As your baby has now learnt to sit up and move around, you will notice a more defined sense of assertiveness. Your child is now more attentive of the world around and knows and expresses what she wants when through her yelling, shouting and crying.
What you need to know
Children this age are learning that each object and person is a different entity. They will learn to differentiate between familiar and non-familiar objects. They have also created their own unique likes and dislikes while at the same time devised ways to express that to their parents. Separation anxiety will also offset now because if you are out of sight then it will cause great distress to the child.
