15 Tips to ensure the full development of your baby

Do not be scared! Your baby will continue to grow rapidly in the coming months. The boy at eight months weighs, on average, from 6.50 kg to 8.50 kg. Girls weigh on average 250 g less than boys (6.25 kg to 8.25 kg). Around 12 months, babies tend to triple the weight they were born with and measure 71-81 cm in height. The size of the head will increase less than in the first six months. The average head size at 8 months is 45 cm in circumference; at 12 months it is 47 cm. However, each baby has its own developmental rhythm.

When the baby starts to stand alone, you may find the baby's posture strange. The belly is protruding, and the back is enveloped and swinging back and forth. Although it looks weird, this posture is perfectly normal and will only settle more when the baby develops a greater sense of balance between 12 and 24 months of age.

The baby's foot is annoying because at this age it is covered by a thick layer of fat. But between the second and third year of life, the fat disappears and the curvature of the foot will appear.
