Thank you for the question.
At the age of 9 months, a normal baby boy weighs between 8-10 kg, with a length of goods ranging from 70 to 74 cm. At this age too, most babies are already adept at raising their heads, rolling around, sitting alone, and supporting their weight when set up. 9-month-old babies also begin to be invited to interact, such as being taught to imitate voices, invited to joke, and he will look sad if left by people who often come in contact with him.
Judging from the information you convey, it seems that your baby's growth is still normal according to the age standard, as well as its development. As long as your baby is able to sit upright, even if seated, and often asks to be guided, there is likely nothing you need to worry about. The speed of growth and development of each baby can indeed vary greatly. Not all babies will also experience the crawling phase during their development. So, it is not right to judge whether a baby's growth and development is normal just by comparing it to a proper baby. As long as your baby's growth and development are still in the normal range according to his age standard (based on standard growth and development standards), meaning that your baby's condition is still reasonable and does not require special handling.
So, in order to more accurately monitor your baby's growth and development, you should check your baby regularly to the doctor or pediatrician every month. With his experience and competence, of course doctors better understand whether your baby's condition is still normal, or not.
In the meantime, you just need to focus on giving your baby healthy, nutritious milk and MPASI to support their growth and development. Also make sure you are diligent in stimulating your baby's development, for example by often asking him to talk, joke around, train him with toys according to his age, do not give him a gadget too early, and do not let the baby play alone without adult supervision.
Hope this helps ...
