baby recipes for 10 to 12 month babies. Time will fly by and before you even realize it, you will be getting set to celebrate your baby's first birthday. By now, in addition to breast milk, 4 to 5 supplementary feeds per day are necessary for your growing baby.

There are no hard and fast rules about when your baby should progress from one stage to the next. However usually most babies adjust to semi-solid and solid supplements with real gusto, by the tenth month. They may have already graduated to eating porridge, mashed fruits and vegetables, unstrained soups, khichdi and will be ready to try something adventurous. Grab this opportunity! This is the right time to add more combinations and textures of food to your baby's diet. Moreover, as they approach their first birthday, they begin to show interest in eating all those foods that other family members around them are eating and they are willing to experiment with them.

This is the best time to gradually accustom your baby to eat with the family and also to eat the same meals as the family does. Try and enjoy at least one family meal everyday with your baby.

These meal times are also a good way for her to learn to feed herself and also encourages her to be independent. She will learn to eat quicker and be more motivated to be self-sufficient by watching others at the table. Give her a clean baby spoon to eat on her own and serve food cut into tiny ‘bite-sized’ pieces so she can handle it easily. You can fill the spoon for your baby, but leave the actual feeding to her. Even if it is slightly messy in the beginning, she will soon learn her table manners.

Like most adults, babies also eat with their eyes first, so their meals should look appealing. Make her meals more appealing by making foods into different shapes and sizes so that the food looks fascinating, adding different coloured fruits and veggies to make it appealing. You can also serve the food in colourful plates and bowls thus making meal times into happy times for you and your little one.

1. Liquid Food for 10 to 12 months Babies

Bulgur Wheat and Paneer Pulao

Dairy Products: Continue adding fresh curds and paneer to your baby's diet at 10 months. Serve curds with parathas. Paneer can be added to roti and rice delicacies like Bulgur Wheat and Paneer Pulao.

Fruit and Vegetable Juices and Soups: You can continue to serve one unstrained vegetable soup and/ or fruit juice as appetizers before meals or in the evenings. Fruit juices are great sources of a natural sugar called fructose that provides instant energy to keep your baby perked up. This will also take care of your baby's hunger until meal times. Most paediatricians are against giving juices and soups during meal times, as they can affect your baby's appetite and she may not be so willing to eat her meal after that. Again, do remember that there are no hard and fast rules and if your baby is happier with a 'soupy' dinner, just go ahead with it.

2. Semi-Solid and Solid Food for Babies
Cabbage Moong Dal Khichdi

This is a period of transition and exploration for your baby; especially where her diet is concerned. She is most likely to be ready for a switch from mashed and semi-puréed foods to finely-chopped and lumpy foods. However, some babies are reluctant to accept this transition and may just be really happy gulping mashed foods. Include a variety of chopped vegetables like carrot, potatoes, spinach etc. to your baby's meal. Your little one is going to be extremely attracted to colourful and 'feel-good' dishes so do pay attention to the colour and texture of her meals. Colourful dishes like Jowar and Bajra Vegetable Roti and Cabbage Moong Dal Khichdi and Spring Vegetable Risotto will be accepted easily by your baby at this stage.

3. Helping the teething process

As your baby grows older and continues teething, encourage her to have whole fruits and vegetables like banana, chickoo, apples and cucumber, which are soothing for the gums. Chewing food is also great exercise for your baby’s gums when she is teething and helps to strengthen the new teeth that are emerging. Peel and cut the foods into bite-sized pieces. Fruits and vegetables provide bulk in the diet and aid in the baby's bowel movements too. But always keep a watch, to avoid choking.

4. Getting used to home food

The good news for you is that you may no longer need to prepare special meals for your baby. By the end of the first year, your baby can start eating everything from your family pot. Just keep her portion aside before adding spices and seasoning to the food for the other family members. In fact, a wonderful way to acquaint your baby with your 'ghar ka khana' is to mix a spoon or two of your regular food to the portions you have kept aside for her. This will gradually help your little one to adjust her palate to these new and wonderful tastes of your home cooking.

