  • My daughter is 8 months and will point if she wants food or her bottle but other than that she doesn't. Usually around 11 months to a year they start when they have more of a vocabulary

  • my son will be 13 m/o tomorrow, he doesnt point at all. SO and I point all the time in front of him, so hopefully sometime soon!

  • Babies start pointing at everything that interests them sometime after 12 months and usually before 20 months. In general, it means they are wanting to know the names of things and that a verbal language explosion is in the works.
