Getting through the holidays while running behind a toddler can be a complicated task. Toddlers can wear you out and can make shopping, decorating or any other holiday chore downright dreadful. I know all too well about dealing with a toddler and getting things done. I like shopping at Meijer when I am totting Landon along because it is convenient to be able to pick everything up in one store at the same time. I actually found a doorway gate and some toddler snacks while I was in the store.
Huggies has an amazing campaign this holiday season called “No Baby Unhugged”. If you follow us on our other social media accounts you see that I have taught Landon to hug, A LOT. I believe in teaching my children to be affectionate. Huggies deeply believes in affection too. The act of hugging is proven to support emotional and physiological well-being in babies. Huggies diapers and wipes have been inspired by a parents hug, They hope to nurture a baby with care, cradle them in comfort and surround them in protection.
This is the fourth year Huggies and Meijer have teamed up in this wonderful effort to help shoppers give backby helping families in need during the holiday season from November 13, 2016 – January 2, 2017. When shoppers purchase a package of Huggies diapers at any Meijer store, Meijer will donate $1 and Huggies will donate a day’s worth of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network to help babies in need. In total, Meijer will donate up to $10,000 and Huggies will donate up to 150,000 diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network through the Huggies No Baby Unhugged program to help ensure babies throughout the Midwest receive the hugs they need in the form of diapers.
During this holiday season Meijer will donate to the National Diaper Bank via the “No Baby Unhugged” donation program for Huggies’ purchases made at Meijer stores, then the “No Baby Unhugged” program donates to the National Diaper Bank. You can also use the new Huggies Reward App and donate your Huggies rewards points to the National Diaper Bank.
While raising my older children I had to come up with creative ways to get my kids and toddlers to help me complete my holiday tasks instead of working against me. I hope my 5 tips to help moms get through this holiday season with a toddler helps out many many moms out there.
- Don’t shop with your toddler when they have missed their routine nap. A tired cranky little one makes a tired and cranky mommy.
- When home decorating your house, get your toddler to help you. It’s a great way to teach him to follow directions.
- My next tip is for in the kitchen when cooking, I give Landon a bowl and spoons. This way, they are right there with you, think they are helping, and you can see their creativity.
- When at home working on chores take the opportunity to teach your toddler to help in cleaning and putting things away.
- Finally, holiday travel is usually on the top of everyone’s list. Keeping a couple stuffed animals or soft toys available for your toddler while in their car seat or putting on nursery rhymes and singing along to them can help ease the trip tension.
We as moms shouldn’t have to become worn out during the holiday season. I hope these 5 simple tips can help you include your toddler in some of your holiday tasks.
