Baby Development: Your One Year Old

 

Your 12 month old baby

Your baby will probably be able to…

 

 

 

Physical 
Development

 

Move – crawling, rolling, shuffling, coasting on furniture

Bounce to music

Throw toys

Point

Be better at picking things up

 

 

Cognitive Development

 

Better understand a routine – know what is
coming next in a sequence

Imitate actions and noises after they have happened

Be aware of someone else being upset 
or happy

 

 

Language and
Communication

 

Say some simple words

Follow simple instructions

Say more expressive babble

Know how to use her voice

 

  

Emotional and
Social Development

 

 

Enjoy and respond to songs and actions

Will want to be close to a familiar adult

Have likes and dislikes

Enjoy games

Imitate other people

 

Developmental Leaps

Each leap brings changes in behaviour, awareness, mood and sleep and your baby may seem unsettled and clingy

 

41-47 weeks – learning about sequences and putting things together,
more active play, observing and imitating the people around him, greater movement.
