1. We are currently trying to find a carrier that we like as Piglet has outgrown his wrap. We introduced a cup at 6m and Piglet loves it. I tried him with the munchkin 360 this morning though and he totally didn’t get it haha. I’m hoping he gets the hang of it soon though! I’m hoping to get Piglet a TeePee for his 1st birthday #bestandworst

    • I would really recommend the Connecta, it’s great, but also if you have a sling library near you, pop there and try out some different ones as not everyone gets on differently with different slings. It did take a while for Alfie to get used to the Munchkin cup so definitely persevere – my 2 year old nephew still can’t figure it out yet though!!

  2. Ah what a lovely post! I LOVE your storage solutions especially the toy box, gorgeous. And I totally agree with you on Organix snacks, they have saved me on many many an occasion when dinner isn’t quite ready or the car journey hasn’t quite finished….good to read a post on toddler essentials!! #coolmumsclub

    • Ah thank you so much! I loved making his toybox, and am so proud of it 🙂 I sometimes think my son is going to turn into a cheese puff due to the amount he eats – especially now he can reach the cupboard they’re stored in! Thanks for reading 🙂

  3. I’m totally with you on the Organix snacks and we love our trike most days! Taylor’s always hated being carried though, so we never got much use out of our baby carrier. x #coolmumclub

  4. Just popping over from #coolmumclub as I’d saved your post on Facebook but have only just got round to reading it! We love our 360 cups too, I think they look so grown up drinking out of them! I adore your toy box, it’s so beautiful xxx

  5. What a cutie! I just love that Zoo, I have far too many stuffed animals in my house!!!! I must be honest! We have never used a stair gate! Never needed to !! Luckily! Great list… Thank you for sharing with us at #globalblogging

  6. I love all the photos, the tepee looks amazing! Where did you get this? I am thinking I will need a bigger baby carrier soon as well, I’ll check out the connecta! I think I’ll need a booster seat as well, basically you are created the perfect list for me lol. Thanks for sharing with #GlobalBlogging!

    • Ah thank you! The teepee Base is from Hobbycraft – it’s a design your own one, so comes plain and then I pulled it apart, added the Marvel fabric and sewed it back together. Ha, glad you have found the list useful 🙂 thanks for reading x

  7. Such a great list of essentials. I definitely second the teething remedies, the booster chair and all the clever storage you start to need! I have my eyes on a SmarTrike for our littlest once hes a bit older and a toot toot set – they look like great fun 🙂 Thanks for sharing this on #MarvMondays. Emily

  8. Great post. There is so much advice out there for how to prepare for a new baby, but once you get past year one, it seems like you are pretty much on your own. I especially like that you included a baby carrier. The right carrier can hold a growing child all the way through toddlerhood and do so comfortably. And, the teething remedies! Another thing that you only think of needing when baby is young and cutting first teeth. Toddler teething can be the worst and cause them so much discomfort. Thank you for this practical advice. As a fellow writer that speaks to parents of babies and toddlers, I find articles like this invaluable.
