At 6 months, you and your little one probably have a pretty good mommy-baby groove thing going. You are learning to interpret his cries and he is learning that when he cries, people stop and take notice. Your camera has been working overtime to capture all of his amazing firsts, but in the back of your mind you may be wondering if his development is on track — after all, you've got to think about college, right? For that reason, you've surely asked yourself, what milestones should baby hit at 6 months?
Your baby has made it halfway through her first year on the outside. And in a short time, she's accomplished quite a bit. From experimenting with solid foods to sitting without support, she's so much more than that tiny newborn you used to watch sleep half the day. In the coming month, you can be prepared to watch her sit without support, hold a bottle on her own, and even respond to the sound of her name.
As always, these milestones are meant to be a used as a guide. There's no need to fret if your baby hasn't accomplished everything on this list. Babies are doing a tremendous amount of learning and growing behind the scenes every single day. And though he may not be crawling today, but one day he'll be running, and he'll never stop.
