The moment your baby arrives, he/she will take up a lot of your time and attention. Soon enough, it’ll be time to blow off the candles on your little darling’s first birthday. In this one year, your baby will learn and develop substantially. But this one-year journey also means your baby will outgrow a lot of things, setting the stage for newer challenges to be conquered. So, do these 15 things before your baby turns 1 to help them in their growth journey:
15. Stack Away Baby Toys
Those cute newborn clothes are not the only things your baby will outgrow. No, your baby doesn’t need those cradle chandeliers, play gyms, etc.. So, just pack ’em and stack ’em up.
14. Get Learning And Skill Development Toys Instead
Get toddler toys for your child. These come in attractive colors and are interactive. This kind of toys will help in providing mental stimulation for your baby and improve their motor skills.
13. Make Your Home Toddler Safe
They’ll crawl, start to walk, and topple over often soon after they turn one. So, make sure the edges around your home are taped; close all low-lying plug-points; remove overhanging wires from their reach, etc. Get expert help if necessary.
12. Make Sleeping Areas Safe
By now, your baby will grow slightly bigger for his/her cradle or crib. So, make sure you reduce the height of the crib/cradle. Place some soft pillows or carpet the area around to cushion any potential falls.
11. Communicate In Clear Words
Earlier, you’d blabber or coo to your baby. But from now on, speak in clear words. You’ll be surprised how quickly your baby will catch the ‘Ma-Ma’ and ‘Da-Da’ kind of single-syllable words.
