As cute as a cute baby is, it is important to pay attention to their health and well-being. Proper baby grooming is the best way to ensure that your baby is healthy.
Babies start to be self-conscious about their appearance at three months of age. Toddlers and infants will often groom themselves with fingers, so they can feel the rough texture of the skin. They may also use their fingers to touch their nose, ears, eyes, mouth, and chin.
Cute Baby Can Give Expressions After Certain Age
By four months of age, your baby can express the amount of attention they want by touching their face. They can tickle their cheeks, clench their fists, or gently grab an imaginary nose or ear. They can open their mouths wide, with or without the use of their lips. When they reach six months of age, they can run their fingers up and down their chin.
At about eight months of age, your baby can brush their own hair with a comb and a toothbrush. It is recommended that a Bobby pin be used to help guide the comb into the hair to avoid pulling out the ends, as they get older.
After 12 months, a Bobby pin is used to keep the comb from being pulled out of the baby’s head. In this stage, they can move about on their own. And have their ears pinched so they are securely in place.
Toddlers can wear earplugs during this time. But they cannot pin their own ears back or handle noise on their own. They should not be given baths until about one year of age. They can kiss and play with their siblings.
Cute Baby After One Year
Babies at about one year of age should be able to start using a blanket to put on their backs. They can talk, sit up, crawl, walk, and be held. When they get to be two years old, they can roll over and play with a stuffed animal while being held.
Babies at about two years of age should be able to hold their heads up high when asked to do so. At three years of age, they can stand up on their own and can control their head movements. At four years of age, they can sit up on their own, and at five years of age, they can crawl.
Babies at five years of age can handle a pencil and paper, or some crayons, and can imitate the sounds of a game they are playing. At six years of age, they can pick up and play with an object they are holding, such as a doll or dollhouse.
Babies at six years of age can start crawling and will have trouble sitting on their own unless they are taken outside. At seven years of age, they can start crawling on their own and can turn their head to the side to look for items or toys.
At eight years of age, they can handle heavier objects without tiring themselves and at nine years of age, they can put on the teething ring. And also make their own teeth grow. At ten years of age, they can pick up and carry a small book without help.
Babies at ten years of age can hold and feed themselves and can make noises like dogs. At eleven years of age, they can hold and walk themselves, they can cook and bathe themselves, and they can talk, sing, and play games. This is how old a cute baby is!
