9 Month Visit: Increasing Independence
Give your baby a calm, brief, and upbeat goodbye. Any distress they may experience usually won't last long.
Allow your baby to start to feed themselves and help them start drinking from a cup. This helps them build important motor skills.
Labeling your own emotions helps your child learn how other people think and feel.
Your active baby can reach new things. Make sure hazardous objects and poisonous substances are locked up and secure.
