Hi everyone, just wondering some rough development stages your little ones had. I’m not following charts, and so on, but I’m quite amazed with the speedy development that Toby had, especially in the last month or so, and I’m reading a bit about it. I feel in some areas he’s a bit ahead of himself.
He just turned 4 months old; he’s been holding his head and back quite well before he was 2 months old, and being generally quite strong; he never liked being held like a baby. I guess this is because he’s carried in the sling all the time (we don’t even have a pushchair). In the last couple of weeks, he’s been very mobile; sitting up (aided, and recently unaided too for a short while). Standing up is his thing. and this is where I feel he’s particularly strong; if you try to help him sitting up, he goes straight into standing up. He also jumps and pushes himself up on my knees. Because he’s only 4 months old, I just feel a bit scared to let him stand on his legs for too long, but at the same time, he enjoys that a lot.
He’s been quite vocal the last week or so too; a delight to listen and watch… He’s turning on his tummy too, very agile; that as well in the last few weeks or so. He loves sleeping on his tummy, and though I understand is not quite recommended to let them sleep like that, he seems to know what he’s doing. I keep a close eye on him as we co-sleep. Thanks, Bianca
