“Parent Hacks: 134 Genius Shortcuts for Life with Kids” (Workman, $12.95) by Asha Dornfest is so full of creative ideas that it’s sure to be a blessing for anyone raising a baby or little kid.
The book has clever tricks like protecting the car seat from diaper blowouts with a puppy training pad; using blue painter’s tape to indicate “play zones” on the floor; clipping your baby’s fingernails while it’s in a front-facing carrier (the kind you wear); making a blackout window shade from a vinyl tablecloth – and much more.
