So, Clara started pushing herself backwards at 4 months and is now doing a hybrid of commando and bear style crawling forward at 5 months. Being the proud Mommy I am I thought this was all good (yet scary as I'm nowhere near baby-proofed yet). However, I had a friend tell me that it's bad for her to be pushing herself up the way she does (she does the downward dog position of yoga all the time when down on the floor playing). According to this friend it will make her ankles and wrists have problems because they shouldn't be taking the weight of her body so young (she doesn't weigh alot mind you, 14lb 3oz at her 5 month appointment). I think my friend is talking out her a$$ personally, but it has me a little worried that she might be right. Anyone else ever heard of this. Here's a picture so you see what I mean.
