9 to 12 months understanding the world

 Developmental milestones include:

  • He can see and is interested in small objects which he reaches out for
  • He looks in the right direction for objects that he has dropped
  • He starts to examine objects closely before putting them in his mouth

Signs that suggest a developmental problem:

  • He isn’t curious about new objects
