Your baby has completed one year? Congratulations, parents! Along with your baby, you have achieved an important milestone as well. It has been one year since your bundle of joy arrived and your world has never been the same again. You know what we mean!
By now, you have a fair understanding of basic necessities of parenting : when to feed, when to put to sleep, when to entertain, when to bathe your baby etc, amongst other things. If you have introduced solids at 6 months, you also begin to see if you child is curious to experiment with flavours or not. Now, at the first birthday, it’s time to gear up to see many more “firsts” in the year ahead.
In the amazing 12 months since birth, your baby has had an incredible journey of growth and development. Let’s now see what milestones babies achieve at 1 year of age.
Most babies at 1 year would have tripled their birth weight, which is indicative of the growth spurt they experience in the first 12 months. In height, they grow about 10 inches from birth. Their weight gain pattern slows down after one year due to the increase in movements and activities.
Most babies can say “Mama” and “Papa” at this age and have an rapidly expanding vocabulary from thereon. They understand when being spoken to and may even respond with a “No” if they are not keen to follow your instruction. Though they become more social, they may display a preference of certain individuals over others. Becoming shy or anxious in the presence of strangers is fairly common at this age.
At 1 year, babies can stand unassisted and some even start taking their first few steps. They learn to eat with their fingers and can do activities such as turning the pages of a book. They can grasp, move and stack objects using their hands.
A welcome change is in the sleep habits of babies when they turn 1. They sleep better through the night and are ready to drop their morning nap. However, they may still need their afternoon nap to last through a day.
One year also indicates the time to change the food habits of your little one. It’s time to reduce breast milk/formula milk to increase the solid meals on a daily basis. It is helpful to both mother and baby to gradually drop one breast milk/formula milk feeding session at a time.
When your baby turns one, you may decide to wean him/her off breastmilk. Gradually cutting down on the number of times you breastfeed your baby through the day is a right start to completely weaning your baby. The night time nursing is generally the last to be dropped.
Most importantly, remember to take it slow. It is a huge change for your baby as well as you. Commit to weaning your baby only when you are completely ready for it.
So you decide to wean your baby. How do you intend to meet his/her nutritional needs that was being met by breastmilk previously? Thankfully, you can rely on the By GrandMa 1 year baby food chart.
Now that you know what to give your baby once they turn a year old, a few things to keep in mind are:
A word of caution to watch out for allergic reactions, if any. Contact your pediatrician if you suspect any allergic food reactions.
After one year, it is generally recommended to avoid food in puree consistency for babies. (Unless recommended otherwise by the pediatrician due to any medical reason). This allows the baby to develop chewing and swallowing skills. Your baby will indicate his/her readiness to move to solids and finger foods. These indicators could be transferring food from one hand to the other or by moving mouth in chewing motion etc. Eventually, it also helps the child self-feed.
In conclusion, we provide you some tips to feed your 1 year old baby
As they grow older, allow children to be part of food choices at home. Checking for their preferences makes them feel more involved in the dining experience.
Another important tip: Try not to obsess over the weight of your baby. (Moms might think it is easier said than done, but we strongly urge you to try it). If your baby is healthy and active, you do not have to worry about him/her not meeting the weight milestones. Every child is unique and as long as your child is consistent in his/her growth curve, you can put your mind at ease.
