Your baby's motor development

At around 8 months

  • In a sitting position, your baby can lean forward and grab a toy, then straighten himself again without falling over. He supports himself with his hands to keep his balance.
  • Lying on his back, your child can sit up on his own by supporting himself on one of his arms.
  • He can drink from his bottle or a sippy cup on his own.
