"Necessity is the mother of invention."
As a modern mom in this fast-changing world, I am very thankful for these very simple yet useful inventions. If these things hadn't been invented, I cannot imagine the discomfort or difficulty I could experience.
(These are in no particular order.)
This is a great invention! I remember when we were young my mother would soak cotton balls in water and use it to wipe my sister's behind to clean it. Imagine if I had to tote around wet cotton balls and use it when we go out. It's very inconvenient and not very hygienic. Wet tissues are not only useful for cleaning my baby's bum but are also useful for wiping her hands or face. I also find it handy when I had to wipe anything my daughter is going to sit on or touch.
I have to thank establishments especially malls for installing changing tables in their restrooms. It just makes it so much easier for moms like me to change diapers. I also love that there's a safety belt to hold the baby in place. Now I don't have to change my baby's diaper on a table, a bench or even the floor in public.
Diapers are not only very convenient because they can be easily purchased in groceries but also because it saves you a lot of time doing the laundry. It is also very convenient especially when we travel or go out. I don't have to worry about leaks or poop explosions.
Grocery carts with seats
It's so difficult to do grocery shopping when carrying a little tot around. That's why I am so thankful for shopping carts that have seats for babies. It just makes grocery shopping more convenient and fun.
High chairs have made dining out enjoyable for us even if it's just for a few minutes. I am able to enjoy my food without having someone crying or squirming on my lap. It is actually one of the first things I look for in restaurants. If there are no high chairs I ask my husband if we can eat somewhere where there are high chairs. This may just be a very ordinary thing but it has been very helpful to me as a mom because I NEED to enjoy my meal sometimes :)
Thank God for these because as a mother, I never want my daughter to get sick. Immunizations give me some peace of mind knowing that my daughter is safer and healthier.
How about you, mommies? What inventions are you thankful for as a mom?
Thanks for dropping by! :)
