I spent most of the first your of my baby’s life in a sleep deprived haze.
I had to google everything multiple times, most often at 2am in the morning trying to figure out if waking up every hour was normal (it depends), if my baby was reaching all their milestones (I think so) and what I could expect from them next developmentally (trying to prepare myself – hahaha – nothing can prepare you!)
Once I was out of that, I put together this milestone planner – it’s a neat printable resource that will help you keep track of where your child is at and what you can expect next in the first year. I hope it helps you!

Interesting Facts About Your Baby’s Development
A baby as young as two days old will recognize their mother’s voice.
Your baby’s brain will double in their first year (it’s half the size of yours at one year.)
Your baby’s sense of smell is stronger than yours and they use it to identify their parents.
7-8 MONTHS CRAWLING BABY
- Starts crawling
- Shy with strangers
- Respond with babbling
- Sits without support
Your baby will start to explore the world (your appartment) and most likely you will do that together. Make sure you bring with you knee protectors because this will be really challenging period of your baby’s development.
9-10 MONTHS TALKING BABY
- Says “mama” and “dada”
- Stands while supported
- Eats with fingers
- Use finger to point
This is one of the funniest periods in your baby’s development. Both the mother and the father want their son or daugther to say “mama” or “dada” for a first word and I promiss that you will have a great time “teaching” your baby to do that 🙂
11-12 MONTHS TALKING BABY
- Stands unaided
- Takes a few steps
- Imitates others
