1 year child not able to crawl, stand on her own. But is able to do so with others help. - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
this is regarding my daughter who will be turning 1 year in mid-march
she hasn't started crawling nor she walks
if we make her sit she will sit
if we make her stand she will continue to stand with support
but none of the activities she does on her own
so i am a bit concerned
coz the kids of her age in my locality are already either crawling or standing/walking on their own
I would like to share with you this information.
Milestones in the development of a child can vary with every child.
yes i do understand that
but while going through articles on the internet most of the people talk that the kids should be either starting to crawl or walk by the time they are one year
and my kid seems to show no interest
And at times milestones also skip to pass into the next level.
and also when we try to keep something beyond her reach she will just try and if not reachable she will begin to cry or ignore the toy
Therefore at 1 year of age, if your child is able to sit and stand with support, I am extremely happy with her development.
actaully she does not sit on her own...we have to make her sit and then she maintains the position without furhter support
On an average, children at one year walk with support. A few of them can be able to walk without support too.
so you mean to say i should not be worried/concerned
Yes. Your daughters milestone development seems appropriate to me.
OK...coz i got different kind of feedback from my peers and social circle whose kids are in the similar age group
another thing is that at times my daughter gets a bit angry...
i mean she just yells at top of her voice and stiffs her body while shouting
I am pleased to know that your daughter is able to express her emotions.
which is again a normal development.
but stiffening her body?
this happens only when she yells or shout at top of her voice
Whether or not this stiffening is part of her normal reaction or an abnormal pathology can be understood only by visualizing the event.
I would suggest you to record the event when it happens next and reveal it to your doctor.
thanks doctor XXXXXXX for your advise and time
have a great day ahead...
If you wish you may also send a copy and I will be able to comment on it.
I hope you are convinced with me.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
