Baby Essentials: 12 months

Baby Gluck //

As we near the end of January, I am almost able to say I have survived, thrived, and everything in between when it comes to making it through your first year of motherhood. Reese will be 1 on January 31st and gosh doesn’t her birth seem like just yesterday? Ah!! Well, I know I put together some useful guides to babies along the way… from planning a beautiful baby shower, to packing your hospital bag and planning your take home from the hospital outfit, to decorating your nursery (gender neutral and baby girl), to essentials for the first several months, to traveling tips, to tips to getting things done at home when you don’t have a nanny, so now it’s time to round out the first year with a Cheat Sheet to everything you {or at least I NEED} for a one year old.  From favorite toys, to bath time, to feeding, I tried to cover all the big topics. So shop below whether you need gifts or are planning for your little one!!

 Cheat Sheet to Everything you Need for your 1 Year Old:

Favorite Toys:

Shop Toys:

Bathing Routine:

Shop Bath Time:


  • The time has come to make some big switches… from bottles to sippy cups, from formula/breast milk to cows milk, and from purees to hand held foods.
  • For sippy cups I like them both with a straw or classic sipper. For foods, you will need plates and bowls {although they are more for you to heat up food because the babies don’t really grasp the concept of picking up out of the bowl – I still place things directly onto the high chair platter}, and then for to-go containers, you need some good baby safe tupperware. I have some great multipack recommendations for all these: the Skip Hop Zoo Plate, Bowl, Straw Bottle and Utensil Set Bundle with plates, utensils, and straw togo cup, the Take and Toss Feeding Variety Pack 28 pc. with 7 spill-proof sippy cups, 6 forks and spoons, 5 snack bowls, and 4 bowls with lids, and then for tupperware, I love the Sistema Small Klip-It Container {I love that it can go in fridge, freezer, microwave and dishwasher}.

Shop Feeding:

So if you have also made it to 1, congrats! If you are prepping, get excited because this age is truly a blast!! Need other baby tips? Don’t miss a beat {or outfit} in my Baby section!
