My friend’s daughter, Sweet Baby, just turned six months old. Can I just say I can’t even fathom where the past six months have gone? It goes by so quickly, and babies develop in leaps and bounds at this point in their lives.
Sweet Baby surprised her mama this weekend by pulling up to standing at the coffee table in the living room.
Don’t be alarmed if your six month old is not pulling up to stand yet. The average age for pulling to standing is about 9 months. Sweet Baby is just proving to be precocious.
Another milestone a baby should hit around five months of age is hugging! What’s better than when your baby learns to wrap their chubby little arms around yours? Let baby hug you, a stuffed toy or a blanket. Some babies aren’t crazy about hugging. My older son certainly wasn’t, but if yours is a cuddler, then hug away.
Tip 0-6 months: When baby begins to be mobile, it’s time to baby proof. Take all breakable, sharp and heavy objects off of coffee tables and shelves. Make sure your cabinets have locks if they contain items that might be dangerous to baby.
