BABY GROWTH PROGRESS IN 30 MONTHS
The complete information about baby growth progress month by month with all explanation according to baby development.
Please keep in mind that all babies are unique. Whether your baby reaches milestones early or late, she has her own developmental path to follow. The dividing lines between these months are very fuzzy. If you have any concerns or questions about your baby’s development, please check with her health care provider.
Around the time babies learn to pull up to stand, they also learn to climb. It is a different skill but also involves coordination of legs, shifting weight and using the arms to pull the body up.
Stairs are often irresistible to the young climber. Moving down the stairs is a different story for baby. It requires skills that she will not develop for a few more months.
Parents have to be very attentive of children climbing stairs. We highly recommend placing baby gates at the bottom and top of stairs to prevent unsupervised explorations and accidents.
Climbing On Everything
Babies will also try to figure out ways to climb on top of furniture. Around this time, some ambitious babies make early attempts to climb out of the crib by stepping onto their bumpers. Be sure to place the crib in the lowest setting. If baby shows an interest in climbing and is placing her feet on top of the bumper pad while gripping the rail, it is time for bumper removal. This should buy you time before baby is big enough to master how to get out of the crib. Keep in mind, most babies do not successfully climb out of the crib until close to their second birthday, and some babies never climb out.
The Kitchen and Safety
Kitchens are a popular spot for baby to explore while a parent is (trying to) fix a meal. Unfortunately, they are also a space that can be dangerous for baby if safety precautions are not taken.
Briefly we’ll remind you of a few warning areas in the kitchen to watch.
Lock the oven if you can. Extra-inquisitive babies who can pull themselves up to stand are capable of opening the oven door to explore. The same goes for the dishwasher -- especially with sharp utensils inside waiting to be washed or put away.
Holding baby on your hip and stirring a hot pot can lead to disaster. Watch out for pots on a stove with handles facing out; it's best to use back burners when possible. Keep cleaners and plastic bags in a cabinet with a childproof lock securely fastened. There are many ways to make the kitchen a safe place for baby to practice new skills.
Solid Food Revisited
Baby now is very clear on her food preferences. She has a distinct taste of what she does and does not like.
It is not uncommon for parents to wonder how they should react to babies throwing food over the side of the highchair or choosing to play with their food with their hands instead of eating.
Independence -- Even at the Dinner Table
Baby’s interest in doing more things independently is true for the feeding experience as well. Often, it is not the food that baby is getting upset about, but her frustration in wanting to feed herself . One solution is to give her a "baby" spoon to hold while you continue to spoon her food.
Baby has become quite adept at using her fingers. Sometimes making the jump to finger foods is frightening for parents who are afraid of their children choking. Try very small, soft pieces of food that will practically dissolve in baby’s mouth such as pieces of fruit.
Texture is another factor in baby accepting food. It is important to make the jump from mushy, strained foods to soft solids so that baby can become accustomed to the different textures and coordination required to eat these foods.
Your baby still receives nutrition from her bottle or breastfeeding. As her body’s nutrient demands change, she’ll become more receptive to solids.
As baby is striving for independence, becoming more adept at using her body and eating new exotic foods, she may decide not to breastfeed anymore. Most women think that they’ll have to make the first move toward ending the breastfeeding experience, so this can come as a big surprise.
It can be very sad to witness your baby pushing you away as you try to have her to latch on. But it can also be liberating for both of you. Baby is telling you that her body is ready for the nutrients that she receives from solids. And she is really interested in attending to her new developing skills.
While no longer the small baby ready at any minute of the day to attach to her once favorite object, your breast, she still needs your closeness -- just in a different way.
And you may notice as a result of no more breastfeeding a few more pounds shed off your body. Some mothers maintain an extra layer when breastfeeding that just fall off afterwards.
Congratulate yourself for breastfeeding this long and providing the best nutrients that you could for your child!
While you may be amazed at baby’s nonstop interest in moving and exploring, you may not notice that baby always keeps an eye on your location. She uses you as her safe, home base from which to start exploring. She will venture out and explore but always wants to know where she can find you if she needs a hug or wants to show you a toy. She relies on you for comfort and to "refuel" before launching out again.
This is an important step in her growing independence. She’ll only be interested in exploring her world with the trust of having her primary caregiver close by.
