Not sure if this is the right place to be posting this but I need a little help. I'm starting to think that I am not giving Alexander enough stimulation in the way of games and interaction. What sort of play, etc do you do with your baby? What things can/did they do at 10 months?
Paige started to walk the day she turned 10 months... so alot of her concentration was on that... when she didnt feel like walking (or falling!) she liked to play peekaboo (i would hide somewhere and she would come and fine me then Id jump out!
She absaloutely loved to dance, and would happily bop along for a while to some music. I would give her all sorts of kitchen stuff (bowls, spoons, pots etc) and she would have a rgeat time playing with them. She liked opening boxes and taking stuff out (still does!) We went to a few rhyme time groups during the week and she adored them! In the house, I sat and sang nursery rhymes and did the actions (it was around 9/10 months she started doing twinkle twinkle actions!) Things like humpty dumpty, horsey horsey where I threw her about a bit and was a bit rough. I dont know if your LO likes stuff like that though.
Recently my LO has taken a real interest in looking at pictures in books so I point out animals etc + make animal noises, amuses him and the neighbours probably! He likes switches so pressing anything entertains him (light switches, toy phones, my phone). And he still loves me chasing him around the living room while he crawls away fast as his little legs can carry him!
Is he mobile? My daughter was walking at that age, many babies are crawling. If they are mobile, exploring the house is probably their favorite way of entertaining themselves.
Get some board books. He's a great age for reading and eating the books. I don't remember playing many games besides peek a boo, waving and clapping together. It interfered with her house demolishing agenda.
If he's not mobile yet, give him plenty of floor time to sit and roll and explore toys. I would avoid using too much equipment. (jumperoo, walker, etc)
