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.

Play Music for Baby

One of the best therapies for stress and depression is music therapy. With the powerful healing effects of music, it’s no wonder that playing music for your baby is calming and soothing, and aids in sleep.

When should you play music for your baby? You can start in the womb. Take some headphones and put them around your belly starting when you’re about five months along. Play some classical music or your favorite soft tunes. Like reading to your baby, a familiar song pattern will comfort baby in and outside the womb.

Choose the same song or two and play it for baby when she is in the outside world. She will come to associate this to being in the womb and it will calm and soothe her.

Some good sleepy time music selections for baby include:

  • Bach for Babies
  • Hum-a-byes
  • Disney Baby Lullaby

Besides being great at calming baby, music is also ideal for stimulating baby. Experts agree that babies under age 2 should not watch TV, but anything music-based is great for baby’s development. Check out these selections for your baby’s or toddler’s enjoyment.

  • The Mozart Effect
  • A Child's Celebration of Song
  • Buzz Buzz
  • Yummy Yummy – The Wiggles
  • Children's Favorites
