MY BABY

6-10 MONTHS

The first steps in life

Infants should be exclusively breastfed - i.e. receive only breastmilk - for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth, development and health. "Exclusive breastfeeding" is defined as giving no other food or drink - not even water - except breastmilk. It does, however, allow the infant to receive oral rehydration salts (ORS), drops and syrups (vitamins, minerals and medicines). Breastmilk is the ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants. If this is not an option Unimilk provides a great alternative.

Baby’s movements become more noticeable as he rolls over, sit on his own or lift his arms when you try to pick him up. He can now use his fingers to pick up toys and other objects. He can speak certain words by now and the teething process also starts.

SIX MONTHS OLD

SEVEN MONTHS OLD

A seven month old baby learns to hold things using his hands. He can easily sit on his own and can even stand for a short interval while holding on to a chair. At this stage, the baby starts to crawl to reach out to different objects that catch his interest.

Now that he is eight months old, the baby is constantly moving and perfecting his skills to crawl. He would try to stand at every opportunity that he gets whether he is leaning against the sofa or a table, he will pull himself up so that he can stand with a support.

EIGHT MONTHS OLD

NINE MONTHS OLD

Babies have a better understanding of things at this stage and they know what can possibly harm them. Your baby may be cruising at this stage and have better coordination with his hands.

The baby tries to speak more often now and if you help him with speaking, he can easily develop the skill. He moves around the house exploring things that attracts his attention.
