Her 2 month old is NOT walking. Parents can be so silly sometimes. They are so thrilled with each new development, they tend to embellish.

It will not hurt him, but the reality is that she is supporting his weight. If she  let you try it, you would quickly find out that you were holding him up while he moves his little legs.

Next thing she will be claiming he is talking and reading.

@xshellx2003: You said she’s holding on to his hands, correct? Whether she knows it or not, he’s putting at least a few pounds on her fingers. It’s like stepping on the scale while you touch the wall and then take your hand off the wall… even though you weren’t LEANING per say on the wall, you “gain” a few pounds. If she were to let go of his hands, he would not be able to “walk.”

@xshellx2003: My 3 year old sings along with my ipod. She is the next American Idol, I wish they would lower the age to 3…damn.

@missfireslayer: back off lady. My six year old is the next Idol.

I would not put my two month old up to stand like that.

@SoontobeMrsA: SING OFF!!

Exactly, who even THINKS about trying to let their 2 month old walk. That’s cray cray.

xshellx2003: Lol does she have him in a bumbo?

@xshellx2003: If I were you, she’d already be hidden/deleted from my page lol (I just roll like that). I like to keep them as “friends” for communication but can’t stand their updates.

 @missfireslayer:  I’m pretty sure Addie is a genius, too. I mean, she’s only 9 months, but she “dances” and “sings” along to music, so I think I’m going to start taking her to Broadway auditions next month.  🙂

In all honesty, parents (in general, but especially first time parents) have this annoying habit of bragging about how advanced/smart/strong/beautiful/etc… their kids are.  Your friend is probably just proud of her kid(s), so take what she says with a grain of salt. 

Also, there’s actually a reflex newborns have (someone help me out with this, I forgot the name) that allows babies up to 3 or 4 months to rigidly straighten their legs in certain positions; it seems like they’re “standing” on their own, but they lose the ability after a certain age and have to really learn to stand at a later date.

I agree with everyone before that said she is actually supporting most of his weight when he’s “walking”. But, he’s def not and it’s pretty not normal to let your baby do that anyway. Weird.
