It’s the time of year again when many little ones head to daycare, either for the first time, or seasoned little ones are heading back – what are the essential items which you need to remember for heading back to daycare? We rounded up some top daycare essentials which you don’t want to forget!
Labels: Labels are a must have essential for daycare, especially when you’re sending bottles, diapers, and baby gear. We’re big fans of Stuck on You labels for all of your little one’s stuff – everything needs to be labeled, from clothing to pacifiers, to bags, to bottles, to food items. Stuck On You Name Labels are safe in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer, plus they come with a scratch resistant coating making them waterproof and super long lasting. These quality stick on name labels will go the distance on plastic toys for ‘show and tell’ and playtime! Multi Use Labels are ideal for using on stuffed toys as it will not only give them more personality, it will ensure that these treasured companions make it home if they are misplaced. We recommend sewing down the Multi Use Label to their stuffed toy for added security. We love how creative you can get with these labels – you can personalize them down to picking font, which means your little one’s labels will be unique and special.
Diapers: While cloth diapering is becoming very popular for many parents, many daycares don’t allow for cloth diapers. Here’s a hint: remind them about a reduction in trash with cloth and that could make them reconsider. If you’re unable to talk the facility into cloth diapering and looking for an safe alternative to cloth diapers, we love Babyganics Diapers! Made with a new blend of plant-based materials, Babyganics diapers are intended for superior comfort and fit and enhanced absorbency. They have NO chlorine, latex, petroleum based lotions or fragrances. They are made with NeoNourish Seed Oil Blend: Babyganic’s own blend of tomato, sunflower, cranberry, black cumin and raspberry seed oils. They feature soft-stretch sides, leak control, and have a wetness indicator.
Safe Shoes: While not a concern for infants, toddlers need to have safe shoes to run around in! Many daycares ask that parents not send open-toed shoes, or sandals, as beginner walkers can have issues with them. We’re a fan of Bobux shoes, which has sturdy, safe and stylish shoes for newborns through kids. Bobux has been making incredible baby shoes since 1991, in fact Bobux invented the soft sole shoes with the ankle elastic system that makes these shoes easy to put on and they stay on! Made from 100% buttery soft leather that molds to baby’s feet. Many parents report that Bobux are the only shoes their baby will wear, because they are so soft and comfortable it’s like not wearing shoes at all.
