Your Baby Boy Is On His Way To Achieve His Full Development Potential!

9-12 Months Development

At this stage, in the 9 to 12 month period, your baby can crawl on his belly and on his hands and knees. As he rises and crawls on his hands and knees, your baby begins to move towards independent sitting.

Here, for the first time, your baby must use a narrower surface for balance, and he must learn to balance himself through his upper body. At this stage of sitting, your baby’s balance system and his ability to balance towards his body’s center becomes crucial.

What to expect?

At this stage of your baby’s life he is able to crawl on his belly, and can even rise up to crawl on his hands-and-knees. As he crawls, his balance system, and his independent movement ability in space continues to develop, and we must continue to guide our baby in the next developmental stages.

At this stage of sitting, your baby’s balance system and his ability to balance towards his body’s center becomes crucial. It allows him to detach his hands from the floor, and implement his fine motor skills more explicitly with clapping, eating independently, drawing, and more.

In addition, you can see your baby’s first attempts to stand up on both feet while leaning on an object.Another characteristic of this stage is your baby’s ability to communicate with his surroundings in a clearer way as he begins to stand and play around, or even in some cases begin to circle around objects, and begin walking step by step.

Each stage is built on the previous one. Your baby must complete each stage in his development. Therefore it is important to continue guiding him and instilling a solid developmental base, which will lead him through to the next developmental stages.

Where Should You Focus?

When your baby reaches the 9-12 month stage we suggest that you focus with your baby on:

  • Provide your baby confidence in sitting & the transitioning to crawling with custom games and exercises.
  • Focus on the fundamentals of transitioning from sitting to standing. - Important!
  • Start to help your baby develop confidence in standing securely without falling.
  • Focus on independent standing & give your baby the confidence he needs in the first steps he is making. - Important!
  • Teach your baby to move more safely in space and to block when losing their balance - the Parachute Reflex and Rocking.
