As a parent, especially a first time parent, tracking your baby’s developmental milestones can be stressful and frustrating when your baby appears to be behind.
We went through a bit of this with our daughter.
At 9 months, our daycare performed the ASQ-3 test to test motor skill, communication, and other milestones. Sure enough, she was behind in most areas.
As suggested, we brought the test results to our pediatrician to get a professional’s perspective, and they suggested a physical therapy evaluation.
The most concerning area was that she wasn’t yet starting to crawl or pull herself up. However, at the physical therapist’s evaluation, we were told that we shouldn’t really be concerned yet; we simply had to keep working at it.
Lots of tummy time.
But we also wanted to work on climbing/pulling, so we evaluated what some of the best baby climbing toys are for this year. In this post, we’ll go through the ones we considered and tell you all about them.
