What your baby might be doing in the first 12 months

I am almost certain babies these days are much stronger than when we were born! Mum’s & Dad’s tell us often at their photoshoot how their newborn was lifting their head and looking around as soon as they were born! With a lot more to stimulate babies these days and more interaction from BOTH parents, there is so much opportunity for them to develop into amazing little humans! Here are a few things your baby MAY be doing at 3 of the big milestones…..

It’s important to stress that not all babies and toddlers do things at the same time or at a consistent pace. We think it’s magical that each child’s development is unique and also teaches us as parents too!
