Milestones

The world around me

You might notice that:

  • I move my eyes and then my head when I want to look at things.
  • I like to look around for things that I would like to play with.
  • I smile at things that I like to play with.
  • I like to kick or shake things that make a noise, like a mobile or rattle, over and over again!

Development clues:

  • Babies need to develop relationships with grown ups.
  • Babies need to explore lots of different things to find out what they can do with them.

How you can help me learn:

  • Introduce me to lots of different people.
  • Let me hold your finger or scarf.
  • Let me play with toys that make different noises.
  • Let me look in mirrors.
