Cruises along the furniture

After being able to pull up to stand, soon enough, Your Child will be able to cruise around while holding onto furniture. 

Your baby is now on the move! After months of developing strength and coordination and acquiring the skill to be able to pull up to stand, the little one can now put weight on feet while holding onto a sturdy piece of furniture for support. They hold onto the support and shuffle around the house. Cruising is a foundation for walking without support, which will soon happen. 

How to support this development
Let Your Child roam freely, but be sure to watch over them. Make sure all the furniture in the house is sturdy and well-mounted. A sofa or coffee table should be free of objects the little one can grab onto. Make sure Your Child get plenty of walking practice on bare feet as it will help them to develop ankle stability.

Note: All children develop differently and at their own pace. For children born preterm, the referred timeframe for achieving the various developmental milestones might be incorrect.

Source: The information and graphs about when children reach specific milestones are taken from various sources, including the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Denver Developmental Screening Test, and the State Institute of Early Childhood Research, Germany (IFP).
