    Does your baby clap???

    Harrison doesnt clap, but he has just started to bang on stuff if you bang on it first, like his play tray and the floor.

    Its bugged me since I watched eastenders ages ago and Stacy said that Lilly had been clapping for a few weeks..... and she was ment to be about 6months.. :blush: lol

    Gabriel bangs on things with his hand but we're closing in on 11 months and he still doesn't clap.

    Summer's been clapping since about 6.5 months. Probably only because EVERY time she seen my dad he'd continuously sing ''Clap a clap handies!''

    Im pretty sure that what you focus on showing them comes quickest. My LO doesnt clap, but he does kiss cos I often ask for a kiss straight after Ive kissed him xx (now kiss me ha ha)

    Mine clapped, pointed and waved, but only all three towards the end of 8 months. They're a quick learner though and almost walking unaided.

    Your posts intrigue me, I have to be honest. The way you use 'they' rather than he/she always reminds me of that Swedish family who keep their child's gender secret!

    William has only learnt in the last few days and he is nearly ten months old. He learnt to clap and wave within about a day of each other. He always seems to hit milestones in bunches like that. He started babbling, then said Dada two days later. He also pulled himself up within a week of learning how to crawl.

    I think it is just learning style, like adults each child has their own and learns in their own time and in their own way.

    Lol...its no secret. I don't always refer to her as they, but for some reason when I'm typing online I do tend to use they a lot instead of her. It seems more fitting somehow when talking to people who don't know her, so its kind of less personal.
