What should my baby be doing at 8 months?

What is normal behavior for a 8-month-old baby?

At this age, babies are itching to bust a move, so set ’em down and watch ’em go! Your 8-month-old baby is busy, busy, busy — busy exploring, learning, moving around and engaged in more sophisticated interactions and play. That means you’ll be plenty busy keeping up with your little one too.

What age do babies wave bye bye?

Learning how to wave bye-bye is an important milestone for an infant that usually occurs between the age of 10 months and a year. A study in Pediatrics International found premature infants mastered the bye-bye gesture significantly later than full-term babies and used different hand and wrist motions.

When do babies respond to their name?

While your baby may recognize their name as early as 4 to 6 months, saying their name and the names of others may take until somewhere between 18 months and 24 months. Your baby saying their full name at your request is a milestone they’ll likely reach between 2 and 3 years old.

How do I teach my baby to wave hello?

How can I encourage my baby to wave? Simply show them how it’s done. Repetition of waving and smiling at your little one will encourage them to try it themselves. Move baby’s hands for them while saying “wave bye to-bye to grandpa” will also help teach them to wave.
