– Hi guys, welcome back to my channel. In today’s video, I am
going to be sharing with you our baby must-haves from
12 months to 18 months old. So, this is everything that
Jackson has been loving and using the most since he became one. And I have made lots of
videos like this in the past. If you have a different aged baby, definitely go and check out those videos, I will link them down below. I made a newborn one, three to six months, and six to 12 months, so this is the next one in the
like, series that I am doing. So, I really hope you like this. Give it a big thumbs up if
you like these kind of videos and I will know to make more. And yeah, if you’re not
subscribed to my channel, please subscribe. It’s free and I would love
to have you as a viewer. So yes, without further ado, I am going to start out with my essentials and then I am going to do toys, and then I am going to do snacks, as well. Let’s start out with the basics. And these are the nappies or
diapers I have been loving this time around. These are pull-ups. These happen to be Pampers,
but these are just so great. If you have a very wriggly
baby that wants to walk away or crawl away while you’re
trying to change them, you can slip these on
really easily like pants. But when they dirty their nappy, you can easily rip the sides
so you can take them off if they’re messy, et cetera. Also, there is a little
sticky bit on the back so when you have a full nappy, you can roll them up and like, you can put the sticky bit across it, and I actually found them
really handy this time. Holds everything in, et cetera. So, I’m loving those and then
in terms of barrier cream, my favorite kind this
time has been this one. It is the Bepanthen. Jackson’s skin can be
a little bit sensitive and I have found that this barrier cream and also the Aveeno
barrier cream I really like have been the best ones for him. We have also been loving
baby sleeping bags and every night I put Jackson to bed, I will put him in a
little baby sleeping bag and he will go to bed in that and no matter how much he
rolls around during the night, he will still have a cover on him because he is wearing the sleeping bag and because this is now
part of his routine, even when he sees the sleeping bag or we just slip it on him, he knows it’s bed time and
he goes to bed really well. Next up, I wanted to show you the baby stair gates that we chose. And we do have a baby proofing
video coming out very soon and these will feature in that, but I wanted to show you them here as well because it’s definitely
an essential at this age. Jackson has a very keen
interest in the stairs, and it could be quite dangerous if we didn’t have stair gates and the ones that we
have are seven years old. I got them when I had my first baby, and they have really been hard wearing. They’re from a brand called Numi and I really like the way they look. They were like brown and silver
and they look quite sleek. But what I really liked
about them is there is no bar that goes along the floor
so there isn’t a risk of me or one of my kids
tripping over that bar, so I really liked that. But have a look online, you
can definitely get cheaper stair gates and we even have
one on Jackson’s room as well, so when I’m getting ready, if I want him to just play with his toys and his ball pit in his room, I can close the stair gate there as well and that’s actually been really handy. I’m sure you have a high
chair by now as well, but I wanted to give a
little shout out to my Ikea highchair. It is 15 pounds and we love it. We’re still using it,
it’s so easy to clean. I am on the lookout of
getting a booster seat so Jackson can sit actually at
the table with his brothers. So, if anyone knows of a
really good booster seat, let me know in the comments below. But yes, in terms of high chair, we still love our Ikea one. Next up, I wanted to mention
our nappy bin or diaper bin. We have loved having this throughout and now that Jackson has been
weaned onto three meals a day, as you can imagine, sometimes his nappies
do not smell very good, and I always really appreciate that I have somewhere I can put them where they won’t smell at all. Another product I really
wanted to show you is our non-slip bath mat. I don’t know about your baby, but now that Jackson is 16 months old, he wants to stand up in the bath and even walk around. And he was slipping over, so
this bath mat has been great to stop him from falling over. I also wanted to mention
this Munchkin bath jug. I really like having it and using it for all the
boys to wash their hair. And often when I’m not using it, I will put it onto the tap and
because it’s nice and soft, they won’t hurt their backs on the tap, so I have just found it really handy. And while we’re talking about the bath, I also wanted to show you
a leave-in conditioner or de-tangling spray we have been loving. Jackson has quite long and curly hair and he is the first baby
that I’ve had like it, so I kind of had to
learn how to manage it, so I’ve loved being able
to spray that into his hair and use my tangle teaser to comb his hair out when it’s all wet. If you have any recommendations
on products I could use to like, enhance his curls
or make his curls like, hold a bit longer, then let me know because sometimes when I
brush his hair through, it is just like this
huge bouffant of hair. This little thing is a really
cool portable high chair that you can keep in your handbag. I showed it in what’s in
my changing bag video, and lot’s of you really liked it. I found it on Jojo Maman Bebe and it’s basically this cloth highchair that can go onto any chair and you can sit your baby
in it and feed them that way if there are no highchairs around or like, we got caught at in an airport and used it there. I’ve probably only used
it like, three times, but whenever I do use it, I’m like, this is so cool,
I’m so glad I have this. My next item may not be relevant to you if you live in a warm climate, but here in the UK, it has been quite cold and Jackson has been
living in this all-in-one snow suit. We really loved it, from
the Gap and it was actually Caleb’s before his, so
it’s quite good quality. I’ll try and link a similar one down below but we’ve really loved having
it because it’s nice and warm and fleecy on the inside but
also, you have the option of having the feet that come with it or just putting your child in shoes and I really like that because
Jackson’s a very good walker and lot’s of these snow suits
come with the built in shoes but, sometimes you want them
to actually wear proper shoes and it also came with
the extra little like, mittens as well that just like, clip on. So yeah, we’ve really liked having that and I’ve had lot’s of
comments on it as well. When it comes to Jackson’s teeth, we have been using the
Aquafresh Little Teeth on him with a tiny baby toothbrush. He really enjoys brushing his teeth and we chose to get
Aquafresh because our dentist said he thinks it’s the best
one because it has the most fluoride in it, so I thought it was worth
letting you guys know that as well. And whenever Jackson is ill
