Cupid’s Advice:

Expecting a child is an exciting time! Your family is growing and there’s a lot to prepare for. It’s important to know that a baby’s brain develops differently for each sex. If you want a sneak peek into your little girl talents and struggles, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Talking: On average, girls start talking a month earlier than boys. Girls also tend to have larger vocabularies than boys as early as 18 and 24 months. However, reading to your child has more of an impact on their vocabulary than biological sex does, so be sure to talk and read to your baby as much as you can!

2. Spatial skills: Boys tend to better understand the space objects take up. Boys can usually understand how objects appear rotated between three to five months old, which is earlier than girls. Make sure to play with your daughter in ways that help her with this: build with building blocks, teach her to count, throw a ball around with her.

3. Potty training: Girls have the upper hand when it comes to potty training. They start toilet training between 22 and 30 months, which is three months to a year earlier than boys. Girls pee on their own approximately four months earlier than boys. Girls also are able to sit still to poop around three-and-a-quarter-years-old, which is five months earlier than boys.
