Growth & Development Milestones: 8-12 Months
The American Academy of Pediatrics has identified important milestones for babies ages 8 months through 1 year old. We've included fun and easy ways to help your baby reach these key developmental markers plus helpful information new parents should know.

Growth & Development Milestones: 8-12 Months

Gets to Sitting Position Without Assistance
Type of Milestone: Physical

Practice with Baby: Play with your baby on the floor. Roll a ball to him. Every time he leans over to reach a toy, he strengthens his core muscles.

Mama Must-Know: Your little one might still topple over from time to time, but he will usually catch himself with his arms.

Uses Pincer Grasp
Type of Milestone: Physical

Practice with Baby: As your baby begins self-feeding, give her O-shape cereal, and soft diced foods that are perfect for picking up with her index finger and thumb.

Mama Must-Know: You'll find Baby practicing the pincer movement on any small object, so be extra-aware of coins and other objects that are a choking hazard.

Pays Increasing Attention to Speech
Type of Milestone: Language Skills

Practice with Baby: Tell make-believe stories to your baby. The more animated your speech, the more interested he will be. Let him watch your mouth and facial expressions as you talk.

Mama Must-Know: If your little one is often exposed to a second language, don't be afraid he will become confused. Babies can learn two (or more!) languages simultaneously.
