The Next 6 Months: Halfway Through

Below are the stages from Month 7 to 12 of baby development after being born.

Baby Development: 7th Month

Expect a more assertive little tyke. Aside from rolling over to and fro’, your baby begins to crawl. Get those cameras ready, mommy and daddy! It has loads of fun when people are around it and tries to converse with anyone it sees through murmurs. Similarly, it tries to copy any sound you make!

Also, temper-a-temper. You will notice an additional emotion in him or her: anger. Yup, he or she is growing up.

Baby Development: 8th Month

Unlike during the month before when your baby just wouldn’t stop conversing with everyone, for the 8th month, it becomes a bit wary of whom to interact with and starts identifying those who are strangers from those who aren’t.

But be delighted to find that your youngling knows how to respond when you call out its name. It is also during this month that it teaches itself to sit up on its own. So independent!

Baby Development: 9th Month

Hear your baby try to imitate the words you and your partner speak! In the previous months, they merely murmured. This time, it’ll be different because their words will start to sound like yours.

Also, guess what? Here, the crawling begins! Watch your baby lift its own weight and roam around the house on all fours. So adorable!

Baby Development: 10th Month

Exploring and testing its limits now that it knows it can move around on by itself, your baby not only crawls but tries to stand as well. It might also climb places it can reach or think it can reach so make sure you teach them which places are “safe” and which are not so safe.

Plus, this is where you get creative when it comes to feeding your little one. It wants to play and move around more than eat. Here comes the choo-choo train.

It’s ready to test more of its boundaries. Walking is usually a feat that they achieve during their 13th month but some babies try to walk by holding on to a support such as pieces of furniture around your house. Notice how it’s able to express different emotions from delight to anger, sadness to curiosity, and the like.

Baby Development: 11th Month

Happy 1st year to your now toddler! Time flies by so fast, doesn’t it? More walking around (with or without relying on furniture to balance themselves). To add, they will definitely be standing on their own without much help. More audible words will be a part of your toddler’s daily formless speeches.

Each baby is unique and has different approaches and speed when it comes to development. The 12-month guide we’ve provided really is what it is, a guide, to help you set your expectations and therefore prepare you for the exciting changes and milestones your baby will be having.

Some babies might go through the phases faster than others or vice versa.  Either way, mommy and daddy, we know you will be the best parents you can be for your little tyke so be confident in your innate strength as well as the strength of your love for one another and your baby.
