What type of clothes will make it easier for my toddler to dress?

Designs on Front of Clothing

Clothing with designs on the front will make it easy for the toddler to tell the front from the back while dressing.

   
What is the best type of night light?

Night Lights

Buy the type of night light that glows rather than the kind with a bulb. Night lights with bulbs burn out often. Bulbs are usually hot and can burn a toddler. Bulbs break easily and can be removed by toddlers. The night lights that glow are cool to the touch, last longer, and use less energy. They usually are not as bright, so you may want to use more than one in a room.

Easy to Put on Clothes

Noisy Toys

Toddlers love to play with noisy toys. However, some of these toys can be quite noisy. Try the toy before purchasing it. What does it sound like? Is the sound annoying to you?
