Welcome to Toddlerhood (+ Giveaway!)

June 13, 2016

I’ve mentioned in a recent post that Fox hit his terrible twos a year early, but there’s one thing that’s stayed consistent: his big appetite for all kinds of food.

I’m lucky that Fox isn’t picky now that he’s entered toddlerhood. He’s taken too all kinds of foods (think dolma, falafel, and gyoza). In fact, the only thing I haven’t been able to get him to eat is jicama. But who could blame him? I won’t even eat that 😉

Although Fox was born late, he’s always landed somewhere between the 0-8th percentile in both height and weight which has always made us hyper vigilant of the amount he’s eating. It seemed like no matter how much milk he would drink (we’re talking a bottle every 1/2 hour all day every day) or eat, he never packed on the pounds. This became especially concerning to me when he turned one.

Formula for Happiness - TheFebruaryFox.comOn Fox’s first birthday he decided he was ready for a couple major milestones. First on the agenda, learn to walk run. Second, refuse any and all bottles of formula. With the extra exercise and less nutrients going into his little system, I worried that his weight would take a nose dive.

After careful consideration (and some trial and error) we found a non-GMO toddler drink that he’s into that helps pump up his nutrition: Stage 3 Gerber® Good Start® Grow Toddler Drink. Now at 16 months old, Fox benefits from the probiotics and essential nutrients like Iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Potassium. We’ve been die-hard Gerber fans since day one with him, so this one was a no brainer!

Formula for Happiness - TheFebruaryFox.comI have partnered with Gerber to give away a “Welcome to Toddlerhood Kit” so that you can experience the product (and some bonus goodies for yourself) to figure out your own #FormulaForHappiness. Here’s your chance to enter:

    Kid #3 was pulling himself to stand at 6 and a half months. He’s almost nine months now and taking a few steps by himself already…I know he wants to catch up to his brother and sister but I’m not ready!!!!

    For me, my toddler saying “no” or just being defiant and ignoring things I say has been very difficult.

      Mine laughs when I say no 🙁 There hasn’t bee a single instance that he’s listened! One day I’ll be thankful that he’s so headstrong in this world, but for now I’ll have an extra cup of coffee – haha!
