He fell onto a soft, muddy patch of grass, which provided cushioning. Additionally, 18-month olds are built sort of like Rubbermaid, in order to protect them. Their bones are a bit softer, and their skin is thicker. Haven't you ever seen a toddler fall flat on their face, get up, giggle, and run away? I've seen toddlers sustain injuries that would make grown-ups cry in pain.
Hi. My son Daniel is 18 months old, and the second born of twins(non identical boys). Without comparing him to his brother, I have noticed some unusual behaviour. Daniel makes eye contact when it suits him, makes repetitive rocking movements, appears deaf at times, answers to his name when it suits him, just started waving goodbye, stands on tiptoe when standing or walking, has unnaccounted for fits of temper etc. etcl…What is your opinion? We expressed our concerns to a peadiatrician when he had his 12 month check, and he thought he seemed fine, but reccommended a check at 20 months. Am I just being paranoid? Any response would be appreciated. Belinda.

Daniel answers to his name when it suits him, appears deaf at times, makes rocking movements repetitively, stands on tiptoe when standing or walking,appears almost immune to pain, does not like holding or cuddling, makes eye contact when it suits himr…etc.etc. I expressed my concerns to a pediatrician when Daniel had his 12 month check, although he said he seemed fine. To be sure I will see the pead again when Daniel is 20 months old. Should I be concerned or am I paranoid? A response would be appreciated. Belinda.
The best toys for an 18 month old keep them entertained, encourage walking, talking and hand eye co-ordination and ensure they have fun and learn through play.

So, I have compiled a list of the best toys for 18 month old babies based on those that my son loved at this age.
