The development milestones between 12 to 24 months you should know


During the second year, toddlers are more vigorous crawling, walking and moving around.1 Usually the child’s brain develops rapidly between 12 to 24 months, which bring in remarkable changes such as talking, remembering and walking.2 The child is now aware of itself and its surroundings. It also has an increased desire to explore new objects and people.3
