A baby's strongest sense is smell

This is evident from the time they were newborns when they recognise the smell of their mother over other women. At this time they won't know enough to recognise what certain smells are but they will be comforted by smells that remind them of a positive time - like breastfeeding or a cuddle from mum or dad.

At around 7 months of age your baby needs almost as much iron every day as a 30 year old man does!

Iron is important for normal cognitive development. Their brain is growing rapidly in the first year of life so it is important to make sure your little one is getting enough iron in their weaning diet.

Babies have more taste buds than adults which may help to explain their strong feelings towards certain foods

It is normal for them when they experience a new or unusual taste to make a funny face - this isn't a sign that they don't like a food but just an indication that it is a taste they weren't expecting. If they turn their head and refuse to eat the food then this an indication they don't like the taste. But their tastes will change regularly so try again in a couple of days.

Baby on the move! Watch out for crawling or "bum shuffling" soon

Crawling is another big milestone that you and your baby will go through together. Once your baby gets the hang of crawling there will be no stopping them! It’s an exciting time for your baby as they become more independent and can explore even further.

Omega 3 and 6 are essential fatty acids also known as ‘good fats’ or long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPs). They are important for your growing baby as they support brain, eye and nervous system development. These LCPs are found in oily fish e.g. salmon, mackerel and herring . Try and include oily fish in your baby’s diet at least once a week.

At around 8 baby will usually be able to sit well without support for several minutes

Babies do develop differently so some may take a little longer. Encourage your baby to sit up alone by gently moving their legs out into a V shape to give them the balance. And encourage it by placing toys around them - they will love having their hands free to go exploring around them.

Your baby will learn more and more words from you and from those around them. Even though they might not be pronouncing these words yet they are getting closer to it and their babbles will be more pronounced. Keep talking to them to continue their development.
