Now that your baby is almost 2 years old, he would be showing interest in trying to put on simple clothing himself, like his t-shirts, socks and pajamas. Dressing up himself is an important skill that he will learn but is also a very difficult skill to master as it requires a lot of gross and fine motor development.
What you need to know
Before dressing himself, your child will learn to undress as it is much easier to master. Avoid making fun of your child when he wears a shirt backwards or the pajamas inside out. Doing up the buttons, zips and hooks will come much later. Encourage him all the time as this will motivate him to keep trying.