or teething or has a fever, we have been using Calpol on him. This is basically like Tylenol
in the states or Canada if you’re watching from there. It’s baby Paracetamol. You can get it sugar
free, color free as well. But we really find it
this is effective with him and I always give it with the
syringe that it comes with because he takes it far
better with this syringe, and I really like that they
do these little handy satches for your handbag as well so
you can keep these in your handbag if you’re ever out and about and your baby’s unwell or when
they have their injections as well. These are great to have with you. Someone commented on one of my videos that they actually put
this into the syringe and it wasn’t quite the
five mL it should have been, so maybe look at out for that, but I just really think they’re handy because you can rip off the corner and even just squeeze into their mouth like this so I really
like using these as well. Now onto Jackson’s
favorite toys at this age. He is really loving books. He will sit in the car and
look through these little books for ages. He loves Peppa Pig books and he also likes these
“That’s Not My…” books. They’re basically texture books. I’m sure he’d love any texture books. But, we’ve had these for all our boys. So, they just have
different types of like, fuzzy feeling or rough
feelings or bumpy feelings throughout it and he really
seems to enjoy touching the textures and looking at the bright colors. So, he’s really enjoying his books. He also likes ones with sounds as well. He is also loving his car garage and all three of my children
have loved this car garage. It is from Little People, it
is Fisher Price, I believe and it must be indestructible because all of my boys
have like, hung off of it or stood on it, and I also
have noticed that lots of nurseries have this same garage, so it’s really hard wearing and we have just bought so
many little cars over time and he loves just standing there and putting them down the chute. He has also got really
into ride along toys and for Christmas we got
him this little ride along fire engine from My First Year, so that was really cute because
we personalized it as well, and he loves just pushing it
around or sitting on it while he’s in the kitchen. We’ve got that and also this ride along mouse that he really enjoys playing with. He also loves Playmags. This is definitely a toy
that is for older boys because this was Fraser and Caleb’s toy. They’re basically these little
tiles that magnet together so you can build things, but he really likes when I build towers and then he knocks them down and he also sits there for ages just pulling the magnets apart and putting them back together again. He also likes blocks and he can kind of build these
little towers now himself, but again, he loves when
I build like a block tower and then he just like, knocks it all down, he really enjoys that. And I like the blocks as well
because they have numbers and letters on them. I will say, oh this one’s got an A on it, this one’s got one or
two or whatever it is and I think that over time, he
will definitely pick that up. He likes stacking things in general and he really enjoys this
Melissa and Doug stacking toy. We got him this for Christmas and we basically just take all of the little things off of it and just sit there and
put them all back on. He hasn’t quite got
them in the right like, color coded order or anything
like that but he really enjoys putting them back onto the
spokes that are on the game. He also loves balls and playing catch. He particularly likes
this blue textured ball and he also loves cooking toys. We have lot’s of fun
food and tea sets as well and he will play with his
little tea cups for ages and recently, he has started to love, like, this little baby buggy and doll. We don’t actually have one at home, but whenever we go to a
playgroup that has a little baby buggy, he will put
the doll in and then like, run around with it for ages, so I need to get him one. His favorite TV show is Peppa Pig and his favorite movies are
Trolls and Sing as well. In terms of baby beakers, these three are probably his favorite. We have the good old Tommee
Tippee beaker which I have used for so many years on all of my children. I just think it’s so simple and convenient and it never leaks in my bag, so I really rate these beakers. But for nighttime, he has his milk, a little bit warmed up, in this. I am still breastfeeding a tiny bit, but the majority of his
milk now comes out of this Newbie beaker and I love it, and I’ve actually made a
video about transferring from breast straight to a beaker
if you want to see it, so I’ll link it down below. But yeah, it’s just really soft, the top. And the next beaker that I
wanted to show you is this one. It’s really cool because
it has weighted straw. So, even if he goes like
this, like the weight and the straw sort of
follows along with the way that he is putting the breaker. So, I think that’s
actually really convenient because sometimes they don’t
know whether to use the straw, or go like this. So, yeah, we quite like that as well. And in terms of snacks,
he loves breadsticks, he loves hummus, he loves all kinds of fruit. He loves baby crisps, he loves little baby
biscuits like these ones. These ones are Ella’s Kitchen. He still loves a little fruit pouch. This is Ella’s Kitchen as well and I have these more
as a snack than a meal because he will now eat a sandwich and an actual meal like meatballs, spaghetti, stuff like that. But these are great to have in your bag or when you’re out and about and he will literally just squeeze the whole thing into his mouth
in like two seconds flat. We also buy yogurt-y ones like this, and these are like little fruit flakes. These are Bear Claws and yeah, we love these because they are
basically like sweets to him. It’s just dried fruit but,
they taste so good to him. So yeah, he really likes these as well. And the last thing I wanted
to show you is some clothing and I rarely show clothing in my favorites because Jackson is the
youngest of three boys and he never gets anything new, but I am really loving the
Baby K clothing at Mothercare. It’s my Myleene Klass’s range and it’s really funky. I got him this little
t-shirt that says play which I thought was a little
bit like Youtube, and pause. And, they just do some really
funky clothes that don’t look that baby-ish and they’re
just quite unique and cool. I got this one always awesome and then I got a white
one that said never bored and then these little cool,
like striped trousers. I know they’re like a
little bit out there, but yeah, I really like
her range of clothing, so I thought that it was worth sharing that with you as well. But yes, that is it for this video. I really hoped you liked our
favorites and essentials. Let me know in the comments
below what your favorites and essentials are from
12 to 18 months old because I think that’s
always really useful for everyone else to read in the comments and yes, thank you so much for watching and I will see you in my next one. Bye guys!


