Three milestones for your baby
From the time your baby is born, it will seem like life is stuck on fast forward. Fortunately, we live in a time we can record everything. Here are three milestones for your baby to look forward too.
When your baby is first born they can’t do much of anything other than look adorable. As the month’s pass around a certain age muscles develop they will be able to sit up by themselves. This milestone is the first in a chain of vital things to learn.
Once the sit up is perfected, then your child begins to crawl. Crawling means that your baby is ready to become mobile. Crawling can be a tiring stage as the baby is also looking for things to get into. Many times the crawling stage is accompanied by a quest to find any and everything to put in their mouth’s. At that age, everything looks like food to babies as they explore the world. It is important to make sure to keep the floors clean and free of debris, or toys from older kids. At this point, anything big enough to block the child’s windpipe is a choking hazard. Baby proofing will be essential.
Walking is the final stage in the babies quest for both mobility and independence. If you have stairs the baby will also try to conquer these as well. As the baby starts getting better at waking it’s important to make sure you don’t let your child fall and hit its head on any hard or sharp surfaces.
These are just the first few in a plethora of milestones your child will reach. These three milestones for your baby don’t have a specific time frame. Make sure to encourage your babies and never put too much pressure on them. Soon they will start working on their toddler milestones and you will love every step of the way.
