Your Child has developed enough strength and balance to be able to stand unassisted. Walking is now just one step away.
At around one year of age, many children can stand alone without the support of parents or objects. This opens a world of possibilities as the little one can now have a different view of the immediate environment. In no time, your child will be able to walk, run, and jump!
How to support this development
Even though Your Child can now bear weight on the legs to stand unassisted, their sense of balance is still developing. Be sure to stay close by to assist Your Child in case of a wobbly stance. Parents can also use stairs or toys to keep the little one engaged so they can practice standing for a longer time.
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).
