At 7 months old, your baby is an amazing learner. He is starting to really pick up on the slightest gestures and can look thoughtful, curious, and amused without saying a word. Another thing you can teach your 29-week-old baby is "object permanence," which is the understanding that an object will continue to exist even if it is not seen.
You and Your Baby at Week 29
Playing with a 7-month-old baby can be a blast. At this age, they are learning so much from their surroundings and just want to have fun!
As your baby experiments with language and the art of making sounds, you are going to start hearing lots of fun things. You will hear clucks, raspberries, and "zerberts" that you will swear mean something!
Major Developments for a 7-Month-Old Infant
Seven-month-old babies are really amazing learners. They pick up on the slightest gestures and overt actions. Watch the eyebrows of your little one -- notice how he can look thoughtful, curious, and amused -- all without saying a word.
His jabbering might include many more new sounds this month. Even though he might not be ready to produce a real word yet, he's getting there by listening and watching you closely.
Another thing your baby is learning about right now is object permanence, which is the understanding that an object will continue to exist even if we can't see it. A fun game to play with your 7-month-old infant is "find the ball." It's so simple. With your little one sitting in front of you, take a little ball and hide it nearby. Put it someplace close to your baby, but just out of sight. This is a great little interactive game that teaches your child about object permanence.
