11 Months Old Baby Activities

Growing every day with multiple changes is a healthy and positive sign of well-expected development for babies.  Every step they take and every word they utter is a clear sign of normal growth and change in them. If a baby is responsive to every move and activity he goes through, it means he is blessed with a very reasonable and healthy life and body. Infants take more attention than older babies. They are young and dependent on other hands and require a lot of attention until they learn to stand and move on their own. 

Babies take their time growing in different sequences. They can be calculated in days, weeks, or months as per the child’s growth cycle. Every child grows with his capacity and speed, and none can judge how long it will take for a child to show any signs of change or development. 

How are changes seen through a child’s development?

Physical changes are found and detected, usually when a child is growing. The most common cycle that shows the prominence of an infant’s growth is month by month cycle. Until the child turns two, his growth periods and age is counted in months so that the doctors can examine them while checkups according to their age -timeline. It’s easy to detect what change is present and in which month it has occurred so that examiners can present results related to their baby’s health to their parents accurately. 

Every trimester of a child’s first year has a growth time where clear signs of development are seen. Usually, they occur after every month, but a sequence of growth is seen every three months. In the first trimester (first till the third month), the infant starts seeing, expressing, and moving frequently. Next trimester (fourth till the sixth month) is the cycle of change in behavior and actions. Third trimester (seventh till ninth month) brings lots of activities and mental changes in the baby, making him a little independent for his actions. Last but not least fourth trimester (tenth till twelfth month) changes the child completely.

How last three months of first-year change the infant?

During the last three months of the first year, a baby is capable of walking and talking along with responding to conversations readily. A healthy infant shows these signs before his first year-end. He will crawl, walk, toddle, jump, hop, respond to voices and his name, eat on his chair, and play games independently. The baby will play with everything he grabs. You will see a wobbling toddler moving around the house very frequently.

A healthy 11 month old baby will stand up while holding on to the furniture and toddle with their support. New foods and flavors will bring interest to the baby, and he will grab away everything you hold and taste it. Small words like mama dada, no, yeah, ok will be heard rarely but frequently. He will get his way done by throwing tantrums and doing his chores independently, ending up in a complete mess. It’s effortless to bring in new activities for better learning as the child reaches his first birthday. Of course, you will have to grab hold of his interest and body first to get him to understand what you are teaching. 

Activities to do with an eleven-month-old baby


Your child is willing to be independent while doing everything on his own, even the events he doesn’t know anything. Everything is his property now, and he will ask for everything he sees. 

Try to bring in independent habits into this phase. Give the baby an eating space like a food chain with a big food bib to protect him from the mess and lots of food at the front. Teaching the child to eat on his own is a lot messy, but once they understand it, they will not give you a hard time eating their meals.

 Keep him busy while giving and taking objects along with instructional words to guide what to do with them. If your child is naughty and taking an interest in more messy activities, give him a separate space and items he likes to play with, and he can play to his heart’s content until he doesn’t want to anymore. 

Keep him busy with bringing out one new item at a time so that they don’t lose interest quickly. Perform acts that you wish to teach them while doing it alongside them. Be present at all times for them so that they will play ensured with attention and will not throw tantrums.

Eating and sleeping habits:

Give your child space to eat and play independently. Let him do what he wants until he calls for you. When a baby grabs on to his physical balance, voice control, and body movement, he wants to explore the world all the time. He will shout, yell, dance, hop, and perform many other acts that will feel funny to you, but this is how your baby is exploring his new developments. Sit with your baby during meal times and sleep when he is sleeping to adjust sleeping and eating independence. 


Your child will test your patience a lot in this phase by throwing tantrums and not listening to you. Keep your calm and let him adjust to his temper first. No will be his favorite word now and will respond through gestures and small expressions too soon. Even though his speech is not clear, he will still react through non-understandable words. The attention span of the infant is right now, so bring in new activities like playing hide and seek paintings, ball games, and flashcard recognition games. Make a habit of reading a book with your baby, and it will help your baby’s sleep and speaking skills.
