My husband and I recently passed another relationship test, our first road trip together! It was also our first road trip with a toddler (17 months old). She did surprisingly well. I want to share with you what worked to keep her (mostly) happy and occupied on our drive.
Traveling with a toddler is tough. They’re too old to sleep the whole drive but too young for many car games. They also don’t understand why they are trapped in a car seat for hours on end.
As a mom, I am always looking for a new way to entertain my toddler! They have the attention span of a fly so having something new is key. Here are 3 quick and easy DIY toddler activities you can make for FREE from items you already have at home or by spending just a few dollars at the dollar store. These activities will also help them to practice their motor development skills. If you have a 1-2 year old give these a try!
My little girl was a great eater, we did Baby Led Weaning and she would eat anything…until about 12 months. Somewhere around there she started getting picky. Meat especially became a total no go. Didn’t matter what type of meat it was, she was not going to eat it. From being in multiple mom groups I’ve learned that this is a common occurrence. But it still doesn’t make mealtime any easier! Or make me worry less about whether she’s getting proper nutrition.
When should my baby walk you may be asking yourself. Or perhaps your question revolves around another developmental milestone like sitting, crawling, or talking. As moms, we become major worry warts and comparison queens. Is my kid eating enough, talking enough, sleeping enough? Why is everyone’s kid but mine sitting already, crawling already, walking already? We all want what’s best for our kids. But, we’re also putting way too much stress on ourselves and our kids way too early.
Spring has officially sprung! It’s the time of year when we literally dust off the old and bring in the new. But a good dusting isn’t all our homes need. It’s also the time of year that we let go of old ways of thinking and start to pay more attention to our health. I’ve partnered with Anneliese Wells, mom, health advocate, and clean beauty ambassador for this four part series on how to spring clean the products you use to make your house a more non-toxic space for you and your kids.