  1. We have the same stair gates from 7 years ago too! They were pricey but defo worth the investment πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ x

  2. We have the same stair gates from 7 years ago too! They were pricey but defo worth the investment πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ x

  3. OXO tot does a booster seat which good comes in some nice colours plus fold down if you want to take it out with you easy

  4. Love your videos! I’m due my first baby in April and watching your pregnancy updates & baby videos have really helped me! πŸ‘ΆπŸ» xxx

  5. Hey Emily. We just took the tray off the ikea high chair and pulled it right up to the table instead of getting a booster seat. It works really well and my little one loves sitting at the big table with us xx

  6. Hi Emily. Great video, very informative. Been uoir viewer for quite while now. Just wanna ask you, is Jackson still waking up in the middle of the nigt or is he sleeping all through the night? Coz my 13mos old son still wakes up a couple times at night

  7. Emily, in regards to the toothpaste, I think you might have mistaken β€œmost fluoride” for the least fluoride. Here in Australia we aren’t supposed to use toothpaste until our child turns 2, and even then we have to choose low-fluoride toothpaste.

    This video came at a perfect time. My son is 12 months now. πŸ™‚

  8. Thank u ! Informative as usual! My recommendation for a booster seat is mamas and papas .. even my four year old uses it sometimes .. it’s s great quality !

  9. Emily!!! I LOOOOOOOOVE your videos! I just love you and I am so happy that I found your channel!! πŸ™‚ Keep up the amazing work!

  10. Thank you for making videos like this, I always get good ideas from it!!! P. S: I've been following /watching you ever since I became pregnant (I'm a mom of a 5mo old baby girl) and finally, for the first time left comment today, yay!

  11. Please don't bring him to preschool with those pull ups. They are the absolute worst for us toddler teachers. You have to completely take off shoes and pants just to put on the pull up. Plus we have other kids to change as well so having those pull ups make the actual change so long.

