Correct Answer B) 12 month old baby!

The correct answer is B) 12 month old baby.

By 8 to 12 months of age, an infant develops Separation anxiety.
This is not to be confused with Stranger anxiety which develops from anywhere between 6 to 9 months.

Here are a few important milestones as explained by Sharer-

  • Voluntary grasp (no release) --> 5 mo
  • Voluntary grasp with voluntary release --> 10 mo
  • Plays pat-a-cake --> 9-10 mo
  • Can build tower of 2 cubes --> 13-15 mo
  • Can build tower of 6 cubes --> 2 yr
  • Good use of cup and spoon --> 15-18 mo
  • Understands 1-step commands (no gesture) --> 15 mo
  • Separation anxiety --> 12-15 mo
  • First words --> 9-12 mo
  • Imitates others' sounds --> 9-12 mo
  • Cooing --> 2-4 mo
  • Ties shoelaces --> 5 yr
  • Waves "bye-bye" --> 10 mo
  • Social smile --> 1-2 mo
  • Runs well --> 2 yr
  • Walks without help --> 13 mo
  • Pulls to stand --> 9 mo
  • Stranger anxiety --> 6-9 mo
*Reduce the age of premature infants in the first 2 years for assessing development. For example, for children born after 6 months' gestation, subtract 3 months from their chronologic age. Therefore, they
should be expected to perform only at the 6-month-old level when they are 9 months old.
