Developmental Checklist For Your Baby (6 months old)

Developmental Checklist For Your Baby (6 months old)

Many parents know that babies develop at different rates. Truthfully, I oftentimes felt unsure as to what I should be doing with my babies to help them reach their developmental milestones. Checklists gave me ideasđź’ˇon what I could be working on with my baby at home, in a fun and engaging environment. Here are some suggestions for what you can try out with your 6 month old baby. Remember, you are your baby’s best (and favorite) teacherđź’•

Rolling, rolling, rolling

Place your baby on their tummy or back with toys just out of reach. Does your baby roll between their back and tummy?

Do yoga

Try the snake pose! See if your baby can push up through straight arms on tummy and clear their chest from the floor.

Army crawl

Is your baby crawling on their belly?

Sitting pretty

See if they will sit on their own with/without support for more than 30 seconds.

Balloon fun

Place your baby on their back. Tie a ballon to your baby’s foot. Do they bring their feet towards their mouth or hands?

Hello and hide

Call their name. Hide. See if they look for you. Repeat but move to a different location.

Giggle, giggle

Do something that you know will make your baby laugh.

Open sesame

Bring a spoon toward their mouth. Do they open their mouth?

Almost there

Place a few items slightly out of reach. Does your baby reach for them?

Snack time

If you give your baby a puff, do they use of their fingers to pick it up?

Slow motion

Move a toy from one side to another. Are your baby’s eyes able to follow the toy?

Clap, clap

Practice clapping with your baby.
