Your 8 month baby
Once your baby has been eight months, she or he is
very active and busy with their new skills, like crawling,
and is eager to learn more. Now everything is so much
more fun for your baby is 8 months since the motor skills
in his or her hands have been developed and coordination
has improved. It is a time with a lot of discoveries
and lessons and above all lots of laughter!
Your baby continues to develop his sound and his attempts
to speak real words. Perhaps it is this month your baby
says the first words, maybe mom or dad. To understand
all the words are still not that good but your eight-month
baby can now understand the meaning of certain words,
such as the word "no."
Your baby can still be entertained by her reflection
and it is the basis for many smiles, despite the fact
that babies do not really know who's looking back in
the mirror. Now, the 8-month baby is able to rely on
his legs when you hold him or her upright. She or he
should be able to eat a biscuit all by himself, picking
up objects and turn in the direction of a voice or sound.
You will see that your 8-month baby is able to move
something from one hand to the other and go from having
slept on my stomach up in a sitting position too easily.
Your baby might even get up to standing position from
a seated position and go through to keep the furniture.
Best of all perhaps is that your baby can also pick
up small objects using thumb or forefinger, known as
the pincer grip. Your 8-month baby likes to clap, wave
goodbye and play peekaboo.
