Your 11 month baby
Your 11-month baby has by now become an expert at escaping
from places where he or she should be and in areas where
he or she should not be. You will see that the baby
would do anything to climb on everything possible to
investigate and dismantle. Everything is exciting and
nothing deters your 11-month baby. Your baby will crawl
up and turning on itself as soon as you like to change
a diaper on her or him, or otherwise limit the baby
in one place.
Your 11-month baby is now making great progress, perhaps
even taking their first steps without assistance. The
baby also undergoes a verbal success. He or she can
now understand more words, but also saying more words,
other than just mom and dad. Babble in baby talk continues.
The child will be like looking in the books even more
than before, and maybe even like to get the read out
of you. Your baby will understand better and have learned
to recognize the images that he or she had seen before.
Your 11-month baby communicates much by pointing at
Again, parents should not worry about their children's
development in comparison to other children. Every child
grows and develops at their own pace and time. Therefore,
you do not think that even 11-month baby is like that
of another 9-month baby. This is normal and will sooner
or later he or she is to rush forward in development.
Even at this age your baby should have the abilities
that in previous months, that is, if your baby is not
done so already. It is the ability to pick up small
things with thumb and forefinger, to understand the
meaning of the word no, to get from lying on his stomach,
up to sitting, clapping hands and waving and walking
with support. Your 11-month baby can even stand without
support for a short time, separate the words mom and
dad and roll a ball back to you. Now maybe the child
can also drink from a cup all by himself, understand
simple requests and even go on their own.
