  • A 9 month old will most likely if left to do at his own device been still predominantly nursing..and may have a little bit of food. Most children if allowed will feed predominantly breastmilk well into their second year.

  • Definitely sitting up, probably crawling, and pulling up on things, maybe clapping or waving. As far as what to eat: breastmilk or formula, stage 2 or 3 foods, and some may be eating soft table food already too.

  • go on and register. it gives you week by week milestones and tells you what your child should be doing.

  • Well it really varies from baby to baby, as well as from all the different parenting styles. My nine month old nurses on demand, and has about two tablespoons of fruit for breakfast, and about 3-4 tablespoons of veggies for dinner. Sometimes she has water in a sippy cup, and sometimes I give her little finger foods like cheerios. I usually only do those two things when I really need to get something done and for her to be kept busy.

    As far as her development, she crawls, pulls up and cruises, babbles, says "dog" and "all-done". She also says "dog" and "more" in sign language.
