Milestones at 11 Months

Your little one is racing toward that big 1st birthday. Growing more independent by the day, your baby certainly doesn’t like to stay put! What an exciting time!

It’s typical for 11-month-old babies to:

  • Start to take first steps, or walk more and more with wobbly steps; maybe even toddling from 1 piece of furniture to another
  • Put objects in a container and manipulate toys more effectively; start to play stacking games and to explore toys by banging them on anything available
  • Roll a ball toward you (you can roll the ball back and forth for a fun, interactive game)
  • Get excited when mastering an activity or task
  • Shake the head for “no” (or maybe even say “no”)

Just remember: All babies are different and develop at their own pace. Developmental milestones occur over a range of time because of this.

If your infant hasn’t yet reached some of these milestones, it doesn’t necessarily mean something is wrong.

Talk with your baby’s healthcare provider about any developmental concerns, including if your baby ...

  • Is not trying to walk with support
  • Is not interested in interactive play
  • Does not respond to very simple requests or questions
