BUT WHAT IF MY CHILD ISN'T DOING THESE THINGS? Don't panic. You're not alone. Some children take a little longer. If your child is in this age bracket and only doing some of these things, it sounds like they're on the right track. If they're not doing any, give them another month or two. If you see no change, check in with your GP.

Spending quality time with your baby is key. Be face to face often. Sing songs. Play with toys together. Talk to them and narrate what you're doing. Set up some play /exploration experiences for them. Turn the TV and radio off- those are distracting. Get talking!
