My son is 8 months old and has been crawling for 2 months. for about the past month or so he has been pulling himself up and cruising (holding onto couch, table, etc.) Lately he has been under the impression that he can stand or walk independantly (which is not the case) so he will just let go.. i try to save him but sometimes it happens so fast theres nothing i can do. he gets bumps and bruises on his head to the point that i am honestly concerned. I dont know what to do. I cant carry him all day long but im scared of brain damage or something. is this normal? any advice?
