Keeping Baby Safe
Imagine the excitement of watching your baby get active. But the more active they become, the higher the chances of injury. The inquisitive drive to discover new things is to be encouraged but take measures to prevent your baby from getting seriously injured. The lists below are by no means exhaustive. You can do a hundred other things to make sure your baby is safe but don’t panic and take away from the fun and enjoyment of parenting!
Physical Development in Your Baby
If you think your baby has it easy for the first few months, think again. Each month or even each day, brings new skills and unique processing and progress. Try not to compare and worry if your little one is behind in any of the physical developmental stages such as crawling, walking and self-feeding as your baby is individual in how they develop. Seek professional advice if you are worried.
Social & Emotional Development in your Toddler
As your toddler matures, their social skills grow. They begin to recognise, exhibit and feel emotions. So far, for the most part, the only form of expression for all their feelings has been crying, but as a toddler they are now able to point or use words for what they want. As they begin to mingle with others their own age they may develop possessiveness of their loved ones and special toys. They are becoming more and more emotional and can swing from excited to frightened and often need you close for reassurance.
Your toddler has a very strong desire to get things right. When they are unable to get things to go their way, they get very frustrated and act out. Depending on your toddler’s temperament, they may experience regular tantrums, whereas others have them occasionally.
