At about eight, nine, ten-month-olds your baby is probably. Be pulling to a standing position. And you may find that your baby is standing now in their crib, so you'll go in their room in the morning, and they're standing, using the, the railings of the crib. At about ten, 11 months, your baby is now. Cruising along furniture, using the coffee table, or the sofa.
