Ideas for Squatting
Sit-to-stand is a process whereby a baby transition from sitting upright to side sitting, then being on their knees to half kneeling until they finally up in their feet while holding on to a furniture for balance to keep them upright.
Cruising is when the baby is walking while holding onto objects. They might use the furniture to move around or lean from one object to another to work the room. Cruising shows that the baby is learning how to shift weight and balance while taking steps. It also prepares for the ability to propel forward, which is required for walking.
