Your baby's motor development

At around 10 months

  • Your baby can crawl on all fours and can even move quite quickly. He has finally conquered mobility! Do not panic, however, if your child does not adopt this method of moving:  some babies go directly to walking without crawling on all fours.
  • He stands up by going onto his knees, first of all, then going into a half kneeling position with one knee on the ground and the other flexed supported on his foot. From this position, he pushes on his feet while holding onto something with his hands and up he comes into a standing position!
  • If your child manages to stand up by holding onto the bars of his playpen or crib, he will probably be walking within around 3 months.
  • He can manage a few steps holding onto furniture but frequently falls down.
