Your baby's developmental milestones at 6 months – UNICEF

At 6 months, your baby will start using sounds to express emotion. She/he may mimic sounds she/he hears, like “ma,” “da,” “ah,” “oh” and even “no!” Your little one will begin to recognize familiar faces, reach and grasp for toys and will soon be crawling — start preparing your home (and yourself) for a mobile child!
Get ready by removing any sharp, breakable or electric objects from the child’s reach, locking closets with dangerous liquids or supplies (or putting them in a safe place far out of your child’s reach), and closing windows to ensure your child’s safety.
