This month we’re sharing some tips and products to help make potty training more manageable (and fun) for all involved!
Many children display signs of being ready for potty training between ages 18 and 24 months, but others may show no interest until they hit the 3-year mark and that’s ok too! All children develop at different rates, and no two kids are quite the same, so it’s important to make sure that your child is ready for the toilet.

Whether your child moves around in their sleep or stays in one position all night, bed rails are important for added bedroom and sleep safety. Installing bed rails on your little one's bed will provide an extra safety barrier that will help both you and your child sleep peacefully at night.
Here are a few benefits of bed rails that will help you and your toddler have a good night's sleep:
Fall prevention: While children are transitioning into different bed types, bed rails provide a safety barrier to help avoid potentially dangerous falls while sleeping as they get used to their new sleeping environment.
Security & Comfort: A large benefit of bed rails is the feeling of safety and comfort. They offer reliability by acting as a wall, similar to your little one's experience sleeping in a crib. This can be important for children and their families, as they can sleep better at night knowing that their loved ones are safer and more comfortable in their new bed.

Baby? Check! So now what? The first outing just you and your baby is undoubtedly a milestone that you’ll remember. With a bit of preparation and a few words of advice from other parents that have ‘‘been there, done that,” you'll find yourself sailing along with ease on your next outing with baby.
Pack the essentials. One of the best tricks parents of newborns can have is a baby essentials bag that always stays in the car, including diapers, wipes and a change of clothes, etc.. Having all the essentials ready to go will take away another significant stressor of feeling unprepared or not having the time to gather these items every time you leave the house. Even if you don't need it, you will feel confident and prepared to conquer your day.
● Pack all your essentials in our Strollerbuddy® On-The-Go to organize your items
● Help make your outing stress-free and hands-free. Keep your little one close with our versatile baby Carriers. Dreambaby® offers two options, Manhattan Carrier or Oxford Carrier, which are ergonomically designed to provide support for both you and your baby.
● Is the little one getting fussy? Our Pouch Pal® is the perfect item to bring for a mess-free snack time to hold them over before you head back home.
● Remember, when moving from indoors to outside, your baby’s temperature begins to change. We always recommend packing a Clip-On Fan to help keep your child cooler while out and about in the stroller.
Take Outings in Baby Steps. Then when you are ready, plan an outing for when you will have plenty of time to prep. This will help you avoid one of the most significant contributors to being overwhelmed - feeling rushed.
