The transition from baby to toddler encompasses a variety of different milestones. It can be an exciting and challenging for parents, especially those who are experiencing the changes for the first time.

Every six months brings a new change. Even after hitting the one-year mark, there are still many meaningful moments for moms and dads to cherish. From little ones taking their first steps without help to using words they recognize, the first year of a toddler's life comes with important occasions.

Crawling and sleep problems may cause worry for parents of 18-month-old children, but the period also comes with increased mimicking and baby's moving closer to speaking full sentences. Moms and dads may see more independence from toddlers at 24 months as they learn to amuse themselves and communicate more effectively.

By three years of age, toddlers have reached a number of developmental milestones. The ability to understand other children's feelings and share are strong skills to exhibit, but there are still steps parents can take to improve their little one's abilities. Learning new motor skills and ensuring children stay mentally engaged with kids their own age are good places to start as are helping toddlers learn the difference between a truth and a lie.

Learn more about various stages of growth within a toddler's beginnings. From one to three years, parents have a lot to expect as well as a variety to look forward to.
