My dd is 5 1/2 mths old. She loves to "stand up" with our help. We usually hold her under her arms for a little support and help with balance. She is just starting to get strong enough to try holding her arms out to her side and hold her hands there.

My question- my MIL helps her stand by holding onto her hands only and with her arms raised above her head. She is still very wobbly and this makes me nervous- too much strain on her shoulders?

Is it okay to do this? When are babies ready to stand with arms overhead?

Thanks for any advice.
