Growth and Development
Your infant should be walking on his/her own, can speak 5-6 words, drink from sippy cup without your assistance and tries to copy or imitate what mom or dad are doing. Praise your child when they do a particular task well and set limits. Make it a habit to read to your child as often as possible as this will foster their love for learning.

Continue with a balanced and healthy diet. Your child should be eating in a high chair at the table with the rest of the family and they should be feeding themselves or at least trying to.

Growth and Development
Ready for a challenge? That’s right, potty training! This is an important task you and your child will undertake during this period. Most children are ready to potty train between the ages of 18 months to 3 years but every child is different. If your child can keep a diaper dry for 2 or more hours, doesn’t like wearing a diaper or shows interest in the potty you should capitalize on this opportunity to teach them, just remember to be patient.

By now, your child should be taking their shoes off, be able to identify their body parts such as their eyes, ears, and nose. They should be capable of saying 10-15 words such as mama, dada, dog, and cat.

Continue with a balanced and healthy diet.

No scheduled immunizations
Today is your baby’s follow up visit to the lab for a complete blood count (CBC) and Lead screening.

Growth and Development
If potty training has been unsuccessful and you have stopped for a short time, now is the time to try again. Planning for frequent potty breaks can help establish a routine even if the child does not use the potty, it’s a good idea to have them sit and try at set intervals. Play time is important. Encourage your child to be active but be mindful of safety and take precautions to baby proof your home.

Your medical provider may ask that you complete a routine developmental screening known as the M-CHAT during this visit.
