And, it is meant to be so. You should do the same only. Also, we understand that you might want to capture everything that your baby does. In this era at least, it is very easy. We don’t have to do a lot for this. Just set a camera, which we have in our phones and Ta-Dah! Well, here we too are talking about the First Year of Baby’s Development. Read this post to get to know of what is coming for you and your baby in the next one year.
What the First Year of Baby’s Development goes like?
Though we might just be expecting a lot many times from the New Born. We might just be impatient about him/her speaking or calling us, but these things vary from genetics. Also, there is a lot of pressure on your shoulders too. You have to take the right care of your baby. The first year, and majorly the first few months of your baby are the most crucial ones. No diseases should come near to your baby in this time at least. So, Hygiene too is a major concern. Apart from this, there are a lot of things, which any Parent observes during the First Year of Baby’s Development. We are talking of those below here.
First Year of Baby’s Development | Baby Milestones:
Here are the few things which might concern you, during the First Year of Baby’s Development.
1). Huge Expectations:
Sure, it is very difficult to take care of an infant. Not being usual to the behavior of frequent cries, you might feel exhausted at times (and irritated as well). Well, we recommend you to read our Blogs for help.
2). Baby Smiles:
Well, two months have gone by now and sure you have seen a lot of crying from your baby. No surprise that this is an acceptable behavior coming from a new born baby. But the best thing still is to come. The good news is that by the End of two months, your baby will begin to respond to your smiles. And, to your touches as well.
3). Baby Laughs:
Now, assuming that you have taken care of your baby for Four Months, you are used to to a lot many traumas which came to you from your little one. But, to admit seeing your two month old, beginning to smile for you, might have been a wonder ride for you. Now is the time to see them laugh. Your baby will laugh so easily that you will be surprised. That is how it works. Babies laugh around a 1000 times a day. (Feeling like going through depression? Most of us do.)
4). Full Night Sleeps:
Though there are several other milestones, which the parents wait for their baby to show, but this one is something which they can’t wait for. A Full Night Sleep, for the baby is what every parent desires. More because, they too will be able to sleep this way. Between 4-6 months, your baby will begin to relieve you a bit, during the night.
5). Sits up by self:
This one is huge. Imagine yourself feeling the same. Not being able to sit up by yourself, sure that would hurt a lot. But to our happiness. Most of the babies learn sitting up, by their selves, when at an age of 7-9 Months.
6). Begins to Crawl:
Though this is not a milestone, which every kid achieves. But, those who don’t are quicker. Why? Because, they just skip the whole crawling thing and jump to the next levels. Crawling is common for a baby, when he/she gets to be of 9-10 months by age. They use, all the four limbs to crawl. You might have seen this too.
7). Waves Hello and Byes:
Well, waving a Hello or a Bye is not just about a cute action by a little baby. At the age of around 9 months, babies begin to understand and unfold the links between language, sounds and gestures. So, when they wave a Hello or a Bye to you, trust me, they kind of know what they are doing.
8). Begin to Eat Finger Foods:
This is the time when your baby might have started to feel that spoons are not for him/her. And this is when they begin to eat by themselves. They feed themselves with the help of their fingers. But, as a sad thing, babies of this age love to explore different textures and tastes, so you have to keep a check that they don’t eat what they shouldn’t.
9). Begins to Stand:
If your baby has come to an age of 12 months, you might start to feel happier, as now the baby can stand up. They try it hard, and at one point, they are able to stand right straight. Also, they can be taking small steps as this is the time when they explore everything.
10). Takes the First Step:
Well, as I mentioned above too, it is a huge thing when the baby takes it’s first step. This can be a moment that you might wish to celebrate. When at the age of around an year, your baby can begin to take small steps.
11). First Words:
Okay, every parent awaits this. Every Mother wants to be called “Mumma” and every Dad wants to be called “Papa” or “Dad” as soon as they become parents. Now, this is the time when your baby begins to imitate others speaking different words. And during this only, they say the first words.
Apart from these, there are a lot many things yet unsaid, which we might be sharing in the coming days. For now, these were the First Most Noticed Milestones of a Baby. Talking of the First Year of Baby’s Development, this was it. Stay tuned for a lot more yet to come.
