When a baby clocks 10 months, he must have already made his first crawling attempts. It is the time to perfect this type of locomotion.
Some babies just skip crawling and jump right into walking, so don’t worry if your baby doesn’t crawl at 10 months.
Child's Development at 10 months
By the age of 10 months, most babies can pull themselves up and walk along with furniture and objects, according to healthpally.
Sometimes standing freely works for a short time without holding on. The baby learns to walk best when he is walking with non-slip socks or barefoot.
The baby can now sit safely. They sit in the high chair to eat and they can also go on their first bike excursions because the baby is now also ready for the child’s bike seat.
The fine motor skills of the hands are further developed. With the help of the index finger and thumb, the pincer grip, the smallest crumbs or lint can be picked up from the floor.
This month shows that the baby is developing more and more of its own will and self-awareness.
What Role should parents play?
Reading Stories: This month, your kids are getting more interested in books.
Make music with everyday objects such as wooden spoons, pots, etc, chaktty advised.
Build towers with bowls, catch soap bubbles, and do some exercises to Catch fun.
Water features (for example emptying water from one bucket into the other).
For the sake of the baby’s health, more hygiene must now be observed, especially when other family members bring in a lot of dirt from the outside of the apartment is shared with pets.
The baby now moves through the whole apartment and also picks up things from the earth that are neither intended for the baby’s hand nor the baby’s mouth.
It should be vacuumed or wiped more often. The use of germicidal cleaning agents is not necessary.
Excessive hygiene can be just as harmful to health as too much dirt and bacteria.
Since the baby’s hand goes into the mouth more often, the hands should be washed more than usual to remove lint, dog hair, and potting soil.
Some babies’ skin needs a little more care because after spending time on the playground or in the sandpit, a bath is more often than usual.
Healthy Diet for 10 month old babies
The eating plan for the eighth and ninth months can largely be maintained during this month as well.
The lunch porridge no longer has to be so finely pureed for the baby. Small bits can be included to help the baby learn to chew.
However, mothers should be prepared for the fact that not every baby will accept this piece of food.
Some vehemently refuse to eat anything other than finely pureed food until the twelfth month or even longer.
That is fine and should be accepted. Parents should only make sure that the porridge then contains all the necessary nutrients and that the diet is not too one-sided.
The baby may already be taking on other foods, such as a piece of a bread roll or a rice waffle, to practice chewing with them.
The baby’s curiosity about the food of the grown-ups grows. The motto should now be: The baby can try everything, but does not have to.
Language and Communication of the baby
The baby is now really talkative and already understands a lot of what the parents tell him.
Especially recurring wording will recognize it very soon. It also understands the word “no” and its context.
Finger games and rhymes are now a great way to stimulate your baby’s understanding of speech.
Even in normal contact, you should talk to the baby as much as possible.
In everyday life, things can be called by name and what the mother does with them. Even if they do not yet understand the words or the context, their sense of language is trained.
If the baby is babbling, parents should respond and respond even if no one understands what the baby is trying to say, sexpally advised.
The positive reaction motivates the little one to keep babbling and trying out new sounds.
Body language is also being used more and more when the baby wants something and it communicates a lot with gestures.
The finger is pointed in the direction in which it would like to be carried or it points to toys which it would like to have.
