I spend lots of time on my phone/computer and my toddler sees it, which makes her curious to take a look at what Mamí is doing. At first I thought it was cute, so I would play videos with songs such as “twinkle twinkle little star” then it got to the point to which I had to wait my turn to use my own phone/computer. Then I bought an iPad (Yes, I did. I know) to ensure we each had a device to use when needed. She uses the iPad about three times a day for about 10-15 minute spurts. My daughter is saying a few numbers, colors, letters and signs. I believe that it has to do with the use of these devices. The use of the technology came in handy at the grocery market when the terrible twos kicked in. I once said I wouldn’t be the kind of parent that hands their kid their phone to calm them down, look at me now (guilty). But it’s all with moderation. Be sure to revise the programs and apps you use for your little ones, kids can use them to their educational benefit. I enjoy having her use/watch Epic, Starfall, Simple Learning, Signing Time, and Alphablocks and of course some Disney Singing is a fave.

A really good friend of ours gave us as a present, the Flo Contact-Free Smart Thermometer from Zeraph and it is amazing! Before having Flo, I was using a regular thermometer and with a squirmy baby, waiting for her to keep the thermometer under her arm-pit until it beeped was pretty challenging. I was super excited to try it, love gadgets that make life easier and more techy. You just download the app on either your apple device or android and can keep track of your family’s temperature hassle and contact-free!! You simply sync it by pressing the only button, point to the forehead, press the button and done! I love how easy it is to read and in case you don’t know at what point to worry, it has a handy chart. I am a bit of a worry freak as a first time mom and tend to check my precious baby’s temperature at the very least once a week, and now I have a neat chart to see how she is doing. I would definitely recommend this to new parents, check it out!:
Flo – SMART THERMOMETER
Un muy buen amigo nuestro nos dio como regalo, el Flo- Termómetro libre de contacto de Zeraph y es increíble! Antes de tener el Flo, que estaba usando un termómetro regular y con un bebé inquieto, esperando a que se mantenga el termómetro debajo de la axila hasta que sonara era bastante agotador. Yo estaba súper emocionada de probar el Flo, me encantan los aparatos que hacen la vida más fácil! Basta con descargar la aplicación en su dispositivo, ya sea de apple o android y puede realizar un seguimiento de la temperatura de su familia sin problemas y sin contacto!! Le presionas al unico boton que tiene, esperas a que esten sincronizados, apuntas a la frente, presionas y ya! Me encanta lo fácil que es leer y, en caso de que no sé en qué momento hay que preocuparse, que tiene una práctica tabla. Soy un poco preocupada como madre por primera vez y tendía a comprobar la temperatura de mi precioso bebé al menos una vez por semana, y ahora tengo una tabla ordenada y puedo ver cómo le va. Sin duda recomendaría a los nuevos padres, Ve a ver que te parece!:
