Tantrums are all part and parcel of your toddler growing up and trying to express emotions. But knowing this doesn’t help you deal with them in the moment. Here’s our tips on how to cope with three common triggers – morning, bedtime and when you’re out-and-about.
With all that crawling and toddling around, your little one can build up quite an appetite. At this age children should be eating every two to three hours, which works out as three meals a day and two healthy snacks in-between. A hungry toddler is a grumpy toddler, so you’ll want something quick and easy to make and pop in your bag while you’re out and about. But how do you keep tiny tummies topped up between meals without resorting to unhealthy snack foods?
Planning a day trip with your little one? Somehow, no matter how many bags you pack, something always gets forgotten. Fret not! We’ve pulled together a handy checklist, so you can head out feeling prepared.
Your toddler is getting more grown-up every day and you’ll love to see all their new-found skills. But they’ll still need lots of cuddles and reassurance to give them the confidence to keep on exploring.
