Your baby’s world

8 months

Ready to move in new ways, your baby gets ready to cruise.

This month, your 8-month old is crawling, cruising, and experimenting with all-new ways to explore the world around her. When your baby is standing, encourage her by holding her favorite toy just out of reach and getting her to “cruise” along the furniture to get it.

All babies develop at different rates. You should not be concerned if your baby does something later or earlier than your friend's children. In general, by the end of your baby's eighth month, she will likely be able to do the following: 


  • Crawl
  • Say “dada” without necessarily knowing what it means
  • Move from laying on her stomach to a sitting position
  • “Inspect” toys

Make cute photos with your funny baby, upload to the app. Write about his/her new skills.
