Re: annoying relatives, complaining!

what a meanie, I think Tony would just repeat dadadadada by 8 months, some kids don't even crawl at all, they skip that and start walking! Grrrr...some people! My son walked at 9 months and now people are telling me that he's bowlegged because of it and I should stop him from walking, like I should tie him down or something!

I think someone is getting forgetful in her old age.

I wonder how much of it is that babies these days have better nutrition, both prenatally and after they are born so they are bigger. Mabye she was confusing age with size... just a thought.

My Hannah's 9 months and she doesn't walk, talk, or even crawl yet (well, she army crawls). I'm not worried about her!
That is so true! Also, I have had it with relatives or "friends" who think they can say whatever they want and critique anyone's parenting style. I heard the same thing about why my oldest son wasn't walking (because I held him too much) or crawling (because he wears cloth diapers) or he is speech delayed (because I don't read to him enough--which isn't true)--he is developmentally delayed and it has nothing to do with any of those things. It is interesting now, because my youngest isn't delayed and I have worn him in a sling for even longer than my oldest! I like the idea of laughing loudly. I don't have any advice--but just wanted to say I know how that is and it is very annoying! (((HUGS))) (Also, I think what she said IS crazy: my youngest started saying some words around 15 months and walked at 12 months and my oldest didn't started actually talking until 2.5yrs and walking around 17months)
