Check Out Our #formulaforhappiness with Gerber® Good Start!
Many thanks to Gerber® Good Start ® Infant Formulas for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to speak to their new infant formulas now not made with genetically engineered ingredients. Did you know that Gerber decided to make all of their Good Start® formulas without the use of genetically engineered ingredients because that is what a significant number of parents wanted? This year our family is changing our diets and and routines! Kids are happier when they have a routine to follow on a daily basis, especially babies! The best way to help stick to your routine and create your own #formulaforhappiness is by writing down your family’s daily game plan and stick to it! Not only will it help you stay focused but your little one will start to get into the routine, making your day run smoother and happier!
Your daily game plan does not have to be complicated at all. Start by writing down your daily “chores”. My daily game plan for our family is simple but detailed. Our family includes my husband, myself, my nine year old daughter, my six year old daughter and my six month old niece. There is no way we could run a happy home without some form of structure.
The four of the older kids are in school from 8 am – 3:18 pm. This gives me plenty of time to take care of cleaning the house but most of all helping my 6 month old niece get into her own routine. We start our day after the older kids get on the bus, with her bottle and breakfast. It is a great way to wake up and get rid of the grumbly belly. After she finishes her bottle it is bath time, her favorite time of day! Clean clothes, clean diaper and a full belly make any baby very happy and ready for play time. Luckily, she loves nap time just as much as bath time which gives me time to quickly take a shower, run through the house and spot clean it and start a load of laundry. After nap time of course it is reading and lunchtime.
When the older kids come home they have their own #formulaforhappiness. It starts with snack time and a half an hour of free time where they can do whatever they want. Then it is time to complete any homework and chores they have for the day. The kids love knowing what their afternoon consist of and can get chores and homework done so they have more free time. We always sit down as a family to eat dinner and reconnect.
