What are baby development tips?

ANSWER

  • Your baby learns a lot by interacting with people.
  • Your baby may imitate what you do, like sweeping with a broom or talking on the phone.
  • Make time to read, play, and talk to your baby each day.
  • When you're with baby, say the names of things to help his language skills.
  • Pull toys, blocks for stacking and building, and balls are good for this age.
  • TV or media is not a good idea. Try putting on music instead.
  • Make sure your home is baby-proofed for the safety of your mobile or nearly mobile baby.

Your baby will need to be in a rear-facing car seat until age 2. Never leave baby alone in the car.
