Now that your baby is crawling and walking with help, let him explore many different types of textures, including grass, carpet, and the floor.
Read together with your baby every day. Involve your child in the experience by pointing to people and things in the pictures and asking your baby what they are. You can also involve him by letting him turn the pages.
Start reinforcing good behaviors with praise, and correcting inappropriate behaviors with a firm “no.”
Encourage your baby to start becoming more independent while dressing, eating, and getting ready for bed.
If your baby is now motoring around on two feet, put socks with treads on him or a pair of comfortable baby shoes when you go out. Stick to bare feet at home until your baby is actually walking.
