That's absolutely fine - in fact it helps him to develop. How can I help my child to stand? Your child can be held supported in a standing position from an early age This allows the child to experience the feeling of their body weight through their feet. They may bounce up and down. They do this to develop the strength in their ...

As someone else has said above, if it was painful for him to do this he would stop. I believe any movement they are making is only helping to strengthen their muscles so that there is less risk of joint problems when they are older. Stronger muscles will help to support joints. My daughter loved to bounce when she was younger (less than 1 year old), she ...

No, there is no health risk. Your grandson is actually doing something healthy — building his leg muscles to be able to stand more easily, and to raise and lower himself in a more controlled, coordinated way. Sounds like he'll be walking in the next few months!

There are seats you can get for babies to bounce in, which my daughter loved, but her orthopedic doctor said not to use for risk of hip problems. However, that was an external device for a child who already had a high enough risk of hip problems that she had an orthopedic doctor. My guess is the person who told you had heard similar advice, perhaps ...

I can't think of any risk in this normal behavior (yes, this qualifies as normal) in a normal baby (contrast this to children who engage in abnormal activity, e.g. head-banging, who are putting themselves at risk). If anything, your grandson is showing good strength in his legs, good balance (he's not falling over with movement), and good large-motor ...

In at least one way, TV is harmful to an infant - every minute spent watching is a minute lost to other, better activities. I guaranty your child would rather watch and listen to you than to the TV. Try putting her in one of those bouncy-relining seats on the counter while you cook or clean, and narrate your activities. You'll be amazed how entertaining ...

I have allowed my little girl to watch TV on and off pretty much since she was born. This has only ever been for short periods though as I am not a big TV watcher myself. I have always interacted with her during watching TV and talked to her about what's on the screen etc. She's just coming up to 2 now and has moved up to the next class in nursery a ...

My nurse told me do not let the child watching TV before 2 years old and then limited the time for the to watching. The over-stimulation may cause attention problem for them later on. The research shows that watching TV in the early age causes child suffer from ADHD in the early school. But I find it is difficult nowadays for us not using tablet, phone and ...

Not knowing why precipitates not knowing how, which precipitates many life problems-- which tend to persist until you learn 'why'. Alternatively, your life just remains cloudy. No real sun, not much rain, just...cloudy...with a chance of precipitation...and you become the type who has little better to say than because I said so. but the serious-face while ...

You and the mother of your kid are a team. If you were not, you could just split apart, isnt it? When you are a manager of a department and you want to build your own team, you have basically two philosophies: -You can focus on peoples weakness and force people to improve in every aspect they are bad, never recognizing their strenghts -Or you focus on what ...

The key here isn't television. That is an artifact of the environment. The issue is parents who neglect their children for hours on end which incidentally creates a situation where the kids may watch TV for extended periods. It doesn't matter if the parents watch TV all day themselves also, that's just another form of disregarding your children. Watching ...
