Hi ladies, Kody will be one on the 22nd Feb and i'm getting concerned about his development. I had a letter from the hospital listing all the things he 'should' be doing by the time he reaches one, for example if you say 'get the ball' he should know what it is and go get it. My son wouldn't have a clue what this meant!! It also said he should be able to wave bye bye, and he won't.
I'm also worried about what he's eating, he's still on the baby jars of food (for his age group) and this week i've started giving him toast in the mornings, which he loves, he'll also eat jacket potatoe with pasta, but if i tried to give him a proper meal he would just heave on it, even if it's cut up really small. He's started self-feeding his toast, but i have to give him a piece at a time, if i was to give it all to him he'd just play around with it and throw it on the floor instead of eating it. The only reason i'm getting concerned is because i have a lot of friends with babies at 7-8 months and they can eat sausages and all sorts! He just seems to be so far behind what all their babies are doing!
He's crawling and pulling himself up, walking around the furniture etc and looks like he'll be walking any day soon.... have i been keeping him as a baby for too long instead of leaving him to it or is there something wrong with him? I'm expecting my second baby now, so maybe it's just my hormones that have me worrying so much, I don't know! If you have any advice i would be very greatful! Thank you!
