I remember when my older son started pulling up on things. I was so excited he was standing, holding onto things and pulling himself up.
What was I thinking?
Because after he did that, he started cruising. You know, “walking” around holding onto objects? More often than not, he’d trip over his own feet and tumble after a few sideways shuffles holding onto the couch, but he’d just get right back up and keep going.
Around 9 months old, a baby will start to cruise. Make sure his environment is safe and there’s nothing he can reach or fall on that would be harmful.
