My children and I are extremely blessed to have our grandparents in our lives. It’s amazing the bond between the multiple generations. I grew up close with my grandmother and it’s so special to see my kiddos interact with their GiGi. In fact, I was so lucky, that both kids didn’t have to be watched by someone outside of the family until they were older. We moved back to my small hometown, to be closer to my parents. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
Do you know how interesting (and terrifying) it is to think how much has changed since my parents had kids safety wise?! The first one big difference that I thought of off the top of my head is dropside cribs. In fact, my mom had multiple pictures of me in my Jenny Lane, with toys, blankets and goodness knows what else. Now we know how all of those things are no nos. Luckily, our friends at HALO (the amazing folks behind the sleepsack and swaddle) have teamed up with the First Candle organization and have created an amazing website geared toward grandparents!
If you are a grandparent, or have one caring for your children, the Grandparent Tips website has some amazing information. And the tips they give aren’t just for grandparents, all caregivers need to stay vigilant with what is safest for the smallest folks in their lives. Grandparent Tips has easy to read infographics that highlight the differences, and the site is easy to navigate. Also, anyone who goes to the site and signs up for emails can download a free ebook.
With the help of Halo and Grandparent Tips, hopefully they will help shed light on how things have changed and keep it easy to stay updated. Take a look at the new site and let me know something you learned or a no no today that was perfectly acceptable when you were a child.
