How to play with a baby at 11 months?
At 11 months, the child is able to find objects, so he likes it very much if he forgives him to choose between a lot of toys and give him a specific toy. Make sure you praise him, because he tries hard.

The child already knows how to play simple plot games, help him with this, feed the dolls, put them to sleep.
Consider the books with bright pictures with the child, give him the opportunity to turn the pages.
The child at this age is very active, so he likes to play noisy and active games. Particularly enthusiastic scream rocking, pulling, spinning, going down face down.
These games are especially good for dads, as they physically and reliably secure the baby.
What toys are suitable for this age?
Closer to the year, children increasingly like to play not with toys, but with adult objects. Do not repress your interest, because the baby can be given a tray, an old watch or a telephone.
Let him mess with them, exploring.
The toys themselves quickly bore the baby, so try to change them, but do not offer too many toys at the same time. This can quickly tire a child.
At this age, the baby is very active, it is not necessary to hold him back, try to talk to him more, count and show. Play with him and, through the game, he teaches independence, sociability, teaches to work.
