Is your baby on track? Developmental Milestones of Your Child
Sep 13, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Following are a few developmental milestones that you can expect to witness in your child.
Between the periods of 12 to 15 months, the baby becomes capable of standing without any external support from someone else.
Some toddlers walk around 12 to 15 months, while on the other hand, few start walking between 15 to 18 months. Many children are so ecstatic to explore their surroundings that they might even start climbing stairs.
When your baby reaches this stage they tend to gain enhanced control over the movement of their hands and arms. They start picking up things that they find interest in.
By this stage, the toddler will elucidate their affection towards people due to the emotional attachment they hold towards them. When they turn around 14 months, they usually get fearful of losing or getting separated from you.
After witnessing several months of babbling, finally, you will hear your younger one utter words and believe me that is the most soothing and content feeling ever.
Following tips can be followed in order to help your toddler develop:
- Read, sing and talk to them
- Kiss and hug them, this makes them feel loved and happy
- Play with them such as peekaboo and motivate them to walk
- Do not discontinue breastfeeding
You should consult a pediatrician in case your toddler has turned 18 months old and does not walk, has inefficiency in hearing or seeing things clearly, utter words, follow your instructions, use gestures or waves at you or maintain eye contact.
