Babies Learn to Stand – level 3

06-08-2021 15:00

Since 1990, an Icelandic doctor has been teaching young babies to stand and balance.

As a demonstration, he stood in a pool and held one baby up on his hand, and the baby managed to stand without falling. His simple techniques are to strengthen their spines and upper bodies and this puzzles a few doctors.

Another doctor said that he has no idea how the doctor does this and it is not logical or normal, as babies usually learn to stand by leaning on a chair at seven to eight months old.

Difficult words: puzzle (confuse).
