8 Month Old

He's on the track!

8 month old, first week
Many babies are pulling themselves up now, grabbing on to any available piece of furniture and then standing while holding onto it in a wobbly way. Some babies walk as early as eight months, others not until well into their second year. All are still well within the normal range. Most babies work out how to stand up fairly easily on their own. The thing that stumps many of them is sitting back down again! When your little one pulls himself to a stand and then cries for you to sit him back down, don't rush to pick him up. Instead, show him how to bend his knees so his journey back down doesn't end with such a thud.
