Parent Hacks


A full-color, boldly illustrated, how-to handbook of 148 exceedingly clever and easy-to-implement tips and shortcuts for parents. Some are practical, commonsense suggestions: Stash extra pacifiers in the corners of the crib so you don't have to conduct an emergency search for one in the middle of the night. Turn regular kids' underpants into training pants with a panty liner. Other hacks give new life to ordinary household items: An underbed storage box transforms into a portable (and cover-able) sandbox. A laundry basket in the bathtub keeps toys within reach for babies who have just learned to sit up. And others are just plain genius: At the beach, wrap your valuables in a clean disposable diaper to keep them securely hidden and unappealing to potential sticky-fingered beachgoers. Line the car seat with puppy training pads to ease cleanup from diaper blowouts. Put the ketchup UNDER the hot dog!

In addition to the detailed dispatches of genius, there are 23 additional “top 10” lists of subject-specific ideas and tips—“10 baby gear items you won't need” or “8 ways to keep kids entertained on a plane—without electronics”—and full-spread illustrations showing the extreme efficiency of multi-tasker "tools" that you might have around the house already. (Hint: Stock up on baby wipes, pool noodles, and zip-top bags.)
