How do babies change after their first birthday?

So now the baby has cut his first birthday cake and is ready to move to the next year of growth. Your baby’s next destination of development will be progressing in more walking and talking activities along with more flavors to eat and more foods to taste. The baby becomes more independent during his second year, and he is more energetic and active, especially for the mother. Let’s look at some changes that occur after your baby turns one and what actions can be taken to enhance their changing development:

  • The weight of your baby is tripled since birth. The height exceeds about 50% from 9-11 inches, and brain development is 60% working according to the present age. The change in weight will is there when your baby becomes more active.
  • Your baby is standing now, along with taking some small baby steps. If it hasn’t happened, then keep your cameras ready as it can happen anytime now.
  • Some movements will be more prominent, like eating with fingers and turning the pages of a storybook. Your baby is also capable of using household objects like a spoon, telephone, or a hairbrush at this age too. 
  • Sleep timings are changed, and your baby is sleeping more at night rather than day time. Some babies need their afternoon nap at least once so that their schedule is not disturbed. It’s still too early to let them skip their sleep, so make sure to put them to bed between the daytime and let them get tired again for the night. 
  • Your baby is ready for permanent formula or cow milk now. Try high-fat milk rather than low fat as it is necessary for healthy brain development. If you are willing to drop breastfeeding, drop one feed time at a time. In case your child is persistent, try giving him a snack or something to suck on to ignore breastfeed. Distract him with extra activities to keep him away from noticing breastfeed slowly. 
  • The baby is having proper meals with you at the table, so make sure there are no choking hazards near him. Do not give your child whole grapes, pieces of meat, popcorn, or any other solid foods that can get stuck in the throat. Put soft and chewable foods in front of him and let him play and eat on his own.
  • The vocabulary of your baby is widening as he can say words like ‘dada, mama, no, uh-oh,’ and many other small sounds to express his feelings.  Most actions will present the answers, but in a non-vocal way, and they will respond to every other person with small gestures and sounds. Your kid will commonly use the word ‘No,’ so make sure you stay firm on his tantrums. As your child grows, he will find a little anxiety over meeting new people and crying while watching you leave somewhere. The stress of this time passes away soon, so make sure you let him know you are there at all times.