5. Fermented foods,  Babies Recipes for 10 to 12 months
Vegetable Idlis

At this age, you can also introduce fermented foods to your baby's diet, as these are nourishing and easy for your baby to digest. Curd is an example of fermented food that is commonly eaten on a daily basis. However, curd is introduced to your baby at eight months itself because it is easier to digest. Idlis, dosas, dhoklas, etc. made with a combination of cereals and pulses are also good examples of fermented foods, which can be added to your baby's diet from the tenth month onwards. Vegetable Idlis is a fermented dish which your baby will definitely relish!

6. Tougher foods for Babies

Some foods like whole nuts, raw peas, corn, etc. should be avoided till your baby is a year old as they can cause choking. For that reason, they’re not safe for your baby to eat at this stage in their whole form. However, as they are nutritious, you can mash or purée them before giving them to your baby. Corn Sambhar is an example of such a food.

You can start adding restricted amount of salt to your baby's diet at this stage as they are getting used to regular home-cooked food. However, some paediatricians recommend avoiding it till your baby turns one. So it is advisable to consult your paediatrician before adding salt to your baby's meals.

Daily routine of a child at 11 months: daily routine, nutrition, development

Now the baby sleeps 2 times a day for a total of 2-2.5 hours. To properly form a regimen, organize the morning rise of an 11-month-old baby at the same time - best of all no later than 7-7.30 in the morning. And daytime sleep should be done in melatonin "windows of sleep" - in intervals of 9.00-10.00 and 12.00-14.00. You will determine the exact time for bedtime, focusing on the condition of the child and the quality of his previous sleep.

Baby 11 months still needs to go to bed early at night, since his body is not yet physically ready for a long wakefulness, the child quickly gets tired. Exact nighttime care depends on the time of the end of the second daytime sleep. You should also focus on the time of wakefulness - it is no more than 4.5 hours before a night's sleep.

Night rest becomes longer and lasts approximately 11-12 hours. nine0003

At this age, most children can already sleep through the night without waking up.

With such a physiological daily routine, the baby will get enough sleep recommended for his age and feel good.

Difficulties in the routine:

1. At this age, the child may begin to give up one of his daytime naps. This phenomenon is called a "false transition" to one dream.

Of course, everyone is individual, but most children are now physically not ready for such changes in the regime, which can affect their well-being and health. nine0003

What to do?⠀

During this period, continue to offer the child two sleeps. If you begin to notice that morning sleep “interferes” with lunchtime, then limit the first interval to an hour so that by lunchtime the baby is ready to fall asleep again. This dream no longer needs to be limited. Within a few days, the regime will improve.⠀

2. Is the baby actively learning to rise from a sitting position, stand at a support and walk? This may also affect his sleep. If the child began to get up in the crib, in response to these actions, it is important to show him how to sit down and lie down from this position. Don't come too often, otherwise the child will take it as a game. Active training of new skills during wakefulness, following the regimen and rituals will allow you to return to good sleep in a week or two. nine0003

3. The child grows up and the usual ways of laying down stop working. You may notice that the baby no longer falls asleep with motion sickness, in the stroller or during feeding. The child is not yet aware, but intuitively wants to fall asleep without outside help - to relax in a convenient way OWN and sleep as he likes. Wants, but can't.

In this case, learning how to fall asleep on your own will help.

Here you will find general sleep and wake guidelines for your 11 month old

Child's diet

Until one year of age, breast milk or infant formula is the child's main food source. But at the same time, the complementary foods menu by this time is already expanding significantly. The child begins to eat more and more from the common table, and the dishes become more varied.

At this age, the baby eats 5 times a day. The interval between feedings is usually up to 4 hours. The child receives food according to a clear schedule, which allows you to harmoniously combine the load and rest of the digestive and excretory systems of the child's body. nine0003

Feeding breast milk or formula occurs on waking and at bedtime. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea already consist of adult food.

