THE DOCTOR KNOWS Practical and helpful tips for parents.
You’ve heard about the importance of tummy time for your baby, but what exactly is it? No, it’s not when you fill up their tummy with yummy foods – it’s the daily routine of placing your baby on their stomach to help them grow big and strong. Tummy time does a few things. It helps your baby strengthen the muscles in their neck and shoulders that they need to eventually sit up, crawl, and walk; it improves motor skills; and because it gets them off their back for a few minutes, it helps prevents flat spots on your baby’s head. We’ve got some tips to make tummy time as successful as possible for you and your little squirmer. Make sure your baby is always awake and supervised during tummy time. This is a must to ensure that they stay safe during the few minutes they’re on their tummy. If your…
Did you know your infant’s hearing is well developed shortly after birth? That means that music is beneficial to them from the very beginning. According to Parents magazine, babies are prewired to learn music just like they’re prewired to learn language. Not only is music a fun way to stimulate your baby or toddler’s mind, it also acts as a way to bond with your little one – research shows that moving to music with someone triggers the release of oxytocin, also known as the “bonding” hormone. Here at Dr. Smith’s®, we’ve created a special playlist with your little one in mind. Whether you’re on a summer road trip, at a family BBQ, or playing at home, these tunes will help your baby develop a love for music from day one. An interesting tip for when you start grooving with your little one: Try tapping along to the rhythm on…
Pregnancies are rarely easy or breezy. Even in moderate temperatures, the closer you get to delivery, the more uncomfortable and heated you’ll feel, too. If you’re going to be blessed with a late summer baby, that means you’re getting bigger while temperatures are getting hotter. That combo calls for some summer pregnancy survival tips from Dr. Smith’s®. Stay hydrated: Every healthy pregnancy calls for pushing more fluids, but that goes double when summer temps get hot. Get used to carrying around a big container of something healthy and cool. Ice water with lemons is caffeine-free, has less sugar than lemonade and is way more interesting than plain water. Feet up: It’s not just an old wives’ tale. Your feet and ankles get swollen the further along you get in your pregnancy. It helps to keep them elevated as often as possible. Better yet, grab a partner and get a massage…
June is Potty Training Awareness Month. When it’s time to ditch the diapers, we want to help you make it a smooth transition. Enjoy some potty training tips from Dr. Smith’s®. Wait for signs: Your toddler has to be ready to start potty training. If not, you’re setting yourselves up for a world of frustration. When your little one starts talking about it more, showing interest in the toilet or letting you know when they’ve just gone (or even better – just about to go), then you’re in the zone. They’ll let you know when they’re ready to go. Ignore timelines: You’ve seen them – all the potty training tips that promise the secret to potty training in one week, or one weekend, or even three days. Don’t try to measure up to any random timeline or unreasonable standard. Prepare for the long haul. Your toddler will get there, and…
We’re always ready for more sunshine and outside time. As you prep your family for the coming warm-weather months, it’s time to stock up on summer essentials. Dr. Smith’s® has built this seasonal checklist to help get you off on the right foot. And remember, summer is also diaper rash season, so don’t forget to prepare your changing area with Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Ointment and Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Spray. Swimsuits (2-3): Depending on how often you’ll be in the water, it’s good to have a few to choose from. If a swimsuit hasn’t dried out overnight, you won’t want to put a damp suit back on top of baby’s skin. Wetness is a trigger for diaper rash, so starting out dry will help keep diaper rash away. Tip: Look for suits with built-in SPF protection. Swim diapers: Whether they’re cloth or disposable swim diapers, you’ll want plenty of…
PARENTS LOVE DR. SMITH’S
This is one of those, "Why didn't I think of that?!" items. I used to hate getting diaper cream all over my hands, then the baby, then trying to find something to wipe my hands on while still holding baby. With this I just spray it on, fasten the diaper, and off we go!
Nothing works better for our kids than Dr Smith’s! We even use it when our legs get chafed and it works great!
The best product ever. I’ve used it on all of my children over the last five years.
I’m a believer! After years of using another product, we made the switch to Dr. Smith’s and we’re amazed with the results!
We have been using Dr. Smith’s for years. It got both of my kids through diapers and potty training. We love the new spray. So easy and less mess!
It’s the only thing we use – clears it up overnight! We love this stuff.
Absolutely my favorite baby care product ever. No messiness when dealing with diaper cream during the diaper changes. My husband LOVES it. Recommend it to all my friends, fellow moms and patients.
I love that it doesn’t get all over my hands, and it works so fast! I’m never getting another kind, seriously!
I have been using Dr. Smith’s for years and it is my most recommended product for moms. It works super quickly and I love the spray! My oldest son even asks for it by name!
Our pediatrician gave us Dr. Smith’s and it’s all I will use! I love it. It is light and gentle yet still takes care of a rash within 24 hours. Nothing else works for us like it does.
This stuff is the BEST for cloth diapers. No mineral oils to stain or repel, and when his little bottom is sore, I don't have to make it worse my touching the area. He actually laughs, instead of crying. Incredible stuff!
Words can’t express how perfect Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Spray is! No more messy hands and less crying time for fussy babies who fight you through the diaper changes.
