Is it ok for 13 week old baby to "stand up"?


Chloe loves standing up at the moment, and she can actually stand all by herself holding onto our footstall (with me spotting her of course!). Just wondered whether this is safe or not? Wouldn't want to put too much pressure on her joints or anything, but like I said she does seem to really enjoy it lol!

I'm thinking might be better to put her in the jumperoo (her Christmas present) as it will be less weightbearing but she can still push on her legs the same way she does now to make it jump?

Julian's done it since he was born. He can stand holding onto our hands/table and has done since 2 1/2-3 months. He literally won't let you sit him down!

My LO's pedi told me it was good and helping build their leg muscles. My little man was doing it for the dr. at his two month apt and dr. was proud.. So I think its ok and he likes it.

Haha that's amazing!! I was kinda surprised that she could do it as she hasn't even attempted to roll yet

I have the same problem lol, i really struggle to burp her sitting down or hold her on my lap because she just goes rigid and tries to stand

Yeah, my one is exactly the same, no interest in rolling but can stand self-supported in his cot at 15 weeks and has been standing bearing all his weight for weeks. Doc said it was fine, he's just strong. Has held his head up from birth.

My LO does this too. If I hold onto his hands he will pull himself forwards and stand up. My mum tells me off and says his legs will go 'bandy', but like you say, he seems to enjoy it, it makes him smile. So I don't know if its harmful to development but I can't wait to put him in his jumperoo at Christmas - I too am thinking this will be better for him....

Keelan loves doing this!! I think he's gunna love his jumperoo.

The health visitor did it to him on one his checks, thats how we learned he could do it so I don't think it's harmful.
