Q.

11mth old stopped trying to stand

My daughter started to pull herself up to stand at 10 months. She only did this for a week or two then stopped again, and hasn''t tried since. She will now only pull herself up if I hold her hands. Is this normal?

This is quite normal. Your baby daughter will soon start trying to pull herself up again and should start walking at around 13 months or so.
