Now baby girl is a toddler, yes she is walking, falling, toddling about, I thought it was about time I looked into travel tips for toddlers. These can be tips for travelling an hour to see family and friends, or even travelling abroad on holiday.
Last year we travelled up country – from Cornwall to Derbyshire to see family. It was pretty hard going with an exclusively breast-fed 5 month old but we did it. So is it easier travelling with a toddler?
Hopefully it will be if you bear in mind my essential top tips for travelling with toddlers.
It’s been a while since I did the last review of baby girl, in fact that was her 9 month review. Later on I will let you know how we got on at the health visitor.
But first we come a long way since she was 9 months old in terms of her development. The biggest thing I’m so excited to share with you that I have to blurt out first is that she took her first few steps unaided!!! In New Years Eve as well!!! A fantastic start to 2017!!!!
She had been building up to it for a few weeks. Cruising along the sofas gaining confidence all the time. I was sitting on the sofa opposite to my husband and she wanted to come over to me I could see it! So instead of holding on to everything to get to me she had her little arms out for balance and took those precious first 3 steps all by her self. We were so proud and so excited that both of us got to see her do it for the first time.
As each day goes past now she really is gaining her confidence and is finding herself that I know in no-time she will be running around.
So now I have a toddler!!
There are lots of reasons why you should allow your toddler to spend time in the garden. For one thing, the fresh air can be good for them. The open space allows them to run around and play without restriction. Also, you don’t have to worry about spills and marks when they are playing around in the garden. To make the garden extra fun for your child, here are some things that you can add that your toddler will love. Just be careful to ensure they are safe, and you keep an eye on your child while they are doing the below!
Making your home safe for your beloved little ones (something a genius parent aptly titled ‘toddlerproofing’) can sometimes seem like an endless task. Just when you’re sure that you have all grounds covered, something else ends up being a problem and you’re running to the first aid box for the third time in a week yet again.
According to Safe Kids Worldwide, more than 3 million kids get hurt at home, the one place they are supposed to be safe from the world.
There are plenty of simple ways to ensure your children are safe from injury and it doesn’t have to be mission impossible when trying to create a healthy home environment.
Follow these fairly easy preventative steps and you’ll be well on your way to being parent of the year.

A while back I saw an advert on Instagram from Childs Farm who were looking for Brand Ambassador’s. As a new mummy to nearly 6 month old now, I love to find out and discover new brands that I’d not heard of. Childs Farm was one of these. I love natural products that contain no nasties or are not harsh on baby’s skin. Oh and smell nice too!
So before I applied, I looked up Childs Farm and read up on what they are about.
