Most Used | 3-4 Years

Image with the words 'Most Used for ages 3-4 years' written in a black, sketch like font in the centre of the image. Surrounding the text are images of the items most used during the ages 3-4 years. This includes a pair of pink plastic childrens sunglasses, A bottle of ready mixed yellow kids craft paint, a pair of blue childrens ear defenders, a childrens unicorn handwriting practice and activity book and a bag of copper coins.

Every time I write these Most Used posts I feel a mixture of sadness and a sense of purpose. The sense of purpose comes from using my parenting knowledge to inform other parents or those buying gifts, what the most useful things are for this age group. The sadness comes from realising my little girl is growing up and when I look back over these old posts they remind of the things we used to own, things full of memories and nostalgia- who'd have thought you'd miss a travel potty?? Parenting is weird like that. Here's this year's list of the things we used most between the ages of 3-4.

Most Used | 2-3 Years

The terrible twos. The age of "I don't want to walk" but "I don't want to go in the buggy". The urgent cries of "I need a wee-wee" followed by a mad panic and no actual weeing taking place. A challenging year yet an amazing one. The year of long winded conversations and awkward observations in the most inappropriate of places. The emergence of people skills, kindness, turn taking, please and thank yous. A bright and brilliant time. Here's the things we've used the most throughout this wonderfully daunting year.

As first time parents we were easily convinced that we needed so many different things for our little bundle. Despite doing my research there were things that worked and things that didn't. It's largely to do with trial and error. Some babies will take to certain things and not others but these are the things that we found most useful in our first 12 months with Iris.

Most Used Items | Our Weaning Essentials

Weaning can be scary and just like with breast vs. bottle you will be judged on how you approach it. Sad but true. We personally adopted the baby led weaning approach and it worked exceptionally well for us and Iris is a fabulous eater but it won't work for everybody. Weaning is like the entirety of parenthood, it's down to you to work out what's best for your family and the types of product you use for weaning are also very much down to personal choice but for us these are the things that have found most useful.
