Some Important Milestones at a Glance


A baby decides when she is ready to sit up. If you prop her up in a sitting position before she is ready, she will probably slump down or slide to one side. You should also not attempt to prop her up at an age when her head and neck still need to be supported. By the time the baby is three to four months old, she should be ready to sit up.


Crawling is not a necessary part of a child's development schedule. Some babies progress directly from standing to moving around the room supporting themselves against various objects. Some babies start crawling by six months, but 7 ½ to 9 months is more typical.


By the time she is six months old, your baby will probably be able to bear some weight on her legs when held upright. She may even be able to stand holding on to someone or something. She may even be able to pull herself up to a standing position from sitting.


By the tenth month your baby should be able to walk well. By the time she is nine months old, your baby may be eager to walk holding on to the hand of an adult. There is no substance to the fear that early walking or early standing will cause bow-leggedness.
