See below: Most one year old children are crawling, pulling to stand, cruising, saying mama and dada, doing imitative behavior, and starting to become independent. They will enjoy peek-a-boo, pat-a-cake, etc. They are also normally waving. However, there is a lot of variability in development. And the whole child's picture needs to be taken into account. Any concerns should be discussed.

You are correct: Older siblings can bring home germs which will affect your one year old and the older kids may have antibody to the virus and not be sick. Make sure your one year old is eating properly and sleeping properly. Routine infections as long as they are not serious, will strengthen your one year old's immune system. Discuss further with your pediatrician,
