22 Month Old

Got a picky eater? Most toddlers do get proper nutrition when their parents serve a variety of foods -- even if it doesn’t always seem that way. But, unlike adults who often eat out of habit or boredom, toddlers only tend to eat when they’re hungry. And remember: New foods are scary to your toddler. So manage your expectations; it may take inspecting new foods several times before he’ll actually taste them -- so don’t force it.

Your Toddler at 22 Months

  • Your toddler is the center of the universe -- his own. Kids this age are rarely great at taking turns and can seem downright inconsiderate. Keep your cool and model good behavior. He’ll catch on, oh, in a year or so.
  • Try not to freak if your toddler starts fondling his private parts. This is normal for both boys and girls at this stage and isn’t cause for concern. (If you’re in public, distract.)

Toddler Know-How at 22 Months

Turn on the TV or have your spouse read a book aloud while you brush your toddler’s tangled hair -- distractions are key.
