Posted in Finger Food, Mum and Baby, Parent Know-How, Toddler Snacks

You might be familiar with the concept of ‘life hacks’. It refers to those practical tricks and creative shortcuts people come up with to make life that little bit easier. And, arguably, no one needs them more than busy parents.

We call life hacks tailored specifically to mums and dads, 'baby hacks'. Below are a few baby hacks that can help reduce the (occasional) chaos of being a parent but, more importantly, to save time and leave you more precious moments spent with your little one.

Baby Hack #1: Spill-free

With baby's in the car and on the move, it’s safe to assume anything that can be spilt will be spilt. Stick a curly straw upside-down into your bub’s cup so it will be impossible to yank out, keeping your little one – and your car and stroller – dry and free from sticky smells.

Baby Hack #3: Teething ease

Is your poor bub having teething troubles? Squeeze some Rafferty’s Garden fruit puree in the middle of a clean cloth, roll it up and pop it in the freezer. Your bub can enjoy the flavour and nutrition, while the cold will sooth their painful gums. Also, if your bub is teething try our Rusks range, designed to ease teething pain.
