Your Baby at 6 Months

Boys Town Pediatrics

Milestones is an exciting and important way to track the development of your baby.

Here are some things you might see your baby doing around 6 months of age. 

Your baby can:

  • Roll over in both directions, front to back and back to front
  • Sit without support
  • Support his weight when standing and may even bounce
  • Rock back and forth, even starting to crawl backwards before moving forward
  • Grasp and study small objects

At 6 month of age, your baby's language and communication skills continue to develop.

Your baby can:

  • Respond to sounds by making her own sounds, sometimes making sputtering sounds with her lips and tongue
  • Experiment with different volumes and pitches of sounds while making sounds to show happiness and displeasure
  • Respond to her name

Every child is different. Some of these behaviors and milestones generally occur at certain ages, however, a wide range of growth and behavior for each age is normal.

Remember, if you have any concerns about your child's development, check with your pediatrician.

​Every milestone is important to your child's growth and development. Boys Town Pediatrics provides general guidelines on what to expect when your child reaches 6 months of age.
