How much time does your baby spend with gadgets?
In this age of rampant technology, even the little ones want to keep up! However, we need to take certain precautions to safeguard our kids from the negative effects of screen time and excessive use of gadgets! Let’s take a look how-
.
✅My baby’s paediatrician recommends that babies and toddlers younger than 18 months should not be exposed to screens at all! As they grow older, they can gradually be exposed to using gadgets.
.
📵Excessive screen time affects social and emotional development in babies, whilst also affecting language development and sleep patterns.
.
🛂In our home, we limit our baby’s screen time to half an hour a day. A time limit inculcates a routine and discipline. Children over 2 should also have their screen time limited to about an hour.
.
👨‍👩‍👧What your child does with the gadgets also matters. We usually play videos on YouTube kids and are always with her to watch it and make it an interactive session. It is important to monitor what sort of content your child is consuming- the gadget should not be treated as an electronic babysitter! Delete or hide apps that may contain inappropriate content.
.
📻Why not try and switch to audio instead? Age appropriate audio books, podcasts, kids radio channels, audio stories, poems and songs can keep your child away from the screen, entertained and they might even learn something new!
.
I hope you and your baby will develop a healthy relationship with technology! Let us know about your experiences and how you balance the boon and bane that technology is in the comments below!🎭🎯

Fun fact!🎀
Our obsession with pink (pale pink, soft pink) isn’t just an obsession!
This specific color helps with the relieve of stress and anxiety and also represents love for ones self and love for others!
Mommy Matters goal is to let you know you matter as a mother and to not put your dreams on hold because of Motherhood! Spreading love and support and encouraging you along the way and creating opportunities for you to grow as women!
SN: it took us forever to make this heart! Lol

Allow me to re-introduce myself 😂😂
No but really! Took a while for me to really own a lot about myself so here goes!
I’m Antonia, a hairstylist, mother to two dope young men! Also the founder of Mommy Matters.
Mommy Matters is a brand with various platforms for moms to connect, support, and uplift each other in business , careers, life , and motherhood! And also give back to our community.
We do so by sharing our stories on Mommy Matters Wine Down podcast to let everyone know that we’re more than moms and we do dope things! Through our Facebook group where everything goes! (That’s also the name of it lol) And also through intimate events where we can come together laugh have a great time and make genuine connections, and connect with women in our community.
As i continue to grow myself (i have a long way to go) i realized that having the support of a good group of women and pouring into each other is vital for all of our success! Mommy Matters is to let everyone know that moms matter! Before the babies we had goals and after babies we still make them happen and I’m here to be moms biggest cheerleader!
Be sure to to subscribe to Mommy Matters Wine Down podcast on Apple podcast, and google play(no you don’t have to be a mom to listen and you can also have your husbaes tune in as we feature a whole series to get their perspective.)

Good morning!!(say it back ☺️)
When’s the last time you checked in with your tribe?! To make sure that they’re really okay and not telling you they’re okay just because.
Not going to lie i am that friend that will tell you I’m okay just because when honestly I’m not! I’m really hard on myself and can sometimes have a hard time expressing my thoughts! But i realized i really can’t keep doing this to myself so i made it a point to express that to my tribe that i need you to check on me like for real and to send some encouragement my way!
Having a solid group of women that build each other is important and needed! So check in with your tribe , schedule a call , lunch, or just time with them. Laugh, cry, hug, and encourage each other to keep going!!
Happy Monday ladies let’s make this week one of the best!!

Being away from home, I have been experimenting and tweaking the best of what east and west have to offer on caregiving. Since my friends and family have been inspired by the simple yet effective twists I've come up with, I decided it's time to share it with the world! Here at Giggles and Clicks, you can expect a blend of both the cultures, smart motherhood tips, simple mom hacks, fashion ideas for the mom & baby and a truckload of smiles and happiness!
