I’m so excited to share our must-have toddler items 12-18 months! Once Josie turned 1, it felt like a switch flipped and she was in full-on toddler mode. I swear she skipped walking and just went straight to running. The girl is busy. This stage has been all about reinforcing learning through real-world experiences.

Toothbrush and toothpaste – With all those new little chompers coming in, teeth-brushing is extra important. We’ve used the banana teething toothbrush as part of our evening routine since Josie first started getting teeth (around 9 months). Our pediatrician recommended finding a toothpaste with fluoride in it. We’ve been using this natural toothpaste which I purchase through Grove Collaborative but is also available at drugstores like Target. Our pediatrician also recommend the Tom’s brand.
Simple lunch and snack ideas – I do my best to continue introducing Josie to new foods, at least weekly. I personally avoid processed and sugary foods or juices at this age, and try to give her fresh fruits, dairy, and vegetables for snack times. I’m not perfect though and she does love her goldfish crackers, which I tend to reach for most if we’re on the go during snack time. I have this book but also have my eye on this one for easy and healthy lunch ideas.

What are your must-have toddler items 12-18 months? Even better, I would love to know what you’re loving for 18-24 months now that we’re entering into the next stage! I can hardly believe that my baby is on her way to TWO!
In the coming months, I totally have my eye on a toddler helper and just might pull the trigger on a pikler triangle. We had been thinking that would be her Christmas present this year, but she seems to be turning into a MONKEY these days, so I don’t know if we will make it that long!
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
