Homemade Teething Biscuits

I was really happy to see some recipes to make your own teething biscuits on My Baby's Green. When I asked to post the recipes on this site, she said that she got them from Babble. Good information gets passed on.

Instead of the infant cereal, these can also be made with oats, ground in the food processor to a coarse flour.
1 cup whole wheat, all-purpose, barley or oat flour1 cup dry infant rice or oat cereal
1 very ripe banana, mashed until smooth
2 Tbsp. canola or olive oil
Preheat oven to 375˚F. 

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and cereal. In a small bowl, stir together the banana, oil and about 2 Tbsp. water; add to the dry ingredients and stir until you have a soft dough, adding a bit more water or flour as needed until the dough comes together and is not too sticky. (It will depend largely on the size of the banana, and how juicy it is.)

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out about 1/4-inch thick and cut into smooth shapes (circles or sticks, without pointy edges – squish them a bit with your fingers). Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10-15 minutes, or until golden. Cool completely and store extras in an airtight container.

Cinnamon Rice Teething Waffles

 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup cooked brown rice or barley, cooled
1 large egg
2 Tbsp. canola or olive oil
1 1/4 cups milk or water

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the rice, eggs, oil and milk and stir just until blended.
Preheat your waffle iron, spray it with nonstick spray and cook the batter a ladle full at a time, spread over the griddle (it will be thicker than typical waffle batter), until firm and pale golden. (Since they don’t contain sugar, they won’t turn as dark golden as traditional waffles.) Transfer to a wire rack to cool and break into quarters or cut into strips.
Makes about 20 wedges. Store in a tightly covered container or freeze.

Homemade Apple Chips
 2 large apples, preferably organic
Preheat oven to 200˚F.
Thinly slice apples crosswise about 1/8-inch thick with a sharp knife. Arrange apple slices in a single layer on two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets.
Optional: sprinkle a bit of sugar and cinnamon evenly over apple slices.
Bake in the top and bottom third of the oven until apples are tough and leathery to dry and crisp, however you prefer, about 1 – 2 hours. Remove from oven and let the chips cool completely before transferring to a sealed container for up to 3 days.
Makes about 2 cups apple chips.

Baby Biscotti
 1/4 cup butter, melted, or canola or olive oil

1 jar pureed fruit or vegetable (try sweet potato) or large mashed ripe banana
2 large eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2-1 cup oats
1 tsp. baking powder
pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, beat butter, puree and eggs until smooth. Add the flour, oats, baking powder and salt and stir until almost combined; add any additions you want and stir just until blended. If it seems dry, use your hands to complete the mixing as the dough comes together. If it’s too sticky (this will depend on the puree you use), add more flour until you have a soft, stiff dough.
Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Divide in half and shape each piece into an 8” long log. Place the logs 2”–3” apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray, and flatten each into a rectangle that is about 3” wide.
Bake for 20–25 minutes, until firm and starting to crack on top. Transfer the logs to a wire rack to cool for a bit and reduce the oven temperature to 275°F.
When they’re cool enough to handle (they tend to crumble when they’re still hot), place the logs on a cutting board, trim the ends and cut each log diagonally into 1/2”–3/4” slices with a serrated knife. Place the slices upright on the cookie sheet, spacing them about 1/2” apart so that there’s room for the air to circulate between them, and return to the oven for 30 minutes. If you like, turn the heat off and leave the biscotti inside the oven until it cools down to make them even harder. Makes about 2 dozen biscotti.

"Milkbone" Teething Biscuits
 2 cups whole wheat flour, plus extra, for rolling

1/4 cup skim milk powder (optional)
1/2 cup water, milk or apple juice
1/4 cup canola or other mild vegetable oil
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour and skim milk powder. In a small bowl whisk together the water, oil and egg; add to the dry ingredients and stir until well blended.
Gently knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured surface, and then roll it out 1/4″ – 1/2″ thick. Cut into desired shapes, in sizes suitable for your baby (ensure there are no sharp corners), with a cookie cutter or knife. Transfer to an ungreased cookie sheet and prick each a few times with a fork.
Bake for about 20 minutes, depending on the size and thickness of the cookies, until pale golden and firm. Turn the oven off but leave them inside for a few hours to harden as they cool.
Makes 2-3 dozen cookies, depending on their size. Store in a tightly sealed container.

Preparing for a Baby Shower

My cousin's baby shower is tomorrow. I said that I would plan for the games and make cookies.


My cousin doesn't know what she's having. This would have totally driven me nuts. I had to know!

I decided to make heart cookies because in our family, we love our babies. I made pink ones for girls and blue ones for boys. Then added the girl and boy symbol to them.


