is an easy activity for kids of all ages and a great way to help prepare for summer adventures and misadventures. The post Make a First Aid Kit Activity for Kids appeared first on HAPPY TODDLER PLAYTIME.

Make a First Aid Kit Activity for Kids

INSIDE: Make a First Aid Kit is an easy activity for kids of all ages and a great way to help prepare for summer adventures and misadventures. Let your kids help put together a first aid kit for the whole family to use this summer and beyond!

Making a First Aid Kit

I first got the idea to make a first aid kit with my kids during a paid campaign with an iconic comic strip company. I set up the activity and didn’t really know what to expect from my kids. Well wasn’t I pleasantly surprised to see how much they enjoyed this activity and how much they got into it. We talked about taking care of each other and how a first aid kit was a great way to help out a friend or loved one who has been hurt.

This unassuming little activity took up almost an hour of our day. An hour in the late spring where they coloured, decorated and talk amongst themselves. After we put the entire kit together they even went and roll played getting hurt and then helping that person out by pretending to clean and dress their wound. It was adorable!

The Best Sensory Play Kits for Kids

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

Our Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!

DIY First Aid Kit

According to the Canadian Red Cross these are the items that should be included in a first air kit. We of course didn’t include all of these items but I have included everything here for your reference:

  • Emergency telephone numbers for EMS/9-1-1, your local poison control centre, and your personal doctors
  • Home and office phone numbers for family members, friends, or neighbours who can help
  • Sterile gauze pads (dressings) in small and large squares to place over wounds
  • Adhesive tape
  • Roller and triangular bandages to hold dressings in place or to make an arm sling
  • Adhesive bandages in assorted sizes
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Safety pins
  • Instant ice packs
  • Disposable non-latex gloves, such as surgical or examination gloves
  • Flashlight, with extra batteries in a separate bag
  • Antiseptic wipes or soap
  • Pencil and pad
  • Emergency blanket
  • Eye patches
  • Thermometer
  • Barrier devices, such as a pocket mask or face shield
  • Coins for pay phone

In our first aid kit we included the following items:

  • Sterile gauze pads (dressings) in small and large squares to place over wounds
  • Adhesive tape
  • Adhesive bandages in assorted sizes
  • Tweezers
  • Disposable non-latex gloves, such as surgical or examination gloves
  • Antiseptic wipes or soap
  • Mask
  • Hand santizer
  • Antihistamine (anti-allergy) pills – for minor allergic reactions
  • Hydrocortisone (anti-itch) cream

How to Make a First Aid Kit

  1. Grab a waterproof pouch.
  2. I had my 6 year old write FIRST AID KIT on the front in permanent marker and then let my twins decorate it with stickers and markers.
  3. Before putting in all the items, I check the expiration date for any items that weren’t new to make sure they would last until at least the entire summer. I removed any new items from their boxes.
  4. I then let everyone decorate the outside out unopened bandages. They loved this part! I let them use stickers, paint sticks dot marker gem stickers and markers. They made ones for each other, mom and dad.
  5. Next, I handed my 6 year a piece of card stock, slightly bigger than a phone and asked her to write out some important information on it such as:
    • My name and daddy’s name and phone number and our home address parent or guardian’s phone number(s), and home and/or work address.
    • The name, address and telephone number of their pediatrician.
    • Number for local emergencies including fire department, hospitals and police stations
    • 911
  6. If your child has any allergies or other medication it is a good idea to include that on the the sheet as well.

Once they finished decorating, I had them place everything into the bag, as they did we named all the items and talk about when we it for. Thankfully everything fit in the bag!

You can always purchase a ready made first aid kit and add the extra items as well as decorate it.
