Day 334 - Can You Do This? Month 11

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 eleventh month, your infant should be able to:

  • Walk or "cruise" on furniture
  • Correctly identify "mama" and "dada"
  • Respond to their name

Probably will be able to:

  • Pull up to a standing position from sitting
  • Drink independently
  • Stand alone
  • Give a high five or play ball
  • Walk for a step or maybe two
  • Put objects into a container

They might also be able to say a word other than mama or dada, stand well by themselves, walk for more than a few steps, understand and respond to the word no sometimes or gesture for an object that they want without crying.
