At 10 months
your baby is mastering feeding himself
This seemingly simple task requires many skills: pinching small items between forefinger and thumb, raising it to the mouth, pulling the food in with the lips, and using the tongue to push the food from the front to the back of the mouth. It’s no wonder mealtime can be exciting and, at times, frustrating for your little one – and you!
- Chewing and swallowing
- Using his fingers to feed himself
- Baby teeth coming in
- pulling themselves up to a standing position, holding on to furniture or your hands
- understand simple words and react to them.
Sometime between 6 months and a year, your baby’s first tooth will appear. You will need to keep your baby’s new teeth healthy by cleaning them every day.
Developmental milestones in the last month before becoming a toddler also include dancing to music, showing interest in books, sharing toys for a short period of time, feeding itself, exploring surroundings, forming attachment to objects, extending arms or legs when getting dressed, pulling off socks and hats and pushing away what he or she doesn’t want.
