After the first six months of your baby’s life it may seem like everything begins to fly by. In terms of cognitive and physical development, a lot of changes take place quickly before your child’s first birthday. From six month’s of age until a baby is a year old, he or she begins to understand the difference between animate and inanimate objects and can start to grasp that an object continues to exist even if it cannot be seen. Your baby may begin to crawl and display signs of being able to pick up objects and transfer them from one hand to the other. Closer to 12 months, a baby can sit and stand up without assistance and may start walking without your help. The tools a baby learns during the first year of life become the basis for development in the second year. Read the infographic below to learn more about the various milestones your baby will hit.
