If you're like me, it's hard to switch off news coverage of the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Irma's sweep of the entire state of Florida. On many occasions I've thought, "How can I help?" It all seems so overwhelming. Well here's a quick and easy way to send your love to the smallest victims of the destruction.

The Tampa, Florida-based nonprofit BabyCycle is in need of diapers, wipes, formula and other supplies to distribute throughout their state. All you need to do is donate funds to help BabyCycle help those in need. Here's a quick link to the donation page. I tried it, and my donation went through in under a minute.

Another way to help is to donate products via the BabyCycle Amazon wish list you can access here. Items purchased through the wish list will be shipped directly to a temporary dry, secure warehouse, and then distributed to families in need.

If you happen to be local and would like to donate, you can drop off items at the following physical address, marked to the care of JAS Energy: 6565 44th Street North, Ste 1005, Pinellas Park, FL 33781. You can view a full list of needed items, including diapers and Pull Ups, and baby food and diaper bags, here.

BabyCycle is partnering with Baby2Baby and the National Diaper Bank to meet the needs of as many families affected by Hurricane Irma as possible.

"Every little bit helps," said BabyCycle Founder, Torrie Jasuwan, in a press release. "These basics are necessities that no family should ever have to go without, especially following a natural disaster, when supplies are harder to come by."

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the families who are braving the clearly very difficult conditions in Florida!

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
