Clap their hands?
Point to their body parts?
Point to something they want?

I thought I read somewhere that Savannah should be doing these 3 things & she is not. I work with her everyday with her body parts & clapping her hands, but I feel like I'm getting nowhere. She's super intelligent, but not doing these things...Is every baby here doing them?

With her background, I always worry she may fall behind.

Clap their hands? Yes, he started this way earlier than my other babies for some reason

Point to their body parts? Nope, not yet

Point to something they want? Sometimes, he's just starting this

Kaylee does all three, and has for a whle. The newest of the three things is pointing to what she wants. She used to just whine and you had to figure it out, now she will point to her juice if she is in her seat for dinner and wants a drink. She will point to things that are left out that she isn't allowed to have, as if to say, "Look what you left out!"

Last night we were trying to get her to say Dada for Kyle, and Mama for me, so Kyle was touching his own chest saying "Dada" then her chest for "Kaylee" and me for "Mum-mum." After he did it twice she started pointing to him so we would say Dada, then to her so we would say Kaylee, and then to me for mum-mum. She did it over and over and over until we put her to bed lol She totally gets that she can point and get stuff done

Yes, for 5-6 months. Did her pedi mention it at her 12 month visit?

Clap their hands? Yes, for quite a while now
Point to their body parts? Yes but she only really knows nose, ear, belly, toes without having to be showing
Point to something they want? Yes. Some days it drives me crazy because she drags me to what she wants and points and jabbers until I figure it out. I get through 3-4 things before she gets mad and screaming starts......

Im with Rae, did the ped bring it up?

No, he didn't mention it...He said she's right on track with everything because she uses her hands in every other way she's supposed to, except those 3 things...Idk, maybe she's just a late bloomer? She just turned 13 months a couple days ago, so If she's not doing them by her 15 month appt, I will make sure her pedi acknowledges it.

He claps and points to what he wants but not to body parts. With my older 2 the ped didn't ask about body parts until their 18 month appointment. I wouldn't worry.

Clap? Yes
Body parts? No
Point? Yes

My older son didn't point until after he turned 2. And he is in no way behind. So I say ask at her 15 month appointment and otherwise try not to worry. (Easier said than done, I know!)

Clap their hands? Yes, he started that several months ago.
Point to their body parts? No, but that's probably my fault because I just recently started this with him. I started with "tummy" and it took him about a month to figure it out with daily practice. That happened just a couple days ago. Now that he knows what a tummy is, I'm going to try "head" and see if he grasps that.
Point to something they want? He points, but not to specific things he wants. He just points randomly.

Clap their hands? He can, but doesn't often.

I wouldn't worry about it. Kaitlyn was super into waving but never clapping or pointing until way later and she is ahead if anything. Dominic is into pointing but not clapping and I'm not worried at all. They all just kind of do their thing.

Thanks ladies...I'm just working really hard with her...I know she understands, she just won't do it...Her vocabulary & verbal understanding is pretty good, so hopefully it's nothing serious...Just time.

When I would ask Brynlee where her belly button was, I'd tickle it after I pointed to it. Then I'd kiss it or something to make her laugh. Now we ask where her belly button is and she points and smiles really big. I still tickle or kiss it. If she is wearing a onesie..which isn't often..she will slap her belly and try to pull her shirt off when I ask where her belly button is.

So I did the same thing with her nose, toes, and eye. I don't tickle her eye, lol, but I kiss it after we point to it. And I also ask her where Mommy's nose, toes, eye is. We are struggling with ear, LOL.

With her hair, I would just give her the hairbrush and tell her to brush her hair. So she tries to put the brush and bows in her hair. And I'll say, Brush mommy's hair and she will brush my hair.

I think if you just do lots of repetition and make it fun, they seem to learn it "faster". At daycare, they tell us on her daily report which letter or number they are working on. So we "work" on that number/letter in the shower with her bath letters and numbers.

So when I say "one", she holds up her one finger or picks up the number one. That's the only one she has down so far. She doesn't know or recognize any letters yet.

Tristan claps his hands and sometimes points to things he wants. It's a hit or miss. I'm really not worried just because babies develop different skills at different times. Savannah can walk really well and Tristan is just starting to get around so I think it has to do with her focusing more on other skills than those three. Don't worry! She seems to be doing wonderfully!

Thanks girls!
If she was doing nothing, I think I would worry a lot more but yes, she excels in other areas but now I know we need to focus on these more.

Don't worry mama! I am sure she is just fine. She is also among the youngest in this playroom.
