Self-esteem and personal image can both be affected by a child’s triumphs. Letting them feel like they are big helpers can have a long-term affect on their self esteem. Teaching responsibility will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Buying baby hangers may seem like an obscure way to boost self esteem, but making the chore of laundry easier for little hands makes it possible for your child to help.

I first got to play this game at the baby shower of my friend, Grace. And when we got to play it, we couldn’t get enough of it! It involves two sets of trump baby clothes (and I mean a LOT of them), two life sized dolls that are about as big as actual babies and of course a timer. The players are divided into two teams to compete against each other. While the timer is set to about 30 seconds (its the host’s call how long the entire thing should last) both teams will struggle against one another to dress the baby in the best, most complete and neatest way that they can. Their final products will be judged on the three categories. The team that does it best after the allotted time wins!
You can set this activity up in a corner of the room and guests can go design an undershirt or nightgown for the new baby. Lay out several tubes of fabric paint; puffy paint is fun. Let the guest go wild drawing fun designs or writing funny sayings on the clothes. The new mommy will laugh every time she dresses the new darling in the funny duds.
You need to realize that babies need to be changed often, when your clothes dirty. If you choose the child should have an elegant way zipper and buttons that are easy to undo. Do not be attracted to clothing that is complicated and cumbersome straps, buttons or zippers that you and your baby while changing ease.
Buying infant hangers or baby hangers for your child can motivate them to love the responsibility of putting their own clothes away. Kid sized hangers will help them to realize that helping is easy and fun.
