Pulling to stand - getting closer to baby's first steps

One minute you are enjoying a rare, peaceful moment with a book and a cuppa when a little face peers over the top of coffee table at you.  And so begins your little one's journey in to the world of walking!

Babies love to be able to pull themselves up on things, not only to help strengthen their muscles in preparation for walking but to see what is going on and get a new vertical perspective on the world.

At first they may only be able to stand with your help as their little legs won't be able to support them, but soon you can expect to see them pulling themselves up to a standing position by using the furniture to support them.  They might even cruise between one piece of furniture to another which is a sure sign that walking won't be too far away.