  1. I got 4 diapers, and put a different candy bar in them. Then the boy's and I melted them with a hair dryer. People have to smell them to say which chocolate bar is in each one. 
  2. I bought Easter M&M's {perfect colors for a baby shower}, a vase and baby ribbon. The boy's helped me count the M&M's and eat a few on the way. The guest have to guess how many M&M's are in the vase. Whoever is the closest gets to keep the jar and candy.
  3. Each guest gets a mini plastic baby. If anyone says the word, "Baby" throughout the shower, and is caught, the person that caught them gets their plastic baby. In the end whomever has the most babies wins a prize.

EverEarth Table Top Easel Review and a $25 Visa Giveaway!

My son's have really fallen in love with art. A year ago I just didn't think my oldest son Mica would ever like art as much as my husband and I do. He really showed no interest. One day he woke up and could draw. Now he draws and paints all kinds of things on a daily basis. Our youngest Isaak follows everything Mica does, so naturally he loves art too!

I really like stores that have handmade things. Cora Carolina is one of those sites! It has dolls that are hand sewn, wooden toys that are well crafted.

Cora Carolina gave me the chance to review EverEarth Table Top Easel made by Maxim.

Things I Love:
  • This easel flips from a chalkboard to a magnetic wipe board. 
  • It's made with solid wood. I could tell the moment I picked it up that it is not going to break.
  • This toy is great because it folds flat for storage. I'm very excited about this! My in-laws live seven hours away; this will be a great toy to take with us.
  • It has a handle to carry anywhere. 
  • No batteries are needed.
  • It's made with water-based, non-acrylic, non toxic paint.
  • Three new trees are planted for every toy that Maxim makes.
  • I love the beads under the board. It helps kids learn to count.
  • The magnets hold up artwork, or paper.
  • The packaging was really fun!

Isaak playing with magnets on one side, while Mica draws a picture on the other side.

Other Information:
  • This easel is a choking hazard for children under 3 years old. My son Isaak is only 2 years old, but I was right there while he was playing with it.  
  • It measures 20" x 3" x 14".
  • The cost is $27.99.

Anxiety in Toddlers

My toddler that will be 3 in May just started going through Toddler Stranger Anxiety. I hear a lot about Baby Stranger Anxiety, but not a whole lot about toddlers.

Here's just a few examples:
  • My sister goes to a stroller class to get exercise. Sometimes she has her stroller full of kid's. Every once in awhile Isaak will ride in another mom's stroller. He hasn't wanted anything to do with that the last two times. He scream cries. Then later on at the playground if his cousin isn't right at his side, Isaak freaks out.
  • Over the weekend we had family over at our house. When Grandma and Grandpa got in Isaak was fine. As other people started to walk in Isaak scream cried. I really thought something was wrong with him. Isaak sees everyone on a regular basis except for my older sister's family. He hasn't seen them since Christmas.
  • In the checkout line at Costco, they pull the cart to the opposite side that you are paying. Isaak had a look of panic on his face. I ran over and grabbed him before he started to cry.
  • In public restrooms Isaak gets terrified to go potty when there's an automatic flusher and he hates the hand blow dryers! A great blogger here gave me the idea of putting sticky notes over the sensors of the automatic flusher. I haven't been anywhere to try this yet, but will.
I read about toddler anxiety here and here. These are some of the key fears I learned from the articles:
  • Toddlers are old enough to understand that the world is big. Being out of their comfort zone is HUGE to them.
  • The family dog barks and the cat scratches.
  • Other little kids take toys.
  • Parents disappear for what seems like long periods of time to them.
  • Loud noises like the vacuum cleaner scare them.
  • Older kids fill their world with scary thoughts. Like: There's a monster downstairs; when really it's just the washer, or dryer.
    Although we don't have a dog or a cat, many other things are key indicators towards things Isaak is sensitive to. Instead of being afraid of the vacuum, it's the automatic flusher toilets. I'm sure other kid's take his toy's. He's around 3 other kids all the time, and is the youngest in the group. We have a family full of people that joke around. I can see how Isaak would take one of our jokes seriously. I'll have to watch that!

    I did experience a little stranger anxiety with my older son Mica. He acted out in a different way. He did what I called, "The Nervous Dance". He'd prance around a room all uncomfortably.

    I'm happy to learn that this like a lot of stages, goes away with time. There is something to be said about stranger anxiety that is good; you don't want your kids to feel so comfortable with strangers that they go to just anybody.

    I think the best thing to do is hug them and reassure them that everything is ok. Tell them that you are there for them.

    Feeling Artsy?

    I'm a college graphic design/illustration teacher, my husband is a jewelry/sculpture designer, so naturally we wanted our kids to be interested in art.

    The first step to painting for beginners is to make sure they can eat what they are painting with. Little kids want to put everything in their mouths before they know better!

    I would mix up vanilla pudding. You can make it with left over breast milk, or whole milk. Then separate it into plastic bowls to add a a little food coloring for variety.

    I would get them naked, or put them in something I could care less about them messing up.

    Then lay a cut up garbage bag on the kitchen floor with a large sheet of paper on it.

    They went to town with a great finger painting, and loved every minute of it!!!

    Clean up was easy, we just picked them up and gave them a bath.

    If you want a design, logo, saying to be under the finger painting you can do a transfer technique. 

    Do this a day or two before your child finger paints. I printed out "Happy Valentines Day!" backwards on an ink jet. Then laid it print side down over a wet layer of clear Matte Medium, Gel Medium, even Elmer's Glue works {some kind of clear paint}. Let it dry all the way! Then wet the print with a sponge or washcloth. Start to peel the paper with your hand. The print out stays in the clear paint. Since the pudding is somewhat transparent, you can still see the image under it.

    To have a chance to win some Melissa and Doug art supplies you can go to My Wee View. Gummylump is giving away a lot of creative fun items! The list includes:

    • Pet Stamper Set by Melissa and Doug
    • Palm Stamper Set Pink by Melissa and Doug
    • Large Paintbrush set
    • Deluxe Poster Paint Set by Melissa & Doug
    • Artists Smock by Melissa & Doug
    • Fashion Stencil Set by Melissa and Doug
    • Complete the Picture Pad by Melissa & Doug
    • Finger Paint Paper (12x18) by Melissa and Doug

    Shoes for Babies and Kids

    I rarely put shoes on my infant's feet.

    When they got around 6 months, old enough to crawl, or walk around furniture I decided that extra foot protection was a plus.

    For older babies I liked Robeez. If you sign up for their mailing list they often have deals where you can buy a pair and get a pair 1/2 off.

    Robeez and other similar brands have very soft soles! Soft soles or being barefoot really helps them when they are learning to walk.

    Robeez Product Features {found directly from their site}:
    • The best shoe mimics bare feet, by supporting - not constricting tiny growing feet. 
    • Robeez footwear flex and bend with every step. 
    • They promote good balance and unrestricted growth, while protecting little feet from the world.
    • They stay on too, with elasticized ankles to ensure a perfectly snug fit.

    When my kiddo's started running, and playing outside more I liked something a little more sturdy. Robeez has some shoes with a flexible, yet sturdy sole. I really like the design options of See Kai Run! They have a lot of style choices! Their sizes go up quite a bit.

    See Kai Run Product Features {found directly from their site}:
    • Handcrafted from butter-soft leather
    • Flexible rubber sole – healthy for developing feet but sturdy enough for outdoor play!
    • Generous width and wide toe box for plenty of wiggle room!
    • Padded collars for extra comfort
    • Adjustable hook and loop closures make shoes easy to get on and ensure a great fit
    • Breathable leather insole and lining
    My Wee View is hosting a great giveaway for the winner's choice of shoes from See Kai Run!

    What kind of shoes have you or do you get your little one?

    3rd Push in Defense of Breast-Feeding

    This is the name of the article that was in today's Midlands section of the newspaper here in Omaha, Nebraska.

    The article can be found here. I'm not at all upset with the writer of the article. I'm upset with Nebraska's outlook on breastfeeding.

    The craziest line that caught my attention: 

    "There would also be the mother feeding her child in an out-of-the-way corner of Joslyn Art Museum who was told to go into the bathroom instead.

    The irony? She was sitting next to a statue of a bare-breasted woman." -

    Nebraska is one of only two states without legal protection for the practice.
    Iowa has had a law that protects breast-feeding for a decade. Most states have laws like LB 197. Some merely exclude breast-feeding from public indecency laws."  -

    Breast-feeding helps protect infants from ear, respiratory and urinary tract infections and from diarrhea. It reduces the chances of developing asthma and protects against sudden infant death syndrome.

    Because babies breast-fed for six months are less likely to become obese, it's a key strategy in the battle against childhood obesity.

    And it helps mothers return to pre-pregnancy weight and reduces the risk of breast and ovarian cancers, Wilwerding said."

    But they end that with a negative by saying:

    "Yet health officials say not enough women breast-feed, and that of those who start, not enough continue it.

    According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 75 percent of mothers start out breast-feeding. But after six months only 43 percent are continuing, and only 13 percent of babies are exclusively breast-fed." -

    Maybe if society would be more open minded to breastfeeding, those numbers would go up!

    I'm in the 13 percent. I had two babies get major infections, one had ear infections. I was nursed exclusively and have major allergies and had ear infections. But I'm glad I breastfed my boys! There was a bond that cannot be explained to someone that has never had that experience.

