FREDDIE’S 12 MONTH UPDATE | FEEDING, SLEEP & MILESTONES

I am now the mother of a one year old! How did this happen? This year has just flown by and here we are at Freddie’s twelve month update. Today I am going to discuss some changes in our breastfeeding journey, new milestones and sleep struggles.

If you’d like to hear some of my thoughts on Freddie’s first ever birthday, I have written a little birthday themed post. I have also shared some of the gifts Freddie received that I think would be a hit with babies (or should I say toddlers?!) of a similar age too.

TODDLER GIFT IDEAS | FREDDIE’S 1ST BIRTHDAY HAUL

In my previous rather emotional post, I talked about Freddie’s first birthday and my feelings about it. Freddie was very lucky to receive some generous and lovely presents and after asking over on my Instagram, lots of you were interested to see what he got. If you have a toddler with an upcoming birthday or just a little person in your life who you need a gift for, hopefully you will discover some great ideas in this post.

For the sake of not rambling on, I haven’t included everything Freddie received in this post. As well as the below, Freddie received some very trendy clothes and lots of nice books too. If you want to see what G and I bought him, check out the 1st Birthday Gift Guide I posted a little while ago.

Freddie, this year has been the hardest and best of my life. But I would go through every single difficult moment with you because I have never loved someone so completely. You complete me, you complete us. You made us into a family and I have never stopped feeling grateful for the fact that you choose us to be your Mama and Dadda.
