6 Tips to Staying Active with Young Children #MovingMoments

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Huggies and Latina Mom Bloggers. However, all opinions expressed are my own. Little Movers It’s amazing how fast babies grow, from being a dependent newborn to an independent toddler. Our little moon has started to try rolling over, and I bet with a blink of an eye, she will start crawling. Each of these moving moments mark a milestone in our babies lives that we will remember forever. With so much movement in babies lives, parents often look for a diaper that is comfortable, and flexible; the NEW! Huggies® Little Movers Diapers with Double Grip Strips gives baby a comfier fit over time than Pampers Cruisers+. The new Double Grip Strips – soft Velcro strips on the sides of front diaper panel for a comfy fit that lasts. We are always by our baby girl’s side cheering her on when she is attempting to roll! She also loves to bounce around in our arms while listening to some music.  It’s important to teach our children the value of an active lifestyle from  a young age and through action. We can’t only preach to lead an active life, we must LIVE it. 132 I’ve always led an active lifestyle, from a young age. My parents always made family time something active, like bike riding or going for walks. They also put us into soccer, swimming and other recreational activities. So it’s no surprise that I am now an active mom! Although my little moon is only 4 months old, I make sure we are active together. I like to go for walks, whether she is in her stroller or carrier. We also like to go to the pool and dance hehehe. Below are some of my personal tips on how you can stay active with young children:

  1. FAMILY  TIME: Pick a day of the week where the whole family can get out of the house to do something active, like swimming or a bike ride.
  2. BALLS:  Have some balls around the house/yard. Whether it be a basketball, soccer ball or volleyball..any type of ball really, so you can roll/pass/kick it around the yard.
  3. DOG: If you have a dog, take it our for a walk as a family.
  4. DANCE: Put on your favorite music and just dance in your house. Grab your kids, partner and ENJOY! Make it a fun family affair, we usually get some laughs because of our funky moves hahaha.
  5. FRIENDS: Invite a friend (and their kids if they have any) to go for a walk.
  6. CLASS: Take a class together, like swimming or pottery.

    Well I’d have to say, so far the most moving moment is the moment I first met each of my kids.

    Great tips! Ever since my little guy was tiny we have always had dance parties together, and he has been known to just break out and bust a move in the middle of the store when a good song comes on now.
