Toddler falls when to worry?

Toddler falls when to worry?

Toddler falls often: Toddlers often run without fear or thought and fall. I would worry if yours falls when walking normally, or with an abnormal stance when running or appears to be unsteady when standing. I would not worry if the falls are associated with running without fear and then tripping by chance. If worried, have your doc check the legs and running in the docs office.

When can my toddler use a spoon?

When can my toddler use a spoon?

9-18 months: From your spoon to her spoon: You can help your baby extend her interest in spoon foods while she is learning finger foods by 1) giving her a small spoon of her own; 2) Alternating bites (she feeds herself and then a separate spoon you are holding; 3) Putting some food on the spoon for her - so she can get to the good part fast. Learning a spoon may take months, but looking back it will seem quick.

How can I get my toddler to eat more?

How can I get my toddler to eat more?

Provide food: As a parent this is really hard to do. Your job as a parent is to provide the food options and meals. It is the baby's decision what they are going to eat! The best way to get a toddler to eat veggies is to emphatically eat them yourself! Toddlers really don't gain much weight compared to babies, either, so it is normal for them to not eat much. His growth curve will let you know if hes on track

Self definition: Many children when they first develop a strong sense of their own identity will identify things they like as "mine" with emphasis. This can go on for some months but eventually will disappear and they better distinguish what is truly theirs from other things in their environment.

At what stage does a toddler get spoilt?

At what stage does a toddler get spoilt?

Typically-developing: 6-mo.- olds repeat behaviors that elicit positive or negative attention from their parents, so getting angry at them or giving them what they want make any behavior persist. If you consistently give immediate rewards/praise, for behaviors you want & ignore behaviors you don't want, your toddler will not be "spoiled". Learn how to use time-out effectively for 18 mos. & older. See comments below.

How to handle toddler safety at bed time?

How to handle toddler safety at bed time?

Toddler bed: Once a child starts climbing from the crib, injuries from falls can occur. Most toddler beds are age approved for 18 months and up. When introducing the bed, be sure to check the room for things that could be swallowed, tangled in or fallen over/in. A good quality baby gate at the door of the room is a good idea to prevent some of the inevitable wandering that will occur. Good luck!!

How do I get my toddler to eat vegetables?

How do I get my toddler to eat vegetables?

Keep trying: Veggies are an important part of a well balanced diet, so its important toddlers eat them. Keep trying. Let your child be part of the cooking process (even if its just giving them some of the food to feel and taste raw) and let them choose which veggie to have for dinner. Puree veggies into sauces (where their strong flavor is a bit disguised) or try them raw with fun dips (hummus, yogurt, etc).
