Health & Care

Your two year old is more active than ever and is exploring everything around her. She is also running, jumping, and working up a sweat! There are a number of tips and care routines you do to help your two year old stay clean, healthy, and happy from head to toe! When it comes to feeling under the weather, your two year old will start letting you know how she feels and point to what hurts. She may point to her tummy if she is constipated or pull on her ear if she has an ear infection. Other times, changes in your child can be an indication that she has a fever or is in pain. Irritability can affect not just her mood but also her schedule. It can also affect her sleeping or eating habits.
