Toddler Milestones 30 Months

So what are the big toddler milestones 30 months to look out for ?

Should I be concerned if my toddler has not reached some of the milestones yet ?

You can find the answer to these and many other questions right here!

Toddler language development is starting to develop far more at 30 months. They will regularly be using two words and sometimes saying complete sentences.

They are still wanting to be independant and your toddler behavior will be impulsive. They see something and want it right then and won't wait. This takes some good parenting skills to manage.

Constant supervision is essential for safety at this age. For instance in a kitchen they will move a chair to climb up on a worktop to get something they have seen. So the thing they are after could be harmful or they may simply fall.

It's at this age that children will start to play more with other children as well as along side them. They are playing outdoors more riding on trikes and playing on slides, swings and climbing frames. Also playing pretend games with small world toys such as farm animals and dolls houses with characters.

At this age some are ready to move from their toddler potty to toddler toilet training. If your toddler is ready and you are consistent and patient. Then they can be out od diapers and using a toilet in a matter of days.

Children of this age still love lots of kisses, cuddles and lots of close time with their parents and other close relatives. They just love to be helping with little jobs at home or on shopping trips. At this age leaving your little one with a stranger such as a new babysitter is a no no. They don't like to be seperated from their parents and will become upset very easily.
