My ds is 4 months and well he can stand holding onto my two fingers...its how he likes to be...he can stand for 20 minutes without a wabble and two days ago he took two steps....what do i do?

Get him a walker or jumperoo or something! Wow. Although I wouldn’t' expect him to do it all the time, but he very well could!

im worried because he cant sit up yet...a__sisted yes buthe isnt very good at it...lol...he loves his highchair is it a problem b/c he cant sit up but can take steps...

No worry he will catch up in seating crawling . Just go with the flow.

oh wow! my dd didn't start standing until she was almost 6 months. She could sit before that though, but still no crawling. I'm sure your lo will get to all the milestones. I don't think they have a proper order of appearance.

4 months??? Unbelievable! It looks like he will be an early walker.


LisaB - February 13

Is he standing alone?


Lisastar9 - February 13

sitting not seating*

My friends baby walked at an unbelievable 6months!! and I always thought 9 months was early!


BriannasMummy - February 13

Id say.. get an exercauser.. get those little legs strong!! Sounds like he'll be an early walker. ~Kristin~

he can stand holding onto my two firngers for balance but he is holding himself up...he doesnt wabble much...but just in case im to scared to let go...i think he is o young to be doing this anyways

Not to kill your buzz but my pediatrician said that letting your lo "stand" at this age can be damaging to their joints...I asked because my dd also enjoys "standing" with a little help. I would talk to your doctor about it and get the okay before you continue to let your lo stand...but that's just my opinion!


hello - February 13

i tend to agree with mommy to be and definitely no to a walker at any age but thats just how i feel about them.... Its cool though cause my daughter didnt move for ages, too lazy hah

My cousin walked at 6 months also. He had a jumper and was always in that thing jumping around, but he was technically never a baby, walking so early. I hope my lo doesn't go that fast. I want to keep him a baby for as long as I can. I've heard that also, about the standing too early, it can cause pigeon toes, or bull-leggedness. Not sure how true that is, but that's what I've heard.

ive also heard that it can be damaging to there joints.....not too be a bad influence or anything lol, but my ds did that at 3 1/2 months and we encouraged it to some extent. he is now almost 7 months old, and at 6 months, he started crawling everywhere. 3 weeks later he is now pulling himself up onto everything. he walks quite well, but still only with a__sistance. i agree not to get a walker. ds never had a jumper excersauser or walker to get to where he is. its all strength. the best thing to do is let him be on his belly on the floor for as long as he can. thats what i did/do with ds, and through that he has also learnt to self entertain for long periods of time.

Well, its a fight for him to sit and a fight for tummy time...the only thing he enjoys is standing and i mean he wont bend for us to sit him up...we have a bumbo and that doesnt help...he loved it for like the first few days and now HATES it...he hates to sit...and as for bowlegged and all that stuff its all myth...my cousin wasnt aloud to stand and stuff like trent is and she is bowlegged...standing has nothing to do with it...according to his dr...if he wants to stand the more power to him...let him do what he enjoys b/c his dr saw the tantrums we get form sitting and tummy time...hell be on his tummy longer than sitting...he can get up to crawling postion actually did it yesterday so im not worried about that...but after about 5 minutes he screams till hes blue in the face and he actually cries so much he makes himself sick and is conpletely unconsoalble when i pick him up...he will lay on his back and play only if i am right there with him...the only other option to keep him content is his swing..


Deirdra - February 14

and also i was told my my pediatrician to get something like a jumperoo
