A 12-month-old baby is often a very happy little person. Life is great! But don't get in his way... Check our Baby Development Guide!
From Helpless To Helpful in Just One Year!
What if adult development was even near the speed of baby development? We would probably be completely burned out!
Babies follow a quite predictable line of developmental milestones during their first year. First, they just sleep, then become a bit more awake, start to smile, then talk, etc.
It is fun to know what to look for and what you can do to encourage your baby.
But don’t become competitive! Babies are different. If your baby rolls over early or late compared to the average says absolutely nothing about the prospects of him becoming a doctor or a rock star or a happy person for that matter…
Our oldest son didn’t walk until he was 20 months old. That is considered quite late by any time table. Was it a problem? No! Was he abnormal? No! He just liked crawling, I suppose!
Most kids are completely normal, whether they are early or late compared to the statistical development milestones.
Of course, if you are worried that something might be wrong with your baby, promptly talk to a pediatrician!
Below you can learn about your baby’s development month by month, answer in our baby development polls, read about warning signs, troubleshoot behaviors, and find tips on how to play to encourage your baby at different stages.
