For parents of babies 7 to 9 months, what else can be found in their physical growth? Well, not all babies are the same. One can have an earlier development than the others.
For example, your friend's baby was able to crawl when she was 8 months old, while yours was able to crawl when she was seven and a half months old.
On the other hand, the first baby started to come out when he was 6 months old, while yours did when he was 9 months old.
Therefore, you really should not worry about your baby's development. She will hit the stage.
What you need to pay attention to is your baby's developmental milestone. This means that you should be able to do certain things at a certain age.
You should take some notes about your baby's growth, such as writing down all her new skills in an online journal. If you don't want to miss any of your baby's growths, journaling will be very exciting.
Adding cute photos when new things happen will also be a wonderful endeavor. Later, you will thank yourself for keeping the memories online as you can view them anytime, anywhere. Add the joy by sharing the site with friends and family.
Now let's go back to the previous topic. If you're a first-time parent, you probably still have a little idea about your baby's development.
Below is a landmark that you can use as a guide. If your baby is not on your way or does not reach many of the stages mentioned here, you can consult with your baby's pediatrician.
Here are some of the milestones for a 7 to 9 month old baby:
- Sit upright without support
- Pass things from hand to hand
- Stand up holding onto something
- Shaking hands
- Turn her head when someone calls her
- Holding the bottle
- Pick up objects with pincer grip (thumb)
- Test your responses to your behavior
- Able to distinguish between people you know and strangers
- Navigate by holding onto the wall or other furniture
The older your baby is, the more skills she will have. If your baby can't do some of these things, don't worry too much. It does not mean problem. It will soon phase in at the perfect time.
