On completion of 29 months, your toddler is independent individual showing sensitive feelings. It is the time to help in the development of your toddler by learning about the milestones.
It has just been 5 months that you had celebrated her 2nd birthday and she appears such a grown up now. While she may think she is an independent individual now, for you she is still the baby you bought home from the hospital.
She will now ensure you do not feel lonely any time. She will now be able to speak clearly and shall speak a lot new words. She shall be able to frame sentences and keep chattering all day long. She has now learnt her talking etiquette and shall be waiting for her turn to talk.
You may find significant changes in her appearance now. Her brain is now absorbing all the interactions happening around her like a sponge. So, you should be very careful about the way you behave or talk now. She is after all following you very closely every single moment.
Here we shall look closer into the other growth and development that you can expect this month:
29-Month-Old Toddlerâ€™s Growth and Development
As your toddler speaks even more clearly than before, you may find her a lot more matured. Patience is something she is yet to develop. It will be difficult for her to wait even if you ask her to. Make sure to keep her engaged, so that she does not frame another mischievous adventure in her head.
She will now be able to name most of the objects she is familiar with. It will be amusing to find her copying you doing all the household chores. She will also love wearing your shoes and walk around the house. Keep the cupboards locked, so that she does not keep swinging the doors all the time. She shall be engaged in playful activities and shall fantasise about different things now.
Interactive Games and Play for Toddlers
Even at this age, you will find her more interested in playing all by her. However, she shall not wait for your inspiration and start playing on her own. You will also find her planning a game and following the different stages. She shall be able to recognise if a puzzle is missing from the board.
Make sure to praise her drawings and crafts. Your toddler has developed very sensitive feelings and thus might feel hurt upon being neglected.
She may ask you to watch her plan for a game now. Make sure you are paying attention to what she says. Showering her with attention is highly essential to ensure her emotional stability.
Eating Patterns of a 29-Month-Old Toddler
You may be still breastfeeding your toddler. Whether you want to stop it or not, the decision is entirely yours. However, if you decide to continue, it shall be a wonderful way you are connecting with your little one. The best thing that you can do is, reduce the number of feeds. She is anyways relying on the solids as her main source of nutrition and thus it is better to reduce the milk intake.
If you are still breast feeding, you must surely look into the kind of foods you are taking as well. Make sure you are taking a nutritious diet. Your protein, calcium and carbohydrates intake must be high.
In case she is not very keen on chewing, you must offer her foods in different textures and consistencies. With time she shall learn to take different kinds of foods. Make sure to stay calm and not react easily if she is rejecting her food.
It shall be difficult keeping her under control, but you will certainly love to see her grow and attain different milestones every day. So good luck mommies!
