I’ve talked a lot about Darah being in daycare. I know that not everyone who reads this blog has a little one in daycare (perhaps one parent is staying at home, or perhaps you have an in-home caregiver who comes over to watch the baby, or perhaps you are a lucky one who gets to take your little love over to Grandma’s house!).
In any case, I believe that as your child approaches 1, investing in some I.D. labels for kids is a really good idea. If they go to daycare or a Mom’s day out, I PROMISE you that anything you send with them that isn’t labeled will get lost. It’s just going to happen. I have been able to hang on to all of Darah’s pacifiers, bottles and food containers successfully because they are labeled. And using a magic marker isn’t going to cut it, because it comes off in the dishwasher.
One company that offers top notch labeling options is Kiddo Tags. These tags come with detailed instructions for applying to surfaces. The instructions also come with a phone number, should you have any questions. Gabby, the owner, seems to be really dedicated to quality customer service, which is awesome!
One of the things that blew me away was how fast the tags arrived. They were in my mailbox 3 days after I placed the order. No joke. Now that’s amazing service, folks! We have put our tags through the dishwasher numerous times, now, and they are holding up beautifully! I highly recommend Kiddo Tags for any parent who doesn’t want to lose all the stuff they send with their child to daycare/preschool/playdates/etc.
