Is It Natural For A 6 Month Baby To Ask To Stand Up And Sit Down?
.. My child is 6 months old. He can’t sit alone yet, but he can sit on it for a long time. And he often asks to stand up. Even though he hasn’t been able to stand on his own, but if he stands he can already stand up. Is it natural for my child’s development? And the word people say the child can’t yet sit down and sit down, he will bend his spine? And people say that they can’t stand on their own at such an age that their legs will be twisted. I’m afraid. And what should I do by overcoming my child’s development?
Hello Ms. Nitha! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Children aged 6 months should have been able to last a long time (maintain its position) when positioned sitting even though he could not sit alone. This is normal and is actually good for your child. Being able to hold his own body weight is one sign he is ready to start eating complementary foods. The child's spine will not bend because it sits. At the age of 6 months he also began to learn to stand by relying on other people or objects around. This learning process is important for babies and should not be hindered only because Mother is afraid that her legs will become bent. The growth of the foot can become abnormal if you put him in a walker walk that makes him walk on his own even though he cannot stand (leaning on his legs). Mothers actually need to stimulate the baby more often, so that motor development can develop properly. At the age of 6 months, start giving a soft MPASI, for example milk porridge. Use boiled water to boil it in making MPASI. Cool the MPASI at room temperature before giving it to the child and the MPASI that is not consumed should not be stored again.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
