We all need a break from time to time

I'm taking a much needed break for some reading and relaxation. I'll be back soon.

Weekend Quote 4 from The Don't Sweat Guide for Parents

Richard Carlson, Ph.D. debunks some common parenting advice in Chapter 39 of his book, The Don't Sweat Guide for Parents. Here's one of my favorite:

"Give your baby solid food if you want him to sleep through the night."

No foreign proteins here!
Introducing solid foods to a baby younger than four months can be potentially harmful. His immune system is working to keep foreign proteins from getting in and causing allergic reactions. Early introduction to solids -- before the system is ready -- may predispose your child to allergies.

Hyland's 4 Kids -- Ungrouch the Ouch! For bloggers, sponsored posts are always a bonus. But what makes this sponsored post different is that I love, love, love this product, and I know you will, too! What happens when your little ones fall and get hurt? For parents and grandparents, all we want to do is make them feel better. But sometimes kissing their boo boos is not enough. That's why I was so excited to find out about Hyland's 4 Kids Bumps 'n Bruises with Arnica Ointment Stick! I already love arnica and use it internally and externally for my own aches and pains. And now kids, ages 2 - 12, can benefit from it, too! I mean, really, what could be better than natural when it comes to relief of kids' boo boos, bumps, and bruises?

Hyland's 4 Kids Bumps 'n Bruises with Arnica Ointment Stick is sold exclusively at Target in their First Aid Aisle for their #Made to Matter collection. Made to Matter -- Handpicked by Target™ is a collection of products that are natural, organic, and sustainable. At the heart of #Made to Matter is a variety of amazing products made with simple, recognizable ingredients that are designed not only be better for everyone, but are accessible to anyone as well.

As the grandmother of 4 little ones (ages 6, 5, 2, and 6 months), I can count on plenty of ouchies. Sometimes there are little boo boos. Other times, the bumps and bruises product swelling and a fair amount of tears. Having a natural, non toxic, paraben-free, safe and effective pain relief product on hand is a must. And Hyland's 4 Kids Bumps 'n Bruises with Arnica Ointment Stick is the only product I need. 

A couple of weeks ago, my niece's 2-year-old tripped and fell on the patio. As his grandma comforted him, I ran inside and grabbed my tube of Hyland's 4 Kids. I call it my miracle boo boo stick. And you will, too.

Let's face it -- generations of moms, dads, and grandparents have trusted Hyland's to ease pain and provide relief for a myriad of symptoms. That's because we know that if it's from Hyland's, it's non-toxic, safe and effective. You'll love it because the Hyland's 4 Kids Bumps 'n Bruises with Arnica Ointment Stick is free of all the yucky stuff -- PABA, phthalates, dyes, petrolatum, and it's packaged in a push up paper tube that is completely free of plastic. It's 90% recyclable, meaning it's earth-friendly! And your kids will love it thanks to Dot, Splat, and Biff, the Bruise Buddies who help Ungrouch the Ouch!
