“Yuck, I’m not eating that”… I’m sure you have heard your child say this on more than one occasion. Your child is growing up and developing their own ideas and interests on what types of foods they are most likely to eat and enjoy. With all the fast food gimmicks shown on television lately as well as peer pressure from school and popular trends, it can be difficult to establish healthy eating habits with your school age child. Trying to convince your child to eat their vegetables isn't going to always work. The trick is to make healthy choices more appealing.
As your baby becomes a toddler there are certain situations that, as a parent, you need to deal with. One of these situations is feeding problems. All of a sudden your child will become picky about what they eat. One of the most typical habits that begin to emerge is one day, your toddler is enjoying a particular food and then the next day for no reason, they reject the same food. Don’t worry… it’s not your cooking… it is all a part of growing up.
Congratulations...your toddler is growing up! This is such a big milestone for your child to achieve. The toilet training phase is such an exciting part of you and your toddlers life. Tt can get messy at times during the beginning stages and there will be a fair share of “accidents”. Once you have trained your toddler to use the toilet, it's a great relief! No more nappies to change and best of all you don't have to spend money buying them!
It's so exciting to notice your baby's very first tooth coming through. Most babies “grow” their first tooth at around 4 -6 months of age. Sometimes a tooth can appear without any warning signs at all and sometimes you may notice a small bulge on the gum or a red patch on the gum or cheek, followed in a couple of days by a tooth. However some babies can feel great discomfort during teething,they may be grizzly, wake in the night, dribble more than usual or cry during feeding.
