Baby 1 year and 7 months: invest in different activities

Let your child know different shapes and textures through play

At one year and seven months, the baby gains more autonomy and is able to perceive changes in the environment. He may even find it funny to be called by another name or when he realizes that we have changed the name of some object he is already used to.

According to pediatrician Guilherme Mori, the child likes to drag, hold and throw objects. It also increases your vocabulary considerably and most of your speech is already understandable.

The baby tries to move in different ways like running, walking in different directions, on its side and on its back. He shows greater interest and likes to help with his parents’ activities, such as cleaning a surface for example.

In addition, he tries to explore the environment in other ways and can perceive different sizes, sizes and weights. Thus, the pediatrician states that the encouragement of parents to promote different activities and in a safe way is very important for the child’s development process.

Mori recommends reading stories, always naming animals and objects, allowing the child to handle the book. Allowing the child’s involvement with the object attracts their attention and is fundamental to their progress.

At this age it is important to allow children to know different shapes and textures. The specialist recommends that parents let the baby play with sand, water, cubes and assembling toys that contain pieces of different shapes and sizes.

However, some precautions are necessary to ensure the safety of the baby during play. Make sure that the objects offered do not have very small parts that can be swallowed, as well as ensuring that none of them are toxic, such as paint.

In addition, from now on it is possible to start the transition from the feeding chair to the table together with the family. Parents should allow the child to participate actively at the time of the meal, and always try to offer colorful and nutritious dishes capable of arousing the child’s interest.
