WHEN THE FIRST BIRTHDAY APPROACHES

Anytime from one year onwards your baby will be standing without your support and will begin to walk by themselves. They may start anytime between the age of ten and 18 months. If he/she's not walking by 18 months, contact your health advisor or doctor.
Your baby may be able to throw an object, point and even wave "bye-bye". Listen out for "mama" and "dada" around this age as well as lots of babbling. He/she'll begin to understand the word "no" at around 12 months of age.
Your baby will still be sleeping around 14 hours in every 24 hours but the two daytime naps may be getting a little shorter.
