5 Things You Need to Label if you have a Toddler

I didn’t realize how important it is to label things until my daughter became a toddler. Before, I was able to keep everything contained in one place and I knew which items were mine. Now, she runs everywhere and its easier to lose things. I thought I was pretty smart and frugal by using peel and stick labels I printed at home or by writing with a permanent marker. However, the labels I printed at home fell or tore off quickly and the permanent marker wasn’t easy to read.

Recently, I placed an order with personalized labels by Label Daddy. They are fantastic! Label Daddy labels are durable, washable, practical, easy to use, and cute! Choosing a design was difficult but placing the order was easy! There were so many characters and designs to choose from: sports teams, cartoon characters, action characters, as well as plain or generic. Out of the 18 variations of Minnie Mouse, I decided on the one you see in the picture above.

I’ve only had the labels a few days, but I’m sticking them on everything. My daughter doesn’t go to daycare or preschool yet, but we take classes and are always out and about. Last week, while we were at the park after class, a little girl ran off (but thankfully, came back) with my daughter’s lunch box. I really like the bright, easy to identify design of the labels.

Here are the five item categories that are on my MUST LABEL list!

1. Lunch Box, Drink, snack, and food containers

Lunch boxes, sippy cups, and snack containers are the obvious ones to label, but are also the most necessary. Label Daddy labels work great on these because they withstand condensation that accumulates on cups as well as daily washing.

2. Strollers, Push-cars, and Scooters

We have the push-car in the photo above. Apparently, so does everyone else. I tried putting cute glittery letters on the front spelling out my daughter’s name, but that didn’t last long because she pulled them off one by one. Now, I have a Label Daddy label on the back of the car AND underneath. Why both places? Because that way, if mine goes missing and I suspect someone took it but removed the easily visible sticker, I can look underneath to verify. A friend of mine had hers sitting in front of her apartment on the second floor of their building, and it went missing recently. So sad for her that it happened. Keep your valuable toys indoors!

3. Jackets and Sweaters

Winter is coming. Even in Southern California it gets a little cold. That means adorable jackets, coats, and sweaters that you don’t want to lose. Label Daddy size extra-small labels are perfect size for children’s clothing tags. There are thorough instructions included with each Label Daddy order on how to best adhere the labels to clothing.

4. Toys for the sandbox, beach, and park

It’s nice when kids bring their toys to share. With Label Daddy labels, you can clearly identify your kid’s toys and have an easier time getting them back. Label Daddy labels are meant to be washed, so they will withstand whatever comes their way.

5. Your Smartphone and other Handheld Electronics

Label Daddy labels are good if you have one kid, great if you have more than one! Label Daddy labels can help resolve conflicts between siblings  with more than one of the same item. I rarely give my daughter my smartphone, but when I do, I know it might end up missing. I haven’t ordered labels with my own name yet, but I probably should. In the meantime, my phone will have hers.

Helpful Tip from a fellow mom: In lieu of using your child’s full name, consider putting your last name, the word “mom” and your phone number. That way your item has a better chance of getting returned.