The child's menu includes multi-component purees and food cut into pieces. 11 months is the right age for babies to learn how to use a spoon and drink from a cup or cup.

Baby refuses to eat? Diversify the diet with new products, rotate dishes and offer the same product several times. At the same time, do not force the baby to eat. nine0003

At 11 months, most babies no longer need night feeds. If your child is still waking up to food, this could be due to the following reasons:

  • The diet is unbalanced and the baby is undernourished during the day.
  • The child lacks communication with you and he makes up for it at night, demanding a breast / bottle
  • The child does not know how to fall asleep on his own and feeding is the only way for him to relax and fall asleep
  • nine0067

    Pay attention to these points and correct the situation, if necessary, seek the help of a specialist.

    Baby's development

    By the end of the first year of life, you will notice how your child:

    1. Actively enters into a dialogue with you, recognizes human speech and pronounces individual words independently.

    2. The baby already distinguishes between different intonations and responds to your requests and comments. He knows how to "hello" or wave "bye". nine0003

    In order for the baby's speech to develop faster, give him the opportunity to ask for something or tell him something. Read books together during waking hours, talk about surrounding objects during a walk.

    3. The child begins to control his body better. At 11 months, he is already able to quickly move along the support, sit down and lie down. Many children begin to walk by the hand.

    Also, the baby can follow the simplest instructions: bring a thing, put toys in a box. nine0003

    Remove small and dangerous objects from the floor so that the child can safely explore the environment.

    And one last little tip: set aside a special time during the day when you just play with your child - this will help to establish contact and give the child the confidence that you love him.

    Physical development of the child

    In this month of life, the baby gains an average of 400-500 grams in weight and grows by 1-1.5 cm. The circumference of the head and chest increases by half a centimeter.

    Differences between boys and girls

    Indicators of normal weight and height of a child at 11 months depending on gender:

    Indicator Boys at 11 months Girls at 11 months 11 month average
    Weight kg 8.5-11.5 7.9-11.2 8.3-10.8

    Chest circumference, cm 47.5-51.6 46. 7-50.5 47.8-48.5

    Physical abilities


    The child's strengthened muscular system allows him to hold his body upright for a long time - that is, the baby is able to stand and move independently, without support . Many children of this age can walk a short distance by holding on to furniture or leaning on walls, and also actively use wheelchairs for walking. Some babies can take several steps without the support of an adult. But from a standing position, the baby still sits down with difficulty. nine0003

    Already sufficiently developed muscles allow the child to crawl quickly. An 11-month-old baby sits absolutely confidently without support. The movements are well coordinated: the child easily takes small objects, and, wanting to grab something, opens his hand according to the size of the object. If the baby is interested in something, he will point to it with his finger.

    What should a child be able to do at 11 months?

    The activity of an eleven-month-old baby noticeably increases, and amazing changes take place in his intellectual and psychological development: the baby grows up literally by leaps and bounds. nine0003

    What can an eleven-month-old child do?


    The eleven-month-old baby moves a lot and actively, and the main of his new achievements can be considered the ability to sit without support for a long time, stand without the help of a parent and take his first steps without support. Also, by 11 months, the baby has learned to:

    • bend down and squat, trying to get an object off the floor;
    • to walk, hold on not to two mother's hands, but only to one; nine0062
    • at his mother's request to point to familiar objects;
    • confidently get off the sofa and climb on it;
    • do small errands for parents, for example, wave goodbye to a friend or find a toy that is hidden under a pillow;
    • unzip the jacket;
    • if the baby needs something, he will not just be capricious, but quite clearly indicate with his finger the subject of his interest;
    • to distinguish between the parents' emotions towards him: the baby rejoices at praise and gets upset when he hears a strict tone. nine0062

    Movement, reflexes, motor skills


    An 11-month-old baby is a fidget and an explorer who is extremely difficult to keep still. But it is important not only to support him in active games, but also to stimulate fine motor skills by choosing appropriate activities and puzzles for this. The development of a child at 11 months suggests that he has already learned:

    • stack blocks in a turret;
    • nine0061 assemble and disassemble the pyramid;
    • open boxes;
    • pick up small objects with index and thumb;
    • play sorters;
    • cost simple figures from toys;
    • leaf through a cardboard picture book;
    • hold a cup with handles and drink from it;
    • hold a spoon in your hand, scoop up food with it.

