OLDER BABY
6-12 MONTHS

Your baby's brain continues to grow at a pace in response to their environment and the love and care that you give as a parent. By the age of 1 years old, your baby's brain has doubled in size.By this stage babies are really starting to show interest and explore the world that they live in. They are beginning to experiment with their own abilities to move around and make different noises. Babies at this stage love to look into mirrors and enjoy watching facial expressions. This is a stage where babies gain confidence but may face anxiety or separation fears  (separation anxiety) when left by their main caregiver or when meeting a stranger.

For a parent, this is usually the stage when life feels like its getting back to some kind of (new) normal with routines in place. Some parents may have also started back to work and their baby has started attending childcare. This new normal can throw up new issues like choosing the right daycare, coping with separation anxiety and dealing with parental issues of guilt when leaving a baby in the care of others.
