My (almost) 8 month old can Stand up in his play yard holding the edges. He can inch around the walls hanging on and he stays standing for a long time. Is this unusual?

Do I have a super human baby? Should I start making him some tights so that he can go fight crime when gets bigger?

  • So... a super normal super hero then? LOL! No tights, got it. I guess I just revealed my age since I grew up watching Adam West as Batman! HAHAHA! (they were were already old re-runs though).

  • That sounds normal... My son 8 months when he first started holding onto furntiure to walk, and my 10 months he was a pro and trying to walk on his own.

    Even if he is super human tho... I wouldn't get the tights yet... Seems like you might be setting him up for failure... Go with a cape!

  • I think by ten months DD would cruise with just one hand. SS was walking at 11 months, he started standing at 7 and was cruising just before 8 months. Seems relatively normal. About as normal as crawling at 6 months, and also as normal as crawling at 10 months.

  • That's normal. My son started walkng without hanging onto stuff the week before he turned 9 months old...

  • And Crystal makes a great point. A cape or a mask would be a lot better. Kids can be cruel and the tights would inevitably end in torture.

  • I agree with cape and mask.

    My oldest was cruising furniture at 7 months, my second and third never did cruise furniture, they just waited until they could take off walking! lol Stinkers.

  • It's normal, my youngest was doing that at 8 months and at 9 months she got up and ran across the livingroom.

  • My daughter just turned nine months this past saturday and she has been doing this for little over a month. It seems that lately kids are doing things much faster then their counter parts of just a few years ago. It may also be due to having older siblings. My daughter has two older siblings 4 and 6 years old. She started crawling at 6.5 months old. Im sure she will be walking before her first birthday. Its not as unusual as in may have once been. : ]
