Summary "Parent Hacks presents 134 ingenious tips and shortcuts for simplifying life with little kids, allowing the whole family to take a deep breath and have more fun. What's a parent hack? It can be as simple as putting the ketchup under the hot dog--minimizing the mess. Strapping baby into a forward-facing carrier when you need to trim her fingernails. Stashing a wallet and keys in a clean disposable diaper at the beach-who would ever poke through what looks like a used Pamper? Using painter's tape to baby proof outlets while traveling. On every page find unconventional solutions for those everyday challenges arranged by category from Pregnancy & Postpartum through Sleep, Food & Mealtime, Travel & Outings, and more. Plus dozens of useful lists-8 Ways to Keep Kids Entertained on a Plane, 13 Uses for Non-Slip Shelf Liners, the unexpected practical sides of pool noodles, zip-top plastic bags, and over-the-door shoe organizers"-- Provided by publisher.
