Helpful Tips for Moms on the Go

For busy moms there always seems to be something that needs to be done.  However, finding the time to do it all can be a challenge.  Have you ever found yourself out at a restaurant or doctor’s office, and you need to take your child to the bathroom for a change and you find there are no diapers in your bag?   Do you have a back-up plan if your child has an accident and soils their pants while you are out?  Have you ever thought about what might happen if you get into an accident and you are unable to speak and tell the EMS personnel about your child’s medical condition?

Well here are some tips to avoid an embarrassing or unforeseen situation:

  • Right as you return home from being out, as you clean out the used bottles and dirty bibs.  Take a few minutes to restock your diaper bag with the necessary items: diapers, wipes, plastic utensils and bibs.  If you get yourself into a routine doing this, you should never find yourself without the necessary baby supplies in your diaper bag.
  • Why not create a small emergency kit for your car.  You may find that you need to take a quick trip to the store and do not feel like bringing your diaper bag.  Accidents happen, especially for our little ones.  If you have a small bag filled with wipes, diapers and an even extra change of clothes, these may come in handy someday.  Why put your wet child into the car seat.  You will now have to clean the car seat cover, their clothes and they will be uncomfortable driving home.
  • Take a small index card and right down pertinent medical information about your child (diagnosis, medicines taken, dosage, physicians name, etc) that would be helpful for EMS personnel to care for your child, in the event of an accident and you are unable to speak for your child.  Take this card, laminate it and tape it to your child’s car seat, on the side that would be visible when personnel would open the door.
  • Check out My Precious Kids website for the child car seat id tag that you can fill in and tape to your child’s car seat.  My Precious Kid at http://www.mypreciouskid.com/products.html

Tip: You may not think that you need to sanitize the inside of your diaper bag.  However, studies have shown that bacteria can grow on the inside of your bag especially with dirty clothes, wet diapers or spilled bottles.  Take an anti-bacterial cloth and wipe your diaper bag inside and out.

Ways To Conquer The Clutter

As much as we try to stay on top of all the appointments and paperwork we receive everyday with the use of our PDA’s, calendars and files; new things enter our lives every day.  If you are not careful, these things can soon become clutter.  Here are a few tips to stay cleverly organized:

  • Make it work for you.  Make your organization process work for you and your style.  Do not create an elaborate organizing system that will take you longer to understand then to use.  Make it convenient for you to be able to put things back where they belong.
  • Put big projects on your calendar. Let’s say you have a big project that you want to accomplish that week.  For example, it may be cleaning out your closet or garage.  Look at your calendar and see what a good day to schedule that is.  If you notice that the day you chose has other appointments scheduled for that day, schedule it for another day.  Why?  If you are pulled away throughout the day for other things, you will end up with more disarray then you initially started because of an incomplete task.
  • Schedule some catch up time.  If you are noticing that you are starting to fall behind on certain tasks, schedule a day to play catch up.  Work only on that task until you have accomplished what you set out to do.
  • Complete tasks.  If you have several incomplete projects, they will start to weigh on you, causing you to get depressed and wondering how you will be able to get to it all.  By completing each task you start, you will begin to feel energized and a sense of accomplishment.

Organize Yourself and Your Thoughts

The way you are feeling that day, can affect what actions you decide to do.  If you are feeling overwhelmed or confused about a certain project or task, you start to become stressed and therefore put off completing that task.

I would suggest making a plan.  Write out what parts of that task you can easily accomplish, so you can start to feel a sense of achievement.  This will help you to feel more empowered to complete that task.  Here is a quote to think about when you find yourself in this situation.  Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.” by William James. 

Challenge for the week:  Take those appointment cards that are either in your wallet or taped on your refrigerator and enter them on to your calendar.  Nothing is more frustrating than a missed appointment.
