The baby at 1 year and 1 month

Now that he has already celebrated his first year of life and another four weeks later, the baby learns to do more things by himself, developing his independence first and foremost. You will notice in the attitude of your little one year and 1 month (13 months) notable changes in the way they act. He no longer wants to sit in your arms for hours in a row, but he fully enjoys his possibilities of movement and the limits he can impose in contact with others. Find out what your baby's new evolutions and skills are at 1 year and 1 month of life!

The baby at 13 months (1 year and 1 month) most likely has already taken the first steps alone. Also during this period, between 12 and 14 months, babies begin to have active dreams that can agitate him or even wake him from sleep.

Also, another change that can happen to your 13-month-old baby is the appetite that seems to decrease and your lust can turn into a big jerk.

You must not discourage yourself, but just arm yourself with patience and prepare dishes as varied as possible with attractive shapes and colors.

Physical development of the baby at 1 year and 1 month

Many children take their first steps between 9 and 12 months, they get to go smoothly when they turn 14 or 15 months. So, your baby is probably in the middle of the road between moving with support and without help.

Do not worry if your baby still does not dare to give up support with the handles on the walls or tables, the purchase of normal walking can be achieved by some children only at 15 or 16 months, sometimes even later, without something wrong with their locomotor development. A good strategy to motivate him to master the best way is to give him as many opportunities as possible to move without help, but also to avoid holding him in his arms.

He arranges the furniture in the rooms so that he is tempted to move, seeing that he has many ways to support himself. As soon as you notice that your brave baby is trying to take the first small steps autonomously, motivate him to continue with little tricks that give him psychological comfort: your outstretched hands or your back palms, which support his hands.

Another way to help him evolve in his attempts to move easily is to offer him a long-handled toy that can be pushed (a rat, a horse), with a wide, stable base.

Communication and social development of the baby at 1 year and 1 month

Now that it's past his first birthday, your little one probably has the words and words spoken completely and clearly. In this stage of development, the little one is better able to understand what is being said, than to express himself through gestures and words. He is very happy when he proves that he understands what you ask him to do and will not hesitate to give him "directives" in his turn.

Because he is so preoccupied with the acquisition of walking, the baby at 13 months could leave the speech in the background. This is why you should not be alarmed if you do not hear too many replies from his mouth. Also in terms of communication, the baby at 1 year and 1 month can mumble many things without meaning or difficult to recognize, because he imitates everything he hears and mixes up all the chaotic words, saying to the tones that suggest you would say an affirmation or a interrogation, for example. Also, it is already easy for the child to recognize the names of the family members and objects, being happy to bring the mother's ball, if it begs.

Now it is very important to realize that your puppy "records" absolutely everything he hears, at an incredible rate. Instead of uttering words, pronounce the words clearly and correctly name people, places and objects. Speak slowly and cleanly, as simple as possible. Your baby of 1 year and 1 month communicates through gestures (point your finger at pictures or objects you want). Moreover, the gesture begins to develop considerably, being the most convenient way by which the child imitates actions, expresses himself and plays. In the development of language, gestures play a crucial role.

So, help him make the connection between gestures and language, making suggestive comments. For example, when your child shows you he wants something from the fridge, ask him "Do you want to drink something?", Then wait for him to answer by shaking his head or gagging. Then repeat, "Do you want to drink milk? Okay, let's get some milk out of the fridge." This type of communication encourages the child to respond and actively participate in a conversation.

Baby sleep at 1 year and 1 month

Around the age of 13 months, you will notice that the baby begins to change his sleep schedule. The day will prefer a single longer sleeping puppy: it will postpone sleep more often from day 11-12, and then refuse another one at the hours of the afternoon.

Another option is that you will sleep in the first part of the day and then stay awake until evening. Some children immediately adapt to the new sleep program after turning 1 year, while others need several months to adjust. You are the one who can best estimate how much your baby needs to sleep.

Generally, children who reach the age of 13 months need 10-13 hours of sleep out of 24: if they are all accumulated in the night or distributed and during the day, it remains at your discretion, according to the needs of your little one. It may take several weeks until you find the perfect combination for baby sleep intervals.

Baby feeding at 1 year and 1 month

The feeding of the baby begins the great transformation after exceeding the threshold of 1 year of life. Children are now making significant progress on their menu, changing their baby's eating habits quite a bit, in some very similar to adult nutrition. Your mission is to acquaint the child with new flavors and textures.

Food preferences are fixed early in life, so help your little one develop a sympathy for healthy foods from now on. Because his stomach is not roomy, give him small portions of nutrient foods to help him grow big and strong. Avoid giving her sweets and other "empty calories" products, such as pastries, biscuits or, worse, fast food!

Milk should not be missing from the daily menu, because it provides calcium and vitamin D, essential for bone development. You can give them to drink from the canita, gradually removing the bottles from the meal program. Increase your iron intake through fortified meat, fish, beans and cereals.

Continue to monitor any allergic reactions to new foods and avoid giving them products that can drown: popcorn, hard candies, hard fruits, raw vegetables, raisins, whole grapes or nuts. The meal program should be a regular one, with 3 meals a day and 2-3 healthy snacks.
