VTECH: The First Six Months

Ask The Expert Milestones: 9-12 Months
Dr. Lise Eliot 

Early Brain Development Expert

VTech, the creator of the Electronic Learning Products (ELP) category, is a world leader of age-appropriate learning products. Since 1980, VTech has been developing high-quality, innovative educational products that enrich children’s development through fun and smart play.

Babies’ growth and development during the first year is more dramatic than at any other age. Your child will progress from almost complete helplessness to walking, talking, thinking and socializing – all in 12 months. During the first year, the foundation for every basic mental process will be laid, including sensory-motor pathways, emotional responses, language and other cognitive abilities.

  • Begins cooing and babbling, especially when being talked or sung to
  • Recognizes own name
  • Explores own body using all senses
  • Vision and hearing improve dramatically
  • Shows interest in simple picture books

  • Holds head up and steady when being held
  • Lifts head and shoulders when lying on stomach and rolls from stomach-to-back followed by back – to-stomach