  12. Dear Emily, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am a Mum of a cute 10-months old baby girl and your vlogs have helped us with breastfeeding, weaning or other baby questions/issues. Your smiley approach showed me that it can be a lot of fun and most parents deal with the same issues. I feel like I can always look up a topic to find some guidance and information from you. Thank you!!!! Keep up the good work. Martina

  13. Great video, I love your channel, my little boy is 6 months old and I have found all of your videos so helpful the whole journey through!! Thank you for sharing!! X

  14. Emily I’m one of those nerds who read you tubers description box. Your FAQs need updating πŸ˜‰
    Never fail to make a good video x

  15. We have Chicco snack booster chair. It's two thumbs up for travelling as well, you jus fold it as flat as a sling bag. We love it, hint: they have Gray color! πŸ˜‰

  16. Can I ask what you have done with the items you not longer use for Jackson now that his out grown ? Like his bigger baby / nursery items up to age of 12 months ?

  17. Check out the Curly Girl method for Jacksons hair! I've been using it on my son for over a year and he has epic curly hair! Xx

  18. Awww he has so many favourites similar to my little boy whose sleeping at the moment and this video has made me miss him haha! My baby is 15 months and loves books especially the "That's not my…" ones. He is also a die hard Peppa Pig fan. I am now eyeing up that garage as I think he'd love it but we have so many plastic toys!!

  19. This has been so helpful! My son is 16 months and I'm going to try everything you reccomended!!❀️

  20. This video is perfect! Great timing as my little one is turning 18 months….thanks for the tips Emily! Love the pull ups, the stair gate and glad to know I’m already using aqua fresh for him …..great recommendations! Love his books! My little one has some textured books too and he loves them! Awwwww……..

  21. Emily I love your videos. I have bought nearly everything you’ve suggested and cleaning has been so easy.
    I have bought the Dyson V6, spray mop, Sofie the giraffe, Boochew teething jewellery, and bandana bibs so you can say I am obsessed! Lol
    Loretta is 7 Months Atm. So Hi from Australia.

  22. I always thought it was so funny that your youngest and my first had the same due date, and now they have the same favorite movies as well.

  23. A really good chair that can stand near the table is the one from Stokke just go up their website I have it and it’s really good.

  24. Are you able to keep him clean when he has the fruit pouch? I'm afraid my son would squeeze it all over the place.

  25. My baby is now 10 months but he doesn't seem to crawl at all I put him on the mat with all his favorite toys or even help him crawling but it doesn't work at all, my friends daughter who was born on the same day can now walk I'm really frustrated I don't know what I should and shouldn't do , it's my first baby can you give me some advice please , thank you( I love all your videos) πŸ™‚

  26. You should get a tripp trapp from stokke for Jackson I think it is about 200 £ but I still have mine and I am 13 and I got it used❀

  27. About the booster seat, there is an on the go one that attaches to a table with no screws!!😜😝😜😝😜

  28. I went back and just re-watched this video as my little one is turning 1 year old next week (eeek!). My recommendation for sippy cups would be the Munchkin Miracle 360 cups. I only just got them last week and didn't know how long he would take to get used to it. But he's doing great and knows how to drink out of them already. Plus they don't leak either!

  29. Thanks for this video it has been really helpful. I’ve just bought the jo mama bene portable high chair. Can’t wait to use it.

  30. I love my bumbo as a booster/high chair. I have never had a proper high chair coz I have no room in my dinning room so I just used a bumbo multi seat. I've been using it with the foam insert coz my baby was still small but as she grows bigger, I can take off the foam part so she can use that till she's 3 years old.

  31. I love that you guys call it beakers! I'm a Texan who moved to Australia and bought a 100-first words picture book for my now 12 year old son and one of the words i'd never heard of before is Beaker!! I always called it Sippy Cup!!!!

  32. Fever always nerophen
    Plus mommy's be careful pepper pig has secret it teaches children bad manners bad behaviour and rudeness stereo types lots watch it u will see

  33. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜β˜ΊοΈπŸ™‚πŸ€—πŸ˜‡πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’›πŸ’šβ€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ’›

  34. For booster recommendations, I got the Summer Infant Pop and Sit portable booster and love it! Very easy to wipe clean and comes with it's own carry case.

  35. There are a lot of comments, so sorry if I'm duplicating, but do you have some sort of rubbery bin in his room?? I just caught a glimpse and it looked amazing! What is it and where can I find it?

