Is It Normal For A 3 Month Old Baby Not To Stand Up?
My daughter is a girl and on August 17, yesterday, she was only 3 months old, now she can stand up, but according to the doctor, is that normal? If we continue to practice standing from now on will there be no impact on his feet when he grows up?
The development of each baby can be different. In general, children aged 3 months have the following motor skills:
Playing with his own fingers and hands
Hand-eye coordination continues to improve
Can kick harder
Starting to grasp objects
Begin to tilt and face down
If the baby is not able to do the above, try to provide stimulation and stimulation first. Consult a pediatrician if at 3 months of age the child is unable to straighten his head, focus his eyes, does not respond to loud sounds, cannot hold objects, does not smile, and ignores the presence of a new face.
With regard to standing babies, generally babies begin to learn to stand at the age of 7-9 months. If the baby can stand early it is fine and fine. However, you should not force your child to support his own body at the age of 3 months. What may happen at this time is that the child is interested in setting his foot on his feet. This is normal. You can invite him to play by lifting his body so the baby can put his feet on the floor, but there is no need to make the baby support his body on his own feet. You can start teaching standing when it has been more than 7 months (average starting 8 months).
