Nine months is a magical time for many babies.
They should be able to stand holding onto furniture or their crib rails.
At nine months, most babies will be able to roll across the floor. Watch out because some will have mastered the art of power-rolling and can get from point A to point B faster than you think they can.
At nine months, some babies will be crawling, whether that’s army crawling on their bellies or scooting across the floor on all fours.
By this point, their fine motor skills are becoming more advanced. They should be able to pick up small objects using a finger and thumb in a pincer grasp.
Baby might start getting excited by their favorite foods and be able to pick up Cheerios, or pieces of toast or banana.
At nine months old, baby can wave goodbye or hello, and could be saying things like “Dada” or “Mama.”
However, it’s important to remember that there’s a huge range of normal development for children, and it’s okay if they aren’t doing these things yet. However, it is worth mentioning to your pediatrician if it seems like baby isn’t hitting any of his milestones.
