Clearly, every parent gets more and more excited because of their baby’s milestone every year. Parents are overwhelmed by the amazing things that babies can do, and it is pretty cute. Here, we have some things that can help you if your baby is 2 years and 4 months old. Have a look:
Weight and height
The baby’s weight and height are important factors in their growth. Their body starts growing bigger and bigger. It is a slow process but at the age of 2 years and 4 months, it is significant as they look bigger than the previous year. At the age of 2 years and 4 months, the baby must have a weight around 27 lb to 29 lb. that means around 13 kg. It can be a little less or little more, but it should be around this figure. When their weight increases, there’s also height growth. So, at this age, their height must be in between 33.7” to 35.1” that is 86 in cm. Boys and girls could have different weights and heights but there shouldn’t be a significant difference.
Babies at this age could have major milestones like:
The baby starts using small words but by the age of 2 years and 4 months, he/she starts speaking full words and even some short sentences. Sentences like where is mommy? And why type of sentences with 3 to 4 phrases. Their words are 50% understandable for their parents and other family members. They understand and use the pronouns like I, me, you, they, etc. They can say their name and know themselves who they are.
The babies at this age understand a little bit about playing and they engage in any playing activity.
Potty training: This is the perfect time to potty train your toddler. It is the age when babies understand the need for this and also they can’t resist the training.
Baby’s health & nutrition
Whether your babies are growing two years or more, they can get sick and they require proper nutrition that is required for a toddler under 3 years. You can give them yogurt, fruits, snacks, and cheese along with the skimmed milk.
Suggestion on the activities
They develop emotional and social skills like they know when they need a diaper change and when to play with other kids. That means they have developed cognitive skills. The babies in this age can enjoy playing with their blocks and latch boards by assembling them. Any toys that need pushing and pulling like cars, carts, and planes can really enhance their motor skills. So, give them things like that and try to let them sleep on a bed instead of a cot.
