Baby's first year milestones


Last updated:

During your baby's first year, they will reach various developmental milestones. At 1 month, they'll start visually tracking objects, reacting to sounds, lifting their head briefly, and making eye contact. By 3 months, they'll have better head control, show emotions through smiling and laughing, interact with toys, and recognize familiar faces. At 6 months, expect them to roll over, sit up with assistance, babble, and reach for things. By 9 months, they'll likely crawl or scoot, pull themselves up, engage in interactive games, and comprehend basic words. Finally, at 12 months, they'll take their first steps, speak simple words, self-feed, and point to desired items.
