How to wean a toddler from bottle feeding

Bottle feeding a baby is a time-consuming and stressful task. You must monitor your milk production, your baby's feeding schedule, and other factors. Once you start weaning your toddler from the bottle, it can be equally as stressful—but for very different reasons! Some mothers feel bad about denying their toddlers something they adore so much, while others worry that if a bottle isn't around at all times, their children won't get enough food or liquids. What if, then, I could prove to you that things don't have to be this way? That there are actually ways to help you through the process? Be consistent While consistency is important for all aspects of parenting, it's especially important when weaning a toddler from bottle feeding. While your child may be ready to make the transition, she might not want to let go of her beloved bottle—and that's okay!

Cleaning 101: The Electric Fan

Due to the high cost electricity, most of us use an electric fan instead of an air-conditioning system to save on electric usage. Now that the hot summer months are fast approaching, this cooling device will definitely be working double time. However, as it helps air to circulate it also acquires dust along the way. Regular cleaning will make it work efficiently and at the same time extend its lifespan.

It is recommended to clean it on a weekly basis. Here are suggested ways on how to clean an electric fan. 

Make sure to unplug the fan from the power socket before cleaning and removing the brackets of the fan grill. Take off the grill and wash it with soap and water. Dry it with a clean cloth after washing.

Remove the cage and the fan, but if you do not know how to disassemble the cage, do not  forcibly remove it, just wipe it with a damp microfiber cloth to take away the dust. The fan blades on the other hand can be easily removed, do wash it with soap and water and dry it with a clean cloth.

Let the parts dry before putting them back together.

If the blades and grill are made of stainless steel, you may use a vacuum cleaner, blow it backwards, which is the opposite direction that the air normally blows, or you may use a cloth to wipe and remove the dust.

Oiling the fan motor will also do good on your fan. Never immerse or clean the motor in water.

Lastly, it is important to give your fan a half-an hour break daily to allow the motor to cool down to prevent damage.  Moreover, unplug the unit when not in use.
