Mom needs to step back, relax, take a deep breath, have a glass of wine maybe........ and ENJOY the little one doing his exploring that is AGE APPROPRIATE!

All babies do these things, pull up and stand on their own and have been doing it just fine since the beginning of time. All babies "play" with things placed in front of them be it a knick knack, toy, moms fingers/hand and even FOOD! It's normal and part of growing and developing.

She went ballistic because the baby scratched his face w/ his fingernail........ yikes. She is only setting herself up for a LOT of undue stress and anguish. Babies and kids are going to get scraps, scratches, bumps and bruises. We can't put them in bubble wrap till they are 18.

The only issue with "bowed legs" comes from a propensity these days for deciding that kids are "allergic" to milk, and giving them no other source of calcium or vitamin D. Since this kid is 7 months and should be on either formula or breast milk, this shouldn't be an issue.

my oldest was crusing furniture by 6 months and walking by 9 months. He wasn't bowlegged and his bones didn't snap. He was, however a little top heavy and would topple over easily.

I, too fed him cereal by the time he was 3 months old. I got many tsk tsk tsks from mothers my age, but I paid attention to the old school mommas... they had been there done that. by 7moths old, I had done away with my son's plate (it only ended up on the floor anyway)and plopped his food right there on the table in front of him. He had toddler spoons and a sippy cup. That boy loooooved dirty rice . His only allergy is shellfish.
