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.
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!
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.
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?

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 Bonding: Document Those Moments

Babies and toddlers can be very tiring, especially that first year. Lack of sleep, busy schedules, and crying babies are enough to overwhelm anybody. It’s easy for that baby memory book to get lost in the shuffle of everyday life. If you don’t have time to track when Junior got his first tooth, document it in pictures or video instead.

It’s never been easier to document our children’s lives. Now with scrapbooking and Digital Photography, catching memories is fun!


Scrapbooking has made a comeback in American culture. For those of us who have even an ounce of creativity, this method of recording our family’s lives is an art form. Scrapbooking is kind of like sticking your photos in a photo album, but much more artistic and warm. Think quotes and textures, materials and mementos.

If you are interested in finding out more about scrapbooking, check out these books on scrapbooking and visit your local craft store for all the supplies you will need.

Digital Photography

Digital Photography has never been cheaper. You can find a decent digital camera for under $200, and developing film is no longer needed. Now you can either download pictures and order prints online from sites like

OR you can buy a Photo Printer and print your own pictures at home. Take these prints and put them into your scrapbook!

Digital Movies

Another way to document baby’s first year (and subsequent years) is by way of digital movie. Most Digital Cameras have a short video setting, where you can take videos of baby’s first steps. At the end of the year, take your collection of digital photos and short movies and make a DVD of baby’s first year set to music. It’s that easy.


So in between feedings and diapers, remember that this time with your little baby will pass quickly. Soon, she’ll be off to the prom, and you’ll have the pictures to prove it!
