My Baby – Week 34

It's important to keep in mind that all babies reach milestones in their own time, at their own pace. By week 34, your baby might be able to stand while holding on to someone or something, play peek-a-boo, wave, clap his hands, crawl, and maybe even get up into a sitting position from his stomach, or pull into a standing position from sitting. If your baby hasn’t hit all these milestones yet, be patient. A month or two can bring a world of change.

You may experience some troubles leaving your child with the babysitter, as separation anxiety may be beginning for the first time. But, you may also find the opposite is occurring; your child is perfectly content and happy when she is with the babysitter, but she acts up whenever you come home. There are many possibilities that could be causing this behavior. Just try to focus on not getting frustrated if your baby seems fine to leave you — instead, focus on the fact that you are raising a baby who feels secure and loved! And if separation anxiety is becoming too hard, try to spend a little extra time at home together.

    When it reads in the first paragraph all the ‘milestones’ a baby hits at 34 weeks, mine daughter hasn’t reached any of them yet.

  2. Cassie says:

    My daughter is doing all of these things her waving bye bye was so cute because her hand was facing herself instead of me leaving for work. She is on the move since she is mastering crawling and loves to get into things

  3. Angel says:

    My son is rolling, crawling, climbing, standing, trying to walk and just a busy busy little bee. Has been for a couple months now…. Boy oh boy my hands are full. But it sure is fun =)

    Well this is all great and all….but my son has been crawling since 6 months and a week….he has been pulling him self up since 6 and a half months…..he is just soo busy and on the move…cherish it if they arnt moving yet!! He is always getting into things, trying to crawl up the stairs etc….good luck ladies!

  5. Grace says:

    All these things are happening with my boy!

  6. kristina says:

    my son will be 8 months on the 8th and he is crawling standing in his bed and now he can climb onto our bed from the floor its so crazy how fast he is growing

  7. Janice says:

    He can sit up by him self, now, and he is so happy.

  8. My little girl just turned 8 months old and she’s progressing nicely. She can roll over every way and go from laying to sitting, pull herself up to a standing position holding onto furniture, and she has let go a few times and stood for a few seconds. She can clap her hands together and just started waving a few days ago. I love going through this experience. This is my third child and it never gets old. With each child it is new and exciting. I will soon face the fact that I have to go back to work and leave my child. I think I may take a bit more time off. I think I may go back when she turns a year old. Which will be in November. I need to go back in order to have one more child. We need my health insurance for infertility issues. After that, I will be a stay at home mom and may start up a hair salon at my home. I may as well put my cosmetology license to work. I want to be home with my children and I’m going to find a way to do so, just like I did with my teenage sons.

    my son will be 8 months on friday.. And he is all over the place.. Hes crawling (has been for a couple months now), walking along the furniture, standing on his own and trying to take steps, trying to talk and has got his two bottom teeth… Im soo proud of my lil guy hes advancing sooo quickly

  10. TazzyVa2001 says:

    My little one will be 8 months old next week, and is crawling, pulling herself up, walking along the furniture while holding on, climbing onto the couch and up the stairs, and is now standing up in the middle of the floor without holding onto anything… Lord help me, I have to chase her everywhere!

  11. Jess1477 says:

    My little one is just starting to crawl! 🙂

  12. If any of you have more than one child, you can know how different all babies are. My 7 month old has been crawling since 5 1/2 months, sitting up, rolling and now climbing stairs. I can’t keep him still for anything. My daughter didn’t crawl until 9 months. Don’t ever feel frustrated with what age your infants reach their milestones. Trust me, it’ll come….I wish my Sammy would sit still sometimes. He’s into EVERYTHING. Just love your children more than anything in the world. They grow too fast..

      Thank you! I see this post is old but if you get this thank you because my LO is almost 8 months and he’s not crawling or sitting up on his own yet, so yes I am a VERY frustrated mom, especially when reading about other babies and what they’re doing. So thank you 🙂

  13. chasity says:

    My baby is almost 8mos. And she hasn’t crawl or stand up by her self yet. I’m enjoying her being still at this time.

  14. Cintia says:

    My baby is about to turn 8 months and she can crawl, pull herself up and she is now trying to climb on couch. I’m so proud of her 🙂

  15. My son is 8 months and still he isn’t crawling or standing, but I will be patient.
