Day 305 - Can You Do This? Month 10

Today's First Time Parenting Tip - Track your baby's milestones to make sure they're developing correctly

Its important to make sure that your infant doesn't have any developmental problems, but if he or she seems slow in one area, don't worry about it too much unless they're way behind or your pediatrician seems concerned. Everyone loves to compare their accomplishments to others, but the fact is some babies are fast in verbal development, but slow in the physical department, or vice versa. If you're worried about it, ask your pediatrician. At the end of the tenth month, your infant should be able to:

  • Stand while holding onto something
  • Wave good-bye
  • Pick a small object up between their thumb and forefinger

Probably will be able to:

  • Walk or "cruise" on furniture
  • Pull up to a standing position from sitting
  • Correctly identify "mama" and "dada"
  • Respond to their name

They might also be able to drink independently, stand alone, play ball or give a high five, walk for a step or maybe two, say a word other than mama or dada or put objects into a container.
