Baby Development – 12 months

Your baby will probably be able to…

Physical Development

  • Move – crawling, rolling, shuffling, coasting on furniture
  • Bounce to music
  • Throw toys
  • Point
  • Be better at picking things up

 

Cognitive Development

  • Can better understand a routine – know what is coming next in a sequence
  • Imitate actions and noises after they have happened
  • Be aware of someone else being upset or happy

 

Language and Communication

  • Say some simple words
  • Follow simple instructions
  • Say more expressive babble
  • Know how to use her voice

 

Emotional and Social Development

  • Enjoy and respond to songs and actions
  • Will want to be close to a familiar adult
  • Have likes and dislikes
  • Enjoy games
  • Imitate other people

Developmental Leaps

Each leap brings changes in behaviour, awareness, mood and sleep and your baby may seem unsettled and clingy and in need of more reassurance.

41-47 weeks – your baby could now be:

  • learning about sequences and putting things together
  • involved in more active play
  • observing and imitating the people around him
  • capable of greater movement now.