    I didn't nurse my boy's in public because they were what I called, "Active Eaters." They never would have a blanket on top of them. I had to see that I was latching right with both of my children, so I didn't like being covered up either.

    Calming Your Baby Down

    When my boy's were babies I usually was the one that calmed them down.

    My husband is an excellent father. He would fly off the handle when Mica or Isaak would not stop crying. I'm talking about the nights where their cries were from teething or an ear infection. They would scream cry.

    There are ways to calm a fussy baby down. Not all of them are guaranteed to work for every baby, or every situation. These are tips for a baby that has colic, teething or has an ear infection.

    If you ever feel like something is really wrong call the doctor. Many doctor's offices have an on call nurse. Always check if they have a bad fever! That's how we caught our son Isaak's meningitis. If something is really wrong it's best to catch it early!

    Here Are a Few Ideas:
    1. Sing to them.
    2. Rock them.
    3. Burp your baby.
    4. Change their diaper. 
    5. Let them breastfeed. Try and nurse as close to upright as possible. If they are crying because they have an ear infection, you can make it worse by nursing them in the laying down position. Fluid will pool instead of drain.
    6. Walk them around.
    7. Make a "Shhh" sound in their ear. It reminds them of being in the womb.
    8. Vacuum. This has three pluses: It reminds them of being in the womb, you get them used to the vacuum and you get a clean house.
    9. Give them a warm bath. Some places have extra calming things you can put in their bath water. Click here for a recipe to make your own special oatmeal soothing solution.
    10. Take your baby for a short drive.
    11. Try gas drops. Sometimes they get air bubbles in their tummies from all the milk they drink.
    12. Give them a massage with baby lotion.
    13. Give them skin to skin contact. They love being close to mommy and daddy!
    14. If they are ready and able, give them their binki.
    15. Get them a baby vibrating chair. These are not that expensive, and are super great. I used mine a lot when I was in taking a shower. I love that they are so portable. I'd stick it right in the doorway.
    16. Put them in a baby swing.
    17. Have one parent take a steaming hot shower, and the other parent hold the baby in the bathroom. The sound of the shower mixed with the steam is great for relaxing.
    If you know of other tips I can add to this list, please comment, and I will add it.

    I'm going to throw this out there even though it's pretty obvious: NEVER SHAKE A BABY!

    INKtastic Review

    I was in the search for two very special baby gifts! INKtastic was the perfect place for two wonderful presents!

    My cousin is having her first. She is not finding out the sex of the baby. This made it hard to get her something because the gift had to be gender neutral. 

    INKtastic has a variety of onesies! I ended up going with a Charcoal Grey Infant Creeper for $13.99. Prices vary slightly by color choice. There is a selection of 22 colors. I needed a color that is gender neutral. A pink bow, or a ball cap will work great with grey.

    You can upload an image to preview on the onesie from their database, or a jpg. file from your computer. I chose to just add the type, "Baby McCann," which is my cousin's last name. They have 64 fonts to choose from. Choosing a font was my hardest decision.

    My favorite features of the Infant Creeper:

    • The snaps are easy to snap, yet not so easy that they will ware down.
    • I like all the color options!
    • The sizes of the Infant Creeper run from newborn to 24 months.

    My cousin will receive this gift later this month. I'm sure she'll be just as excited as I was when it was picked out!

    The second gift is for my sister's baby. We found out right after Christmas that her baby boy has Trisomy 18, also known as Edward's Syndrome. I wanted so bad to find her something with my nephew's name {Emerson} on it. This way they have something to remember him by. 

    The name Emerson is special to me because I helped pick it out.

    I decided to go with a light blue Cotton Baby Layette Sleeper for $14.99. The Sleeper had less colors to choose from then the Creeper featured above. It comes in light blue, pink and white.

    The upload options on the Sleeper are the same as the above Creeper.

    My favorite features of the Cotton Baby Layette Sleeper:

    • I love that the sleeves have folds to protect their hands. Babies seem to fly their arms about, and end up scratching their face. 
    • I also like the elastic bottom of the gown. With newborns it's nice to not have to unbutton and button a lot of snaps.
    • It just looks comfortable!
    My sister had a smile on her face when she opened Emerson's sleeper. :)

    My favorite features of INKtastic:

    • I'm a huge fan of personalization. I grew up with the name {Alissa}, so you can imagine that I didn't get very many personalized things.
    • The material was soft and washed up well! 
    • You can print on the front, left chest or back. Adding an additional design is $4.00 extra.
    • They have a lot of choices of things to print on! I featured two products from their infant selection, yet they have more. They also have child and adult products to customize.
    • Their prices are affordable.
