Very Active 6 month old boy

Hi Doc, my 6month old boy is extremely busy. he is already crawling and even dangerously attempting to stand up against big object like couches. he is interested in everything around the house except his toys. Bathing and dressing him are also a mission as you have to constantly distract him from wanting to move around touching everything. The minute he wakes up he has to instantly get busy. He just cannot sit still or lie around. Is this normal, or am i being paranoid. Every other thing is normal, eating and drinking well, and weighs 8.05 kg. Thanks!

It is difficult to be sure about this. Your baby son seems to be very strong and his milestones are advanced. He should just be sitting now.He seems to be a very bright baby who is probably just very interested in the world around him.His weight is slightly below the average for his age, but there is no need to be concerned.