  36. Baby lotion put it in ur hands an scrunch his hair an when it dries itl hold the curls an is easy to wash out an cheap as somethin u use on their skin

  37. Hi Emily. You mentioned you were looking for a baby seat so baby can sit at the table…. we use the stokke tripp trapp and love it. I've used it from birth and now baby is 11months and 2 weeks and she has always eaten at the table with us, this has to be my nΒ°1 buy. Love your videos been watching them since I was pregnant. Thanks for sharing xx

  38. What is the blue, yellow, red, and green plastic toy in front of your son at 7:54? Not the car garage, but the ball ramp toy.? Thanks! Really enjoyed watching btw

  39. The green strawcup from Munchkin definitely is one of our favourites since Asiya is 6 months old. I bought exactly the same out of impulse, but it turns out to be our best one !
    Asiya knocks down blocktowers as well now. She's 10 months now, but loves blocks since she was 7 months old. So blocks of any kind are definitely a must have. As are books. Especially with textures or flaps.
    We live in a busy city, so we have to travel a lot with public transport, so our baby carrier from Tula really comes in handy (strollers in trains and busses give such a big headache!).
    And she's standing and trying to walk around now so edges of any kind are favourite πŸ™‚ Hope she will be as good as Jackson soon ! She loves watching him too … either Watching your vids, Peppa pig or hiho kids (especially when they eat, it helps her too eat too).

  40. Always helpful for new mums.. one or the other tip you give is just what i am looking for..
    Thanks for making these videos.

  41. Hi Emily, I have a 15 month old baby and we give him cow's milk to drink as he never liked formula milk.. what do you give Jackson to drink ? I read somewhere that cow's milk should be given to babies after 3y old.. ? Xxx love your videos and still come back to them ! Xx

  42. Hey , Hope ur doing fine. .thanks for this upload buddy, but would be glad if u can make a video on picky eaters since my 15 month old boy literally dislikes almost everything,I have tried being innovative with his food too but he denies n I discouraged formula milk since newborn so he doesn't even have bottle feeds.

  43. I have been loving your posts and subscribed to your channel because I find your videos entertaining and highly informative since I delivered my baby. I love your must have videos and regrets. Looking forward to more of these vids.

  44. did you find anything useful for curls? or does anyone have advice? Β my 18 month daughter has similar hair to the video

  45. Hi Emily. I love this post! Thank you for sharing. Try CANTU kids leave in cream (comes in a tub). I use that for the daytime for my daughter's curls and their detangled for night time. It holds it very nicely.

  46. Best thing that helped me protect his bum is Vaseline ladies. Don’t use the baby one, it has smell. Use the original one or the one with aloe Vera

  47. Hi just wanted to ask you when do you think is the best time to introduce cows milk to toddlers to drink

  48. You can buy educational fun toys here and Great Hand Made Gifts

  49. Hi Emily, I am watching all ur videos constantly and follow you on Instagram, so I know this video is quite old, but hopefully u'll read this and maybe will help other mums as well. I wonder, how did you manage not to co sleep with ur baby? I would really like to move my baby to his room. But since 10 months he is really crying when I leave him in his bed so I need to co sleep.. thanks and lots of love to u and ur family

  50. Wow this vid just popped up for me a year after you posted it, but anyway my recommendation for curly hair spray for kids is Mixed Chicks Tangle Tamer, it has a citrusy scent and really accentuates and defines curls as well as helping detangle them ready for leaving the house xx

  51. My baby was born in Martin Luther King Hospital he was born 6 pounds 7 oz in 20 in long the longest baby I ever had this is my first time being a mom for Canon I hope he go to school and learn his ABCs and one two threes hope he do good in school without me coming up to the school house I don't never whip Cannon like I don't whoop him at all I'm a good parent to him I play with him feed him adore him and love love I bought all his sweet kid hope you like this comment for Canon I'm his mom my name is keywonna
    My mom Hopi do good in school airline has alphabets his shapes and colors I know he when he go to school he going to be a lovable kid to the teachers

  52. Coming to this a bit late but I'd recommend looking up the Curly hair method. There are a list of products (silicone free) that break down and weigh down curls and there are also a list of products to use that dont. Loads of no nos – like brushing hair when dry etc. Really changed my daughter's curly mop. πŸ˜€ Love your videos as always. I dont know how you manage 3. I struggle with one! πŸ™‚

  53. I know this is an old video but anyone with a curly haired baby should check out the curly girl method for taking care of curly hair! Rule number one, don't brush it out when you're done with bath time. Detangle in the tub with conditioner πŸ™‚

  54. Ahh my baby is 11mo now and I can relate to this video so much!! It also makes me so excited for the months to come!!
