Putra is  8-month-old this week ...

Many babies are pulling themselves up now, grabbing on to any available piece of furniture and then standing while holding onto it in a wobbly way. Some babies walk as early as eight months, others not until well into their second year. All are still well within the normal range. Most babies work out how to stand up fairly easily on their own. The thing that stumps many of them is sitting back down again! When your little one pulls himself to a stand and then cries for you to sit him back down, don't rush to pick him up. Instead, show him how to bend his knees so his journey back down doesn't end with such a thud.

How your baby is growing

Your baby's newfound mobility means she's about to enter the land of bumps and falls. These are an inevitable part of growing up. Your heart may occasionally skip a beat or two, but now's the time to enjoy watching her explore her surroundings and discover her limits.

Holding back your desire to protect your baby allows her to learn for herself. However, to help your baby explore her environment fully, do try to make your home safe.

Try crawling around the floor, as getting down to her level helps you spot possible hazards. Secure fragile objects so they won't topple, for example, and keep any rickety furniture in rooms she doesn't use much.
