Looking for the best toys for your ten month old? Maybe a gift idea for a baby in your life? Here are the very best ideas!
I don’t know about you, but my baby REALLY got on the move at 10 months old. Not only was he crawling, but pulling himself up and walking along furniture like crazy!
This is when he started really getting into mischief – opening cabinets, unrolling toilet paper, getting into the dog bowl.
It also is a really fun age. He is really starting to seem like his own person. He is able to follow commands a bit and start to play games. And he is always ready for activities!
What’s going with your baby at ten months?
Physical Development at 10 months
At ten months old, you baby is probably crawling and pulling themselves up. They can do things like clap 2 toys together and mimic your movements.
Luke went from crawling to standing to moving SO QUICKLY at this age, it was like every day he learned something new. Be prepared and get baby proofed!
At ten months old, Luke really hit a growth spurt! He quickly required 12 month clothing and really started looking big. Be prepared as they are eating more and more real food that they might really grow.
Cognitive Development at 10 months
Your ten month old is getting really smart. One thing that I thought was really cool was that he started to recognize objects in a pile (like his pacifier in a pile of toys) and grab it specifically.
They also are probably getting closer to talking, making a lot of more distinct noises and mimicking your noises. It’s so fun!
Even if they can’t talk, it seems like they are really listening to you talk and understanding what you are saying.
At ten months old, Luke started being able to respond to commands like “come here” and “no”. He didn’t verbally respond but would look and stop or crawl towards me. Or, at least smile because he knows he is being mischievous.
Social Development at 10 months
10 month olds love other babies! They are really getting so they want to interact with others – so try to get them together with other babies when you can! Sign them up for classes or take them places where other babies hang out, like the library or parks.
