Toddler milestones for your toddler cover a few basic areas.
Here’s a list of common milestones and the ages those milestone occur. Keep in mind that toddler development varies greatly, so that your child could be behind or ahead by up to 6 months, yet still be within the normal range.
Your 12 month old toddler milestones look like this:
Your child’s first birthday marks the beginning of their toddler years. Toddler milestones include:
Your child should be able to pick up small items (think Cheerios) with her thumb and forefinger. She should also be able to pull herself up to standing, and to stand while holding on. She should understand simple words like “no” and “bottle,” (or another important object) and be able to say a few words, though only her parents may understand her speech.
By 18 months toddler milestones look like this:
Your child should be walking. He should also be able to say about 5 to 10 words at a minimum. Some children are also able to put together one or two words together, such as “want cuppie.” He can also understand simple directions, such as “give me that,” or “bring me that.” He should also be able to make some sort of marks on a paper with a crayon.
Your 14 month old toddler milestones look like this:
Your toddler should be able to put two or three words together to form a short sentence. They should be walking well, although they might still be derailed by unexpected obstacles in their path. She should be able to ask for some things by name, and she should use words or gestures to make her needs known.
Many are also interested in books; your 24 month old should be able to turn the pages – though they might get carried away and rip a page here and there.
