NAN: Physical Milestones at Nine Months

Lesson Progress
0% Complete

Around nine months old, a child can be expected to pull up to a standing position, stand while holding onto something for support, get into a sitting position and can sit without support.  He can also shake and throw objects and self-feed using his fingers.

If at this stage of development, an infant is still unable to bear weight on his legs with support, is unable to sit with support or doesn’t transfer objects from one hand to the other, share these observations with the child’s parents and encourage them to share this information with the child’s pediatrician.
