6.    Sit (8 months old)

When children can gather the strength in their arms, head and neck, control their body, keep balanced, they can sit up and look around. At this time, their eyesight allows them to see things and they will try their best to stand up to have a better view.

At first, they can’t sit long. To encourage children to sit, you should place their toys in front of them, then move the toys left side to side, and stimulate children to get the toys by themselves.

7.    Crawl (6-10 months old)

You may find your children lying on the floor moving their bodies with their abdomen. To help children learn to crawl, give them clean space. Next, place things that your children like around them (including you), and they have to come to get it. Make sure that the environment is safe for babies to learn to crawl. Join crawling with them and observe them to make sure there’s nothing harmful to them.

8.    Pull up (8 months old)

So far, babies are still dependent on their mothers to stand on their feet. Around the 8th month, their body and muscles are strong enough to help babies stand up on their own. This is also the time babies realize that they can turn their body around, sit up, crawl, and stand by themselves.

In the beginning, babies will need a thing to drag themselves up, like the edge of the bed, sofa or their mother’s legs. Therefore, you need to remove things that are unsafe, unstable, or unsharp to not cause harm to babies. At about 10-12 months old, babies will know how to fold their knees every time they sit down and stand up. 

9.    Walk (10-18 months old)

Description: Walking helps children to complete the primary physical skills as well as to have social contacts.

Walking helps children to complete the primary physical skills as well as to have social contacts.

The first steps are very important. Walking requires strength from muscles, coordination, balance, and a certain level of emotional maturity. For example, babies need confidence to start walking. It takes some babies weeks to start first steps.

Walking helps children to complete the primary physical skills as well as to have social contacts.

Signs of slow developments

In most cases, children who have slow developments can soon keep up with others. However, sometimes, the delay in developing exhibits some problems:

Your children have slow developments in more than 1 major. For example, at 15 months old, they neither know how to walk nor speak a single word; neither turn around to look at their mothers when the mothers come in the room nor when calling their names.

Your children barely understand your talking. At about 8-12 months old, most babies are interested in teddy bears, and if you ask them where the teddy bears are, they will go find or at least throw their eyesight to the place you’re pointing at. At 12-15 months old, babies start responding to simple calls with words. If you ask a 1-year-old baby to take his shoes to you, he will do it.
