This is an exciting age for parents – even though a bit exhausting.
The first crucial year is a thing of the past. By now, your baby has pretty much perfected the art of grabbing, throwing and whining. You’ll notice he/she is now interested in grabbing, kicking, wriggling – basically anything that’s energetic and animated and noisy.
This is an exciting age for parents – even though a bit exhausting. If you haven’t, be sure to install safety gates and rubber edges. At this age, it’s instinctive for them to explore new boundaries and touch things that they’re told not to. You’ll have to be extra vigilant to make sure they’re protected and safe from their discoveries.
This, however, doesn’t mean you should restrict their growth or movements. After all, how will they learn to get up if they don’t fall?
If your toddler is trying to walk with legs apart then relax. This helps them to maintain their balance, even if it makes them look as if they just got off a horse.
