Week 1 & 2

Now, your baby can understand clearly and react to you in a better way; he can understand when you say NO to him. By 11 months, your baby can speak few words, crawl and cruise around the house and try to walk without your help which makes him more of an individual every day. As babies begin to walk, it may seem like bow legs but over the course of development, the legs and ankles will strengthen and straighten out.

Safe Toys for your Baby

It was only yesterday, you held him in your arms as a newborn and he is already 11 months old. As he’s growing up fast, everything around him becomes his playmates and anything he can hold becomes his toy. You can get the right set of toys to make his fun time more interesting:

  1. Books: At this age, children get excited to flip through the pages of a book. They will enjoy the colourful pictures as visual treat and love to touch and feel the textures that can be rubbed. Buy story books for kids below 18 months so you can use them for a long time.
  2. Balls: As your little bundle of joy can stand now, bouncing the ball becomes even more exciting for him. Balls that come with fun features like silly sounds, lights etc., will entice him more.
  3. Push Toys: They are perfect for this stage because it is a chance to improve his walking skills. Go for a heavily weighted push toys so that your child can easily lean on it and move across the house. Children at this age enjoy pushing and pulling the toys as new mobility training.
  • Educational Toys: They include building blocks, shape sorters etc., which will give him amusement while stacking the blocks and watch them tumble down. You can buy big shape sorters in different colours and sizes and opt for wooden blocks over plastic ones.
  • Toy Telephone: If your baby loves to mimic your actions, buy him a toy telephone. Although they don’t know how to dial or converse, they will try to talk gibberish which will also help to improve their social interaction skills.
