Your toddler can be over stimulated or confused by too many toys offered all at once. If you have a lot of toys for toddlers out all the time, try packing half or a third away in containers and rotate the containers each week or every few days depending on how much time you spend at home.

Here are some things you can enjoy doing with your toddler or encouraging them to do on their own:
Link-up and stacking toys like trains, blocks and toys with knobs and buttons to push;
Dress ups – have a box full of hats, shoes, bags, coats, ponchos skirts and pants for your toddler to pull out and put on as many times as she wants during the day;
Suitable toddler books have pictures and objects, animals and family photos to identify;
Give your toddler the opportunity to choose what things are the same, such as colour and shape. You can use this as a game when packing away toys together before rest time;
Encourage your toddler to join in with household activities, such as sweeping the floor, bathing the dog, gardening or washing the dishes;
Help your toddler learn space awareness with jumping in and through hoops;
Encourage creeping and crawling along an obstacle course;
Roll down a gentle incline together;
Throw and catch a ball together – use different sizes, textures and weights.
We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies.
During pregnancy and after delivery, a mother’s diet should contain sufficient key nutrients. Professional guidance can be sought on diet and the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle feeding, could reduce the supply of breast milk. Once reduced, it is difficult to re-establish. Infant formula should be prepared and used as directed. Unnecessary or improper use may present a health hazard. Social and financial implications, including the cost of providing formula until 12 months of age, should be considered when choosing how to feed infants.
We recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for some parents. No matter your feeding choice, Nestlé Baby & me is here to share the latest information to help you feel supported and confident on your parenthood journey.
As every child’s development is different, be sure to consult with your health care professional for individual advice about feeding your baby.
