On Becoming Pretoddlerwise (12-18 Months)
The period between 12 and 16 months places a child on a one-way bridge to the future. Infancy is a thing of the past and toddlerhood is straight ahead. A baby still? Not really, but neither is he a toddler, and that is the key to understanding this phase of growth. It is a period of great exchange: baby food is exchanged for table food; the highchair for booster seat; finger feeding is replaced with spoon; babbling sounds will transition to speaking; the first unsteady steps are conquered by strides of confidence. On Becoming Pretoddlerwise will help any parent acquire useful knowledge that will prepare them for this next great transition in their child's life.
