  • My DD will be 9mos on the 15th. Right now she's trying to crawl but not quite there, she rolls around til she gets to her destination. When she's in the crawl position she can push backwards. She just cut her 2 bottom teeth. I'm BF and she understands that if she pulls my shirt down she can eat( not a good thing). I'm trying to get her to say Da Da but she says la la and go go.

  • My 8 month old, sits unassisted and rolls around everywhere, but is not yet crawling. Like Farrahans baby, she pushes backwards while shes in the crawl position, but doesn't actually crawl yet. She has rocked a couple times, but that's it. She says mama and dada, but not consistently. She isn't on table foods yet and won't hold her bottle or sippy.

  • My son is 8 months old. He's crawling, pulling himself to stand, cruising around the furniture. He just cut his first tooth. He eats some table food and holds his bottle. Not fond of the sippy cup yet. Beginning to self-feed. He knows some sign language, and can say mama, dada, kitty (kii kii) and ball. Talks constantly and is infatuated with lights and light switches. Every baby develops at their own pace though. My friend's 9-month old is just now doing exactly the same thing as my son minus cruising.

  • My ds will sit unassisted, play with toys. Responds to his name and will say mama and dada in a babbling form. He doest crawl but he just started this "worm" thing whre he moves his legs to crawl and drags his upper body on the ground. He hasnt put the whole arm and leg thing together. Can pick up small objects like cheerios and things but will not put them in his mouth. Drinks formula out of a bottle, will not hold his own bottle or take a sippy. He eats baby food 3 times a day plus 20-35 oz of formula.
