HBO, Teething, and Bottles – Steve’s Daddy Tips (4-24-19)
Hi, I’m Steve and I’m a new Dad who has learned a lot of things over the last several months and I want to pass along some knowledge to you!
Each week I will be giving you some new tips for first-time parents and one spectacular Dad joke! So let's get to the tips!
- Today’s first Daddy Tip is for all of those Game of Thrones fans who subscribe to HBO just for that show. Did you know that HBO also owns Sesame Street? I had no idea but I saw it on my HBO app and now Charlotte and I watch it all the time! Oh, and if you want to save Sesame Street episodes to watch after you cancel your subscription, there are ways you can find online to totally record the episodes legally for later use.
- The next Daddy Tip is another tip to make the whole teething process easier on the whole family and it’s pretty easy, just be prepared and sympathetic. Charlotte has 4 new teeth coming in right now and the poor girl is not enjoying it. So we’ve made sure to have some helpful options for her at all times. We have frozen washcloths for her to chew on, we got our baby popsicles ready, she has all sorts of teething toys, and as a last resort, we have some baby Tylenol. It’s hard on everyone when your little one is teething so just be patient, try not to let their extreme fussiness get under your skin and, make sure you got some things that can help ease their pain.
- And the final Daddy Tip is a tip we are using to wean Charlotte off of using a bottle. Our pediatrician told us that it’s time for Charlotte to ditch the bottle, but baby girl won’t drink her milk out of a sippy cup, she likes it in her bottle. So Britt came up with an awesome idea of adding a little bit of chocolate milk to the mix and she will drink that out of her sippy. We are slowly changing the mix back to just a pure milk mix and hopefully, she’ll say bye bye bottle soon.
And now it’s time for an awesome Dad Joke! So, in honor of Avengers coming out this week...
