Your Baby’s Development – 6 to 9 months

Your baby is six months old – half-way to their first birthday! The next three months will be a time in which your baby’s understanding of words rapidly increases. They may not be saying words yet, but they are storing all the knowledge in their clever brain. Over the coming months, your baby will start to use gestures to communicate, so now is a great time to use hand signs with your baby. Learn baby sign language by clicking here.

Your everyday interactions now are so important and will make a huge difference to the rate at which your child learns new words. Find out a little more about how your baby is learning to communicate below.