    Intellectual and mental development


    At the age of eleven months, the main character traits of the child can already be seen. Ingenuity develops, the baby is able to find ways to achieve goals on his own: he can use some object to scrape toys off the table or, wanting to get the right toy, turn the whole box over. It will perform the same action until it gets the desired result. nine0003

    A characteristic feature that manifests itself in this period is the child's ability to concretize and generalize information. For example, if a parent asks him to bring a cube, the baby will take any of those nearby. But if you specify what color cube you need to bring, the baby will correctly choose the designated item. Sometimes he thinks, following his own logic, which is not clear to his parents. During the game, the child tries to make his mother laugh, get her approval and praise.

    Advice: 11 months is the right age to learn do's and don'ts. Consistently accustom your child to the rules that are accepted in your family. nine0003

    Psychological component, emotions and mood

    Prostock-studio/Shutterstock. com

    At the age of 11 months there are visible changes in the development of the personality of little people. He is more confident in himself, because he is already able to cope with many things without the help of adults. Not getting what they want, the baby can still be capricious, but it is already much easier to distract him - if the mother starts telling the child something interesting, sings a funny song or shows funny movements, circles the baby or looks out the window with him, he will quickly forget about grief . nine0003

    A child at this age becomes a real music lover: he has his favorite songs, to the beat of which he begins to dance. The baby loves musical toys.

    Now he does not require attention around the clock, but he can take some time on his own, freeing his mother's hands. Although the attachment to the baby's mother is still great: he loves to spend a lot of time with her, play toys, listen to fairy tales, look at pictures together.

    The kid becomes more sociable, more actively interested in peers and older children, enjoys watching their games, trying to imitate actions and behavior. nine0003

    Pediatricians advise at this age to teach the baby to sleep in his own bed if before that he slept in the parent's bed. At first, you can hum a lullaby or rock the baby in your arms, and after waiting for him to fall asleep, try to leave him alone in the room.

    Sense organs. Perception of the surrounding world


    For its development, the baby actively uses all the senses, exploring the environment around him “by touch”. During this period, sensorics becomes his main tool for studying the world. nine0003

    Children love to open cupboards, pull out drawers and throw away their contents, and then carefully examine the discovered things. Do not interfere with the child in this, it is better to take all measures for his safety and do not leave the baby unattended at such moments .

    In an effort to wean the baby from playing with forbidden things, parents often buy expensive intricate toys, but you can do without it. Household items for which babies up to a year have a special "weakness" are perfect:

    • utensils - spoons, cups, plastic containers, small saucepans;
    • cardboard rolls;
    • empty plastic bottles;
    • egg cartons.

    Speech, communication with people, social skills


    The development of the speech apparatus continues at an active pace: the speech of an 11-month-old child is more varied and filled with emotions. Now in his "lexicon" even words of two syllables can slip through. Kids can say the words: “mom”, “dad”, “woman”, “yes-yes”, “give”, “on”. Answering the question, the baby nods or turns his head. For the most part, the words are still slurred, but are understandable by parents. The child understands the speech of relatives and adequately responds to it, fulfilling the simplest requests. nine0003

    In addition to speech, the baby learns onomatopoeia, for example, he can copy the barking of a dog or the mewing of a cat if he has heard these sounds and knows them well.

    Hearing his name, the baby responds to it. He already understands the difference between approval and censure, and if the child starts to scold, he gets upset and cries.

