By the end of nine months, your baby will reach these important developmental milestones:

  • May be afraid of strangers or be clingy with familiar adults
  • Has favorite toys 
  • Understands "no"
  • Makes a lot of different sounds, like "mamamama" and "babababa"
  • Points at things
  • Watches the path as something falls
  • Plays peek-a-boo and looks for things she sees you hide
  • Stands, holding on to something
  • Can get into a sitting position
  • Sits without support
  • Pulls to stand
  • Crawls

Call your doctor if your baby:

  • Doesn't support herself on her legs
  • Doesn't babble
  • Doesn't play games involving back-and-forth interaction
  • Doesn't respond to own name or recognize familiar people
  • Doesn't look where you point
  • Doesn't transfer toys from one hand to another

If you don't have a doctor or would like a free developmental screening, call Home Safe at (561) 383-9822 or 2-1-1 and ask for Help Me Grow.
