At what age (typically) do babies start to pull themselves to a stand?

Yeah, my little bundle of joy is more interested in being on her feet than hands and knees. She's been pulling herself up to a stand since around the 6 month mark, but its been a while since my others were babies, and that seems "soonish" to me.

I've tried to find "milestone markers" via google, but nothing says anything about pulling themselves to a stand.

  • My kids were around 8-9 months. I work at a daycare. 6 months is early. She might walk early.

  • my daughter started walking at 7 1/2 months so...6 months or so maybe? I don't remember
    we were SO happy about it- but soon realized life as we knew it was OVER! Hahaha

  • Yikes! Mine isn't sitting unsupported yet. Sh is 7 months. I think my first did the pull around a year? Sat up at 9 months?

  • My son sat alone at 6 months (he could barely master rolling over) only crawled for literally a week, and then by 8 months was standing and walking. Every kid is different.

  • Her daddy walked at 9 months, I did at 10, but all her older siblings didn't until after a year (although had daddy not been deployed, the boy probably would have walked much sooner).