    Every parent wants their little one to say their first words as soon as possible, but not all babies are talkative. To “wake up” your child’s speech skills, try these tricks:

    • while pronouncing the words, look the baby in the face and clearly articulate each sound;
    • do not lisp with the baby and do not shorten words;
    • show the baby the same objects in pictures and in real life, talk about the purpose of everyday things;
    • comment and talk about all your actions at home and on a walk;
    • read books with fairy tales and stories to your child, say nursery rhymes and nursery rhymes more often;
    • if the baby persistently asks for something, do not "understand" him immediately. nine0062



    At the age of 11 months, the baby has already erupted from 1 to 4 teeth. The classic option is when the two lower incisors cut through first, but it happens that the upper teeth are ahead of them.

    If the baby already has four teeth, then they are placed on both jaws - one above the other. But do not panic if there are no teeth at all - this is not a deviation and does not require any special nutrition correction: much here is determined by the genetic factor. nine0003

    Games, playing skills


    At the age of 11 months, the child's games become more difficult, the plot becomes more pronounced in them: the baby rolls the car, rocks the doll, feeds the teddy bear. Role-playing games are becoming the main tool for interacting with people and peers, learning the rules of behavior in society. At this stage, the differences between boys and girls are especially noticeable.

    Girls Boys
    They really like strollers, dolls and soft toys, on which they try to put on hats, dresses and vests Likes noisy games, more energetic and inquisitive
    They enjoy rocking dolls, pushing a stroller, “sculpting” beads in the sandbox Prefer balls, wheelchairs, cars
    Can try on mom's shoes and use cosmetics at a level that they can afford They love musical toys, they listen to their favorite tunes many times and press the keys

    1. It is important for parents to stimulate the child's walking and crawling by all means, using strollers and wheelchair toys for this.
    2. Don't miss the opportunity to learn to walk up the stairs with your baby.
    3. Due attention should be paid to the development of fine motor skills of the crumbs: let the little one pour the cereal from one cup to another, pick it up with his fingers and a spoon. nine0062
    4. While bathing, you can offer your baby a sieve or a bowl. Let the floating toys keep him company in the bathroom.
    5. Drawing and modeling are already familiar to the baby at this age, open felt-tip pens and special dough or soft plasticine for him.
    6. Playing with other children on the playground should be an integral part of the walk.

    Sleep, nutrition and daily routine


    An eleven-month-old baby's daily need for sleep is 14-15 hours: about 10 hours lasts a night's sleep, and the rest of the time falls on two daytime naps. Usually parents try to organize two walks a day, during which the baby falls asleep after actively spending time outside. The first walk is usually arranged by 11 o'clock in the morning, the second - after 16.00. nine0003

    At 11 months, the baby still eats five meals a day, with no more than 3-4 hour intervals between meals. It is important to try to feed the baby at the same time: this disciplines and contributes to the good mood of the crumbs.

    The amount of food recommended by WHO for this age is 1000-1200 ml. It is important to evenly distribute food according to the number of feedings: the optimal portion is 200-240 ml of food. However, at 11 months, the body weight of children can vary markedly, therefore, to calculate the required daily amount of food, divide the weight of the little one by 9.

    Experts from the Union of Pediatricians of Russia note that the menu of an 11-month-old baby should include the following products:

    • formula or breast milk;
    • milk porridges;
    • vegetable purees;
    • fruit juices and purees;
    • cottage cheese;
    • natural fermented milk products;
    • oil - vegetable and butter;
    • boiled meat, fish twice a week; nine0062
    • white bread;
    • cookies and crackers.

    There are also changes in the consistency of food: for 11-month-old babies who have already erupted teeth, pediatricians do not recommend mashing it. Boiled vegetables can be chopped by crushing them with a fork, and it is better to grate fruits. Soft fish fillet can be given in pieces, and meat in thin fibers.

    Caring for an 11 month old baby


    Parental care for an 11 month old baby should include:

    • daily morning washing, combing, brushing teeth;
    • potty training after a night's sleep;
    • obligatory washing of the child after the toilet;
    • nail trimming and ear cleaning as needed;
