The baby at 17 months (1 year and 5 months) is becoming easier to understand because it manages to combine sounds and micelles to become understood.
In addition he has gained more independence and can strip himself, wash his teeth without help and eat alone.
Now you can start trying to make the change from diaper to potty, but if you feel your baby is not ready yet, you can postpone for later.
As the tongue and the muscles of the mouth develop, the ability to pronounce will also improve and you can help by correctly repeating the words you are trying to say.
The child at 1 year and 5 months (17 months) can keep himself busy, ordering his toys according to colors and shapes. The little boy is now beginning to recognize from what points of view the similar objects are and by what traits they differ, transforming this acquisition into a game from which he does not want to distract his attention. This is why it is possible to observe how your puppy becomes very possessive and does not want to share his toys with anyone. Find out what other news brings the age of 1 year and 5 months in the development of the child!
Physical development of the child at 1 year and 5 months
The basic word in the physical development of the child at 17 months is "consolidation", because it can already go well and sit down to pick up an object from below, then to rise without losing its balance (90% of the children can do these things at 1 year and 5 months).
A few weeks ago, the Nazdravan couldn't even walk without your support or a piece of furniture, so his agility is truly a remarkable progress. Therefore, the 17th month of your puppy's life means for him to perfect the new locomotives and to combine the newly acquired skills.
The ascent continues to be a delight for him and he loves to climb stairs (although he still probably needs to keep it up). You will also notice the fascination of the child to climb as high as possible, which is why you have to be eyes and ears when you walk freely through the house. Be careful to put special safeguards on the doors of the cabinets and to remove from the path of the curious the dangerous objects with which they could come in contact!
It is very common for children under the age of 17 to obsessively try to get out of their crib alone. To prevent accidents, lower the mattress to the lowest level, so that the child can not climb on the crib grill (a major temptation for him, once he feels this pleasure climbing on the armchairs, sofa, etc.).
You can help your puppy to hone his body coordination and physical skills, acquainting him with a move he will definitely adore: jumping on the spot. Show him how to do it and keep it handy, with a little exercise, he will be able to jump like a frog and he will be extremely excited about this new performance.
Communication and social development of the child at 1 year and 5 months
In terms of communication, the 17-month-old tries to expand his vocabulary of about 10 words pronounced well, with others that he practices daily through unintelligible sounds, which sounds like the reply adults say. You can hear around here, as a familiar word, which you can hardly relate to the context.
You can help your puppy enrich his language by labeling objects and facts, through remarks such as: "Do you see the beautiful tree has blossomed? The flowers in the tree smell good." When you cook, you can tell him "This is a plate" or ask him "Do you want a big spoon or teaspoon?".
The social development of the 17-month-old child also comes with important news. You can see that the little guy is starting to sound his tastes, what he likes and what doesn't. The child will suggest to you, sometimes very aggressively, what he wants to eat and what clothes he refuses to wear. He may even show disapproval by blows, which does not necessarily mean something wrong: the specialists say that the little one knows he is safe with you and is confident that he will show strong emotions and feelings.
It is also now that he no longer obeys you, defying yourself. The behavior comes with the individualization of his personality, so ignore his little escapes and avoid confrontations with every little thing that annoys you. During this time, your little one becomes more sociable and less intimidated by strangers, so more willing to integrate socially: Mommy and Dad remain the most important for him, but he is more and more interested in interacting with other people.

Baby sleep at 1 year and 5 months
According to KidsHealth.org, most children sleep between 10 and 13 hours at the age of 17 months, according to the natural sleep cycles that your baby has been adjusting to when he was just a 6-month-old baby. A change in his habits related to rest, at 1 year and 5 months, is that the baby can sleep less a day, maybe an hour and a half instead of 3, only once a day.
There is no rule on the sleep program, as each child has his or her own needs for rest. If he begins to refuse the child's night time, out of a clear separation anxiety, make a program of 15 minutes before bed, in which to induce him the peace he needs to sleep easily. Read him a story, talk to him whispered, handle him and give him those elements that induce comfort and a sense of security.
Feeding the child at 1 year and 5 months
At 17 months, the child may become too distracted or too agitated to sit quietly at the table and eat cumintel. He is already beginning to be interested in playing with food and is increasingly selective with the foods he receives.
Give her easy-to-handle products so she can feed herself. Give them small portions and do not let the meals stretch for a longer period of 20 - 30 minutes (take in the face of the consumed food, without making any comment). When refusing a meal, do not take it in front of it to give it what you know it likes (it will take full advantage of your weakness), but make sure you give it at least one favorite food at each meal.
If he has not eaten enough at a meal, do not give him a snack immediately, from your desire to make sure he has eaten enough: waiting for the next meal to come. At 17 months, the child needs less milk than babies, ie 3 servings of 120 ml milk each, along with 3 other servings of milk. In addition, offer the usual quantities of meat, protein, carbohydrates and fiber, in variants as varied and appetizing.
