Q&A: 11 Month Old Not Crawling, Pulling Up or Standing

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

My son just turned 11 months old. He is not crawling, pulling up, or standing. He does roll around the floor, and tries to “bounce” himself when on his stomach; and just recently, he does seem to be more interested in trying to pull himself up by latching his arms around my arm or body. He does not seem to …

My baby girl is 5 months old. She can sit when put in a sitting position, but when you want her to stand up and hold her, she’ll use one leg and cry. She hasn’t put weight on her legs yet and when you put her on her stomach, she cries but when she is lying, she kicks with her …

Q&A: 5 Month Old Won’t Put Weight on Arms

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

I have a few concerns about my 5 1/2-month-old daughter. She has strong neck control and holds her head very steady. However, when on her stomach, she won’t push up hardly at all.

Q&A: 3 Month Old Baby with Stiff Legs

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

My daughter was born 3 months ago via c-section (she was breech). Since birth, she has been very rigid and stiff. Her legs would constantly lock tight and she could even stand on her feet with straight legs (being held of course) within the first month or so. I’m just concerned because I’ve been reading stuff about cerebral palsy and …

Q&A: 5 Month Old Not Grabbing Toys & Not Bearing Weight on Legs

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

My son is 5 months. I’m not concerned about his social interaction at all. He is a happy, “talkative,” and smiling baby. However, there are two things I’m concerned with regarding his motor skills. 1. Reaching for toys. Ethan met the guidelines for batting at toys but just now started to reach for them. When he does reach for them, …

My son is seven months old. He rolls over, can lift his head and seems to have pretty good control. He cannot sit by himself, but can sit supported.

My 10 1/2 month old son almost always stands on his tip-toes. He can not stand without support yet but when we hold him in a standing position or when he is in his exersaucer, he is on his toes. I have tried to manipulate his feet to a flat position but he rarely does it or only stands flat …

Q&A: 9 Month Old Not Making Consonant Sounds

Day2DayParenting Child Development, Infants 3 - 12 Months

My 9 month old daughter is not yet making any consonant sounds. Is this cause for concern, or still too early to worry? I am not that concerned at age 9 months if you are not hearing a lot of consonant-vowel combinations yet, although many babies do start to form single syllable consonant-vowels such as “ba”, “ma” or “na” in …
