This is a busy time for your baby! At 10 months old, your little one is making rapid progress in their growth and development, and you may be amazed at how soon their personality starts emerge. In addition to being more active and communicative, this is the point at which you’ll start to see what kind of person your child may grow into — shy or extroverted, cautious or adventurous, and more. You may even recognize a little of yourself or your partner in your baby’s early personality!
What else can you expect at this stage of development? Read on to find out.
As you’ve probably noticed, this is a very mobile time for your baby. By this stage, most infants can comfortably crawl, pull themselves up from a seated to a standing position, and walk around furniture while holding on with their hands. Remember, it won’t be long before your child can stand independently, and he or she will be walking soon afterward!
Around this time, you’ll also find that your baby’s hand-eye coordination becomes much more impressive. A combination of strong vision and confident crawling means that they’ll see small objects at a distance and quickly move to retrieve them in the pincer grip of their fingers. This means that you and other adults need to be much more mindful of choking hazards and other dangers in the baby’s immediate area.
