Round Rubbermaid Container
With all these containers, you can cut an "X" into the
plastic lid and then pull them out that way. It will hold the moisture in
better. Have fun decorating the container if giving as a gift!
In addition to being more economical, most people claim
these formulas cause fewer irritations on the skin.
Diaper Rash and Baby Powder Substitute
Mix Milk of Magnesia and corn starch in equal amounts to
make a creamy consistency. Rub on baby.
Put some regular flour in a fry pan on the stove on low
heat. Stir it until it turns brown. Cool. Use as talcum powder on rashes.
Use cornstarch instead of baby powder. It is less expensive
and works just as well.
Use Zinc Oxide. You will find it in the Pharmacy with the
first aid products. (In California, we use to wear it on our noses)
Or: Mix 1/4 cup Vaseline with 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
Keep your diaper pins needle down in a bar of soap. They slide
through the fabric much easier that way.
Dinnertime can be hectic. Sometimes it's a lot easier to pull
out a jar of baby food then process your dinner food so your child can eat it.
Make up your food in advance. Purée fruits or vegetables and put portion size
servings in a muffin tin. Freeze. Remove from tin and store in the freezer in
plastic bags. Just microwave and it's ready to serve.
Buy gates in the Pet Store where they are less expensive.
