Bribery. An ancient tool which has claimed results from the beginning of times. These days we call it “an incentive scheme” or “rewards system.” A reward system works on many toddler occasions. It is particularly helpful for potty training, making this often tough transition fun and rewarding. My boy loves superheroes (surprise) so I made him his own potty training poster. And with the help of Superman, Batman, a couple of pieces of chocolate and “the big prize,” my little Super Liam ditched his diapers and changed into underwear (Spiderman underwear, of course).
note; this poster is very “boy” so with enough requests from moms / dads of toddler girls, I will be happy to create a princess or Dora version. Just say the word (through comments on this blog post or our Facebook site)

If you’re like us, there are so many things taking up space in the baby’s room (all those toys from Grandma, more clothes than me and my husband combined) that we’re constantly searching for storage solutions. And a change table is such a bulky, big, space-waster. This space-saving, light-weight change pad shelf from Janet is built to fit over crib rails. It fits a standard change pad and also makes a fun hiding spot for crib playtime!
