The most important thing to remember is that all babies are special. While some babies may reach a particular milestone at a certain age, others may reach it earlier or later. Avoid comparing babies and the age in which they reach milestones. Let your baby develop at their own pace, and remember never to rush them to learn anything.

Do remember
While light-and-sound toys are attractive, most of them do not aid in the physical or mental development of a baby. So keep a balance between educational toys and battery-operated toys for your baby at this age.

Create your own treasure baskets and make playtime fun like never before. Go ahead and have the best moments with your little angel of joy and cherish the memories all through your life.

By now these little ones have their own personalities and love to explore. Watching them explore, fail and them learn is the best way for them to gain confidence and to get ready for the next step of development.
