Between 6 and 9 months, your baby will begin to sit and play much more independently. Their sense of humor emerges and babies become very social as their language comprehension rapidly grows.
Here are some typical milestones you may see in your 6 - 9 month old:
Language & Cognitive
  • Understands family member’s names and familiar words such as “blankie” and “bottle”
  • Responds appropriately to own name
  • Babbling becomes more complex and may contain a recognizable “mama” or “dada”
  • Explores their environment using all senses
  • Holds a book and vocalizes or pats pictures while being read to
Physical & Motor
  • Sits independently and may begin to crawl
  • Stands while holding onto a low table or sturdy toy
  • Begins holding objects between thumb and forefinger (pincer grasp)
Social & Emotional
  • Follows your attention when you are looking at something
  • Enjoys “peek-a-boo” and other surprise games
  • Fusses when Mom or Dad leaves the room
