Normal Development In Infants 9 Months?

Hello Nina, Thank you for your inquiries on HealthReplies.com
Every baby has a different development and growth from one another. At the age of 9 months, the baby is experiencing physical changes and an increase in intelligence in processing motor skills. A healthy baby will experience growth and body weight that always increases, and in general, a 9 month old baby should ideally weigh 8.9 kg, and a height of about 70.5 cm.
In normal conditions, a 9 month old baby can start babbling, imitating sounds, and playing with toys, such as stacking blocks, drinking alone, standing and learning to walk while still holding on. Here are some signs that a child is experiencing delays in motor development, namely:
The child is not able to roll over at the age of 6 months Not able to sit alone without assistance until the age of 8 months Not able to crawl until the age of 12 months Not able to walk until the age of 15 months. If a lot of children meet the above criteria, you should consult a pediatrician, so that your child's examination is carried out, and the cause of the delay in growth and development is determined, which may be due to insufficient nutritional intake, receiving too little stimulation or stimulation, parenting by holding your baby too often, or because of a certain disease that affects them. But basically, if your child's growth every month has increased, you don't need to worry, even though it's less than the standard ideal or less than its peers. Likewise with the motor skills of children, as long as you don't have the accompanying disease you don't need to worry, just stimulate or stimulate your child.
Some things you can do at home
Provide optimal nutritional intake Let your baby move freely Provide stimulation to learn to sit, stand or walk Put a toy in front of him so that the baby feels comfortable sitting for a long time, so that your baby is able to sit alone Do not hold your baby too often Thank you, hope it is useful.
