Toddler Milestone

Happy mother and child

Being a parent of a two-year old requires patience, guidance from family and friends, and a good sense of humour. Here are a few milestones from age 18 to 24 months.

At 18 months, your little one who is up on his/her feet may demonstrate the following:

  • Start to run but not well coordinated yet
  • Walking up the stairs with assistance (holding to the railing/parent’s hand)
  • Removing some parts of clothing such as socks,/hairband
  • Listens to story telling
  • Decrease in appetite as he/she is easily distracted

By 24 months, your toddler will be:

  • Walking without assistance
  • Running steadily
  • Has a vocabulary of 50 to 300 words (varies from child to child)
  • Start to form sentence consisting of 2 to 4 words
  • Doddle with crayons or colour pencils
  • Able to feed himself/herself

With all these development in your child’s milestone, having the right nutrition is important to support his/her mental & physical growth.
