Your 11-month-old

from 11 months to 1 year

You’re almost at your baby’s first birthday, and so much has changed over the course of this last year. You may be having trouble keeping up with your little one, who is now, no doubt, moving about with ease - and getting into everything in your home if you’re not careful.

At 11 months, your baby should be cruising around while holding onto the furniture or your hands. He might even let go of your hands to try out a few tentative steps alone or he might even be walking independently. Some babies at this age experiment by standing on their toes or on one leg.

A few particularly adventurous 11-month-olds find that climbing is a fun way to explore. They’ll scale counters, get over their crib railing, and put themselves into some pretty precarious situations. If you have one of these little climbers, don’t provide an easy access route. Move chairs away from tables and countertops so your baby can’t get up high enough to take a nasty spill. Your baby will also love opening drawers and cabinets, so be sure to lock up any chemicals, cleaning products, or cosmetics that are within his reach.

Your baby should be feeding themselves by now with fingers and starting to explore use of a spoon. Your baby’s sense of taste is developing, so keep adding different flavors to the mealtime repertoire.
Make photos with your cute baby, upload to the App. Write briefly about his/her new skills and abilities.
