Growth & Development Milestones: 8-12 Months

Cries When You Leave
Type of Milestone: Social

Practice with Baby: As your little one's sense of separation anxiety grows, snuggle and hold her as much as possible when you are available. Try to leave her only with family members and caregivers she is comfortable with and has interacted with many times with you present as support.

Mama Must-Know: Don't believe people who tell you your child is scared or shy because you are spoiling her. Give her as much security as she needs.

Assumes Hands-and-Knees Position
Type of Milestone: Physical

Practice with Baby: Since your baby's arm muscles are more developed than his legs, he might just rock back and forth or even push backward. Place bright toys and fun objects in front of him to encourage him to move forward.

Mama Must-Know: Some babies prefer to scoot on their bottoms or drag on their stomach. As long as Baby uses each arm and leg equally, don't worry.

Responds to "No"
Type of Milestone: Cognitive

Practice with Baby: Since your still derives much meaning from the way you speak, use a firm, low voice when disciplining him.

Mama Must-Know: If you are planning to teach Baby sign language, this is the perfect time to start because he can understand so much more than he can express clearly with words.

Looks at Correct Picture When the Image is Named
Type of Milestone: Cognitive

Practice with Baby: Play simple memory games with baby flash cards. Lay out three or four cards with pictures with clearly different names (showing both a ball and bottle might be confusing). See if she looks at or points to the apple card when you say apple, etc. Try the same game with photos of family members and friends.

Mama Must-Know: Games such as peekaboo and patty-cake also stimulate Baby's memory.
