Friday Fun Facts

When newborns cry they don't actually shed tears, this is because the baby's tear ducts have yet to mature (tear ducts tend to mature at about 6 weeks). Because of this, irritants cannot be washed away causing baby's eyes to become more prone to infection.  

Cleaning Your Baby's Eyes
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and wipe them dry before handling your baby (make that a routine). Pour some cooled boiled or room temperature sterile water into a clean container. Using clean cotton balls or washcloth, dip them into the water and squeeze out the excess. Very gently clean baby's eyes from the inner corners toward the outer corners in ONE stroke. DO NOT rub or wipe in a back and forth motion. Repeat the same process with the other eye using a fresh clean cotton ball or an unused section of the same washcloth. This cleaning should be done daily for the first 6 to 8 weeks of life, and after that at each time you bathe your baby.

THE AWESOME MITTEN...really is!!!

Day 227: Mini Mocs

Mini Mocs

Visit our Contests page for a chance to win a pair of Mini Mocs!
Mini Mocs is a company that marries form, function and fashion for the youngest Michiganders and babies all over the world. Founded in Michigan in 2005, Mini Mocs is the brain child of Annie Boyer, aunt to her sister’s six kids and witness to her sister’s frustration at not being able to find unique, high quality footwear for her children. Mini Mocs is the result of Annie’s desire to change that.
Mini Mocs
Mini Mocs are essentially designer footwear for babies, but they serve a greater purpose than just keeping kids looking fashionable. Mini Mocs, which come in four different sizes, are pediatrician recommended for good development. Experts say that being barefoot is best for development, and Mini Mocs provides the freedom of being barefoot, with the protection of having shoes on. And because they are produced with motor skill maturation in mind, Mini Mocs provide the most support for good development at all stages of infancy.
And as if making those wearing them happy weren’t enough, parents will love Mini Mocs, too. Designed to stay on, Mini Mocs eliminate the tediousness of continually retrieving dropped and kicked off shoes. All Mini Mocs footwear is also incredibly flexible and machine washable – and what parent wouldn’t love that? Curious babies can even put their Mini Mocs in their mouths without causing parental anxiety.
Another reason Mini Mocs impress those who purchase a pair: all of the shoes are handmade with incredibly high quality material. The care exercised in the production of Mini Mocs ensures that each shoe is made to be the most comfortable, superior quality footwear on the market.
Annie also has big plans for the future of Mini Mocs; along with a redesign of the website she’s currently working on, Annie has plans to expand the products Mini Mocs offers, as well. She says, “With the New Year ahead Mini-Mocs is continuing to grow here in Michigan, the USA and overseas in Italy. We will soon be adding 2 new sizes to our permanent collection as well as baby accessories & some clothing.”
Mini Mocs

So be sure to like Mini Mocs on Facebook, read the great buzz they’ve received from those who’ve purchased a pair, and check out all the amazing products and designs on the Mini Mocs website! You’ll be happy you did, and so will the lucky baby who gets whichever Mini Mocs you pick! ~Hayley Serr, Feature Writer
