Toddler

Walking, talking, exploring new foods, and taking steps towards greater independence are just a few of the wonderful new things that you will witness as your infant becomes a toddler. Picky eating, raging tantrums, and separation anxiety are some of the less wondrous developments that you will experience. But don’t stress! We have answers to the most pressing questions that moms raising toddlers have. How much sleep does my toddler really need? How much television should I let my toddler watch? How do I potty-train my toddler? How can I keep my toddler’s tantrums under control? A toddler may test your limits but having (and consistently utilizing!) strategies that work can make a big difference. From 0-3 years old is a time of dramatic development for a child’s brain development – this is when he learns how to think, speak, learn, and reason. This early development needs to be nurtured and parents are critical to helping their toddlers get on track for developing healthy patterns that will lead to a lifetime of learning. What can you do with your toddler to foster his intellectual, social, and emotional development? What you can do to help lay down the foundation of success later in school? We have expert tips and advice that will equip you with the know-how to nurture your child’s development. No matter what your parenting style, challenges, or concerns, we can help you develop an approach that works for you and enables you to lay the groundwork for raising a healthy, happy tot.

Sprout Organic Foods Raspberry Fruity Yogurt Bites

Made without preservatives, artificial flavors and coloring, these yummy yogurt bites mean you don’t have to worry about your growing girl snacking on treats that aren’t good for her body -- or her mind. With five handy-dandy packs to a box, these super-portable sweet treats are easy to stash in your tote.

Bumpies say: “When my daughter started on solids, we tried these yogurt bites and she loved them! Now, she’s two and I was worried that she’d want to snack on chips or something unhealthy, but she surprisingly prefers the real mango slices,” says Maya B.*

“I always bring Sprouts with us when we’re going for a walk outside in the stroller or for long car rides. They’re soft enough for my son to chew without me watching and he loves knowing these baggies are ‘just for him,’” Kristin C. says.
