10-12 months


Your 10-12 month old is learning to drop things and point. Shape sorter toys are fun at this age. They will soon be walking and may be crawling and cruising around the furniture.

Their coordination is improving, try introducing a spoon at mealtimes. You will hear an increasing number of sounds such as “mama” and “dada”. Your baby will be watching and copying those around them. They will study your facial expressions, voice tones, words and actions.What they see and hear will shape their emotional and social behaviour. They are learning about relationships and becoming more independent. Your baby’s vision is now as good as an adult’s. Memory is increasing too and they are becoming better at recognising familiar people, objects shapes and colours. Baby is investigating and is learning quickly about the world around them, finding corners of your home that you may not be familiar with. If you haven’t already, take a good look around and ensure the environment is a safe place for your baby to explore grow and develop. It’s a good idea to lie on the floor and look around to see things from your baby’s view point.
