You're already much closer than you think to doing everything you can to support your infant or toddler.

Life throws curveballs all the time, and so do our children. The minute we feel like we "figured it out," they change.

Here's the thing... everything you need and all the ways you can support your child most are already right in front of you. They don't cost anything. They don't require you to purchase the most expensive, newfangled toys.

Infants and toddlers learn through observation, imitation and interaction.

That means that once your child's physical needs are met, he/she needs:

  • To be able to watch you and hear you
  • Space to move around
  • Someone with whom he/she can interact

That's it. The specific ways you decide to do all of that are up to you, but I'll be in your inbox each week to offer you new ideas to integrate into your daily activity.

Nobody wants a bunch of STUFF cluttering their inbox. I promise to deliver useful information on a weekly basis, based on your child's age!

FREE.

Why? Because we all need this information, and we all need community.
