Your Baby at 11 Months

Here are growth and development patterns of a child at 11 months. Each step listed represents an average of a time span of 6 to sometimes 12 weeks that is considered within the normal range for that behavior. Don't be concerned if your child is not doing something listed here. Each baby develops at his own pace.

Body Movement

  • Holds on loosely as he cruises along the furniture. May forget to hold on.
  • May be able to push up from floor with hands to stand momentarily.
  • May stand alone briefly and be able to turn.
  • Bends halfway over to look through legs to see an upside-down view of the world.
  • Climbs down backward without falling down.

Eye-Hand Coordination

  • Has a firmer grasp; can hold two objects in one hand.
  • Watches intently what her hands are doing.
  • Pats, pokes, pinches and rolls various objects.
  • Places objects down deliberately.
  • Enjoys putting small objects into a large container.
  • May carry a spoonful of food to her mouth, but spills most of it because her wrist action is still developing.
