What Your Baby Can Do/ What You Can Do to Connect With Your Baby
I can walk on my own by holding your hand.
I am learning to crawl up stairs but can’t come down yet.
I can throw a ball and turn pages in books.
Give your child just enough help to reach his goal. If he wants to stand, let him hold your fingers for balance.
Encourage your child to turn the pages when you read together.
Support your child as he practices new skillslike stair-climbing. Children need time to work on these new skills…safely!
I may use some words like “dudu” for “dog.”
I can show you what I want through my actions. I may bang my high chair when I want more food.
If you ask me to, I can point to a body part or a picture in a book.
Choose books about things that interest your child. Children often like books about kids their age doing things they like to do.
Build your child’s vocabulary. If she points to or says “bus,” you can say: The school bus is driving down the street.
Name the people, places, and things that your child sees each day: That’s a garbage truck taking our trash.
Play games that involve following directions: Throw the ball to me.
I say “no” or show you in other ways that I have my own ideas and want to do things on my own.
Involve your child in self-help tasks like washing his hands.
Follow your child’s lead. Let him choose what toys or games to play.
I copy actions I’ve seen other people do, like stir a pot or talk on the phone.
Join in your child’s play. If you see her putting a blanket on her toy bear, you might ask: Does Teddy need a bottle before bed?
Give her objects that she sees in “real life,” like play dishes, a toy telephone, a small dust broom.
