  • We all love to discover easier ways of doing things especially when we moms have a lot of tasks to do in so little time. Often, we just need someone to point it out to us and then try it if it works. While there are many genius products in the market today to help parents, not all moms have the extra funds to spend. Here are three hacks that can cut your expenses.

    Hands-free breast pump bra

    Sometimes, we need to multi-task to cross out more tasks on our to-do list. If you don't want to spend or just need it for an emergency, try this idea from Gabriella Davi-Khorasanee of the blog Lil' Miss. She shared how she was able to create her DIY hands-free breast pump bra using an old sports bra. 

    Here's what you need to do: Choose an old sports bra that still fits snugly -- not too tight or loose. Try it on and mark the position of your nipples. Then, take it off and then make tiny snip, about 1/4 of an inch wide, in the fabric where your nipples would be. Stretch out the hole you made to accommodate the breast shields, and you're ready to pump!

    Cherise McClimans of Blogging Beauty Secrets had a genius idea of keeping her kids safe when traveling in a crowded place. While we implore than you hold your kids' or keep an eye on them all time when traveling, it's always better to have a backup to make sure we cover all our bases.

    Non-slip DIY toddler shoes

    Jacinda Boneau of the blog Pretty Prudent shared a pretty nifty trick to prevent her daughter from slipping. If you buy shoes bigger than your child's actual shoe size, you might want to put grips at the bottom if your tot's pair doesn't have them. Young kids outgrow their shoes fast, but we want to make the most out one pair para sulit.

    Barefoot is best when your child is still learning how to walk. Non-slip shoes help when he's already comfortable walking without assistance, If your cute toddler shoes happen not to have grips at the bottom, just glue gun some patterns (or in this case, the child's name) onto it and let it dry. See, so easy! Why buy when you can make!
