I have four kids and my you youngest is 14 months. When he was born he was so placid and I would always get told what a ‘good’ baby he is, until now. He is soooooo very cheeky and Gid forbid he doesn’t get his way. He crawls right up to his older siblings who are 6,4,3 and absolutely adore him and he hits them ( softly for now) and crawls away. It’s very cute to watch but I’ve made sure he knows it’s not good svd we say a stern No to deter the behaviour. I mentioned this to maternal child health nurse and although I wasn’t concerned I just wanted to make sure and she assured me its age appropriate and his just making sure his not forgotten. We love him all the same.

  • It’s probably quite frustrating for him that he’s still crawling and can’t be like his siblings!


  • You may find as he gets stronger that he starts to hurt the other children.
    Best to discourage rather than have that happen. If he goes to daycare or kindy they will have to stop him from hurting other children. They have a duty of care.
    I know a little one that suddenly started biting. His Mum had to stop him. He was leaving red marks on his little friend’s arms and hands. Kicking is another stunt that some try out too. That definitely hurts. Time out corner for that after a few warnings.


  • hes a boy! yeah it will only get worst lol good luck


  • Glad there are no concerns from your health nurse


  • A youngest child can sometimes be very pushy in looking for attention.


  • So Naughty but so cute and cheeky at the same time.. Sounds like his personality is starting to come out.. The youngest kids get away with so much more than the older ones.. But then they always seem to make the family so complete…
