Transition from crawling to walking and infants' actions with objects and people

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Associations between infants' transition to walking and object activities were examined. Fifty infants were observed longitudinally during home observations. At 11months, all infants were crawlers; at 13months, half became walkers. Over age, infants increased their total time with objects and frequency of sharing objects with mothers. Bidirectional influences between locomotion and object actions were found. Walking was associated with new forms of object behaviors: Walkers accessed distant objects, carried objects, and approached mothers to share objects; crawlers preferred objects close at hand and shared objects while remaining stationary. Earlier object activities predicted walking status: Crawlers who accessed distant objects, carried objects, and shared objects over distances at 11months were more likely to walk by 13months.
