Hi mummies. My daughter is just over 10 months now; she sits without support and is a bright bubbly baby. But she is not crawling and she can only stand for a few seconds against a sofa before tumbling down. I've been reading up on milestones on Bounty and I feel what they're saying is so ambitious! Is anyone else in my boat or do I need to get my DD checked out by a specialist do you think? She says two words like Mama or Baba and she loves to sing aloud and experiment with her voice ... all in all she's a very happy baby. But one of my Aunts questioned me why she isn't walking now and that "they all walk at this age" ... a part of me just died after talking to her. ;'(
Please help. I'm losing my mind ...do I need to get DD checked out by a specialist? She loves to tumble onto her tummy and roll all over ...she's a strong kicker too and expresses her opinion with her voice/expressions very well .... but Bounty says she should be "cruising along furniture" by now or crawling actively. I'm going nuts here.
