At this age, your child may …

  • Respond to one or two simple instructions
  • Anticipate the “surprise” phrase in favourite children's songs
  • Try walking, with hand-holding help from you

“A great way to soothe your child? Listen to music. Find the music you like and just hold them.”

Anne, mum of Jason
