1-2 Year Milestones
The transformation seen in babies from new born into confident, communicating and social 12 month old child is amazing!
Babies physically mature from a tiny being with very little control of their head making lots of random leg kicking and arm flailing movements, to a mobile traveller who is crawling with speed and agility, can stand and may even be able to walk a few steps alone. Sitting up is easy and offers exciting possibilities to observe the world and engage with it. The babies are now communicating all the time, soaking up new words at a tremendous rate.
The milestones below will give an idea in general of what progress could be expected but please know that some children might take longer or some might achieve a few of these milestones earlier than indicated.
