From 4 -15 months your baby goes from learning how to sit up to walking around the house on his own. During this exciting time, you can help Baby gain his confidence to take those first steps through simple games and words of praise.
Stage 1: Sitting
When Baby starts sitting on her own, without the help of a Boppy, she is at the first phase of gaining her mobility. Sitting will help your little one strengthen the muscles she will need when she eventually learns to stand.
Age: 4-7 months
What you can do: During playtime
During playtime, roll a ball back and forth or play stacking games to help her enhance her little muscles.
Stage 2: Crawling
The most important thing for Baby to do at the crawling stage is to practice moving his arm and legs at the same time (even if he does a belly crawl or a scoot). He will need these skills when it comes time to walk.
Age: 7-10 months
What you can do: Help him develop these areas by having him crawl from one side of the room to the other. Then praise him for his movement.
Stage 3: Pulling up
Age: 8 months
What you can do: Help Baby pull herself up then show her how to bend her knees to get back down to the floor. This will help ease her falls when she starts taking steps on her own.
