Behavior
Parenting a toddler can be challenging, to say the least. From the depths of separation anxiety to the joys of learning new words, this can be an anxious and exciting time. Finding the perfect balance of showing love and enforcing boundaries will result in your toddler's ability to thrive.
Bonding
Every age is a great age, but the time your child is a toddler is special. This is the age he learns to walk, he learns to talk, and he begins to explore the world around him. You're all sure to have a great time watching him interact with the world around him. Enjoy!
Nutrition
Notably, many toddlers take a dive in the quality of their nutrition after introduced to finger foods. Many toddlers today are consuming high sugar juices and high fat, low nutrition foods. Find out how to get your toddler the vitamins and minerals he needs to thrive.
Play
Toddlers love to play, especially with their mommies! You're their favorite playmate, because you're their favorite person. So go outside, or get down on the floor and play with your toddler. The memories you create will last forever.
Potty Training

Is your toddler ready to be rid of diapers? More importantly, are you ready?

Safety
Keeping our children safe is top priority of moms everwhere. Yet, sometimes it is difficult to know what resources are out there to help us accomplish our goals.
Toddler’s Health
Now that your toddler is mobile, it is sometimes harder to gauge his colds, viruses, and the seriousness of injuries. He is often too busy to notice. Luckily by now, you know your child well enough to determine when he's ready for a time out.
 
 
Toddler Health: Caring for Teeth


Once your baby’s teeth come in, you should begin to promote good oral hygiene habits. This minimizes your child’s chances of cavities and keeps his mouth healthy and clean.

  • Don’t let your baby fall asleep with his bottle. The milk will pool in his mouth and result in cavities. If he is already in this habit, replace the milk with water until you can wean him off his nighttime bottle.
  • Brush his teeth. If he just has one or two teeth so far, use your finger or a baby washcloth to clean his teeth and gums. Be sure to use toothpaste developed just for toddlers. Do not let your baby swallow fluoride toothpaste. When your baby gets his molars, you can begin to use his first baby tooth brush.
  • Take him to the dentist when he is about three years old. The dentist will check for any decay and will direct him in proper tooth brushing techniques.
