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.

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 Safety: My Toddler Falls All the Time. How Do I Protect Him?

The average toddler falls up to 38 times a day. That being said, when your little one starts to toddle around, you will notice more bumps & bruises than usual. Bruised heads and legs are most common. With your toddler falling that much, what can you do to protect your baby?

  • Cover all sharp table corners with foam or soft cloths.
  • Get some good floor padding for your baby’s common play areas.
  • Get your toddler wearing shoes and give him some practice before he takes it outside.

As a parent, you want to protect your baby from any injury or pain. Just remember, in order for him to be steady on his feet, he must fall down first. That’s why our toddlers’ bones are flexible and their center of gravity is low. They were made to fall. Moms were made to give them a kiss for comfort and a bandage for the road. Point being, your toddler will fall and he will hurt himself. All you can do is keep him out of real danger and kiss him when he hurts. Keep up the good work Mom!
