Growth & Development Milestones: 8-12 Months

Extends Arm or Leg to Help When Being Dressed
Type of Milestone: Physical
Practice with Baby: Play games with your little one when you're dressing her. Play peekaboo when her head pops through her pajama top. Kiss her hands when they appear through her sleeves. Ask her to step in her pant legs. Clap when she follows directions.

Mama Must-Know: Make dressing easier by having everything you need ready before you start. Remember to never leave Baby unattended on a changing table while you step away to fetch her socks or sweater.

Walks Two or Three Steps Without Support
Type of Milestone: Physical

Practice with Baby: Buy your baby a pair of shoes to protect her feet when she's outside and avoid slips. Comfortable, flexible sneakers are the best choice. They will probably last only a couple months before she outgrows them.

Mama Must-Know: Most babies advance from a couple shaky steps to fairly confident walking in just a matter of days.

Tries to Imitate Words
Type of Milestone: Cognitive

Practice with Baby: Be consistent with what you label familiar things. If you call your family pet a dog today, don't call it a puppy tomorrow. If Baby regularly uses the same sound to refer to an object, even if it's not proper English, treat it as a real word. When you talk, however, use correct speech to help her learn.

Mama Must-Know: Paying close attention to your baby's babbling makes it more likely that you'll recognize her first real words.
