6 toddler essentials to make mornings easier + giveaway worth over $800

Toddler giveaway

When your baby transitions to toddlerdom, life at home changes instantly. This includes the morning routine.

Getting a baby (and yourself) ready in the morning is one thing. Wrangling an active toddler who wants to put their new walking skills to the test at every opportunity is something else.

Will they let you put on their socks? No chance.

What about sitting still while you feed them their Weetbix? That’s a no, too.

And when it comes to brushing their H A I R, you’ll be chasing them around the house before you’ve even picked up the brush.

Fear not – because we have you covered with these toddler essentials that will help make your morning routine easier to manage.

From getting out of bed right through to breakfast, these products will help you to set up a routine in the morning that’s quick and easy to manage.

Plus, one lucky TMB community member will have the chance to win all of them!
