Baby's First Year Development
During your baby's first year, focus on their development and growth. In the initial weeks, concentrate on newborn care, including feeding, burping, and diaper changes. As they grow, introduce tummy time, textures, and communication through talking and singing. From 4-6 months, start solid foods, encourage reaching for toys, and establish a bedtime routine. Between 7-9 months, help your baby sit up, explore, and interact with others. Finally, in the 10-12 month period, support their first steps, language development, and fine motor skills. Regular pediatrician check-ups and celebrating milestones are essential throughout this journey.
