Parents amazed when eight-week-old baby daughter learns to stand

1 Mins read

When Tezra Finn-Johnston, 31, and girlfriend Emily Derrick, 23, left hospital with their new baby, she could already support her own head.

She was born on January 31 and weighed just 5lbs 9oz, which was on the 5th percentile, meaning she weighed less than 5% of other babies her age.

But now 15-weeks-old, Lula is able to stand unassisted, supporting her own weight and her parents thing she might have been inspired by the strongman clips they watch on Youtube.

Tezra, from Kingswood, Bristol said: ‘When she was about a month old, she was having a tantrum and I tried to sit her on my knee to calm her.

‘Instead of sitting down, she just stood on my knee and wouldn’t bend her legs. ‘She did it a few more times later on in the weeks – eventually, I thought well if she can do it while she’s annoyed, maybe she can do it when she’s happy.

‘I tried to hold her and supported her, and she managed to take her own weight.’ Anecdotally, the pair don’t know anyone with a baby who was able to do any of those things so early.

Tezra said: ‘I don’t advise other people to try this with their baby, but I watched Babies on Netflix and in there I just got a few ideas from that really.

‘I’ve just always enjoyed being strong.
