When your child reaches the age of 12 months, they have arrived at toddlerhood. They may resemble mini-adults with big personalities and lofty opinions that may consist of the word “No”. They are, however, also incredibly lovable and great to be around.
This is the introduction to a series of articles entitled “What To Expect With A Toddler”. You can look forward to learning about specific toddler topics, including:
Milestones — the journey from walking to running, many more words and a ton of babbling
Difficulties — teething, being gentle while playing, and temper tantrums
Sleeping — escaping from their cot and transitioning from a cot to a toddler bed
Eating — planning meals and picky eating
Development and confidence — coordination with colouring and other crafts, separation anxiety and overall awareness
The series of articles will also be broken up further into these age groups:
- 15 months
- 18 months
- 24 months
- 36 months
The first 12 months of your baby’s life was an exciting, sometimes exhausting journey. Now you are in for some truly fascinating developments.
