Both mothers and babies go through significant changes in their first year. For your little one, many different kinds of development come together, in this case leading to them pulling themselves up and from there to baby standing. They have to acquire:
- A set of involuntary posture control processes that lets them keep their balance against gravity
- Weight bearing on their legs and feet
- Gross motor skills to operate and coordinate their body's large muscles
It's important to remember that every baby is different and develops at their own pace. The milestones we talk about on the way to your baby pulling up alone are just rough guidelines to help you recognize the stages and provide the right learning activities for your little one.
