    Default Sitting up and rolling??

    Should my 7 month old be sitting yet? I'm sure my son was sitting by this age??
    Plus she only rolls from her back to her front but not the other way yet is that unusual?

    I would wait till 9 months at least before you start getting concerned about her being able to sit up unassisted. This is roughly the same that they should be sitting up by themselves.

    I'd say 10 months is more normal. DD is nearly 8 months and can only sit by herself for like a minute before she falls over.

    I would be too concerned, like PP said if by 9 months she can't I might start to worry, but all babies are differen!

    OP, if it makes you feel any better, my DS (who turns 6m old in a couple of days) can't sit up yet. He's an expert roller, though, but this may be because I've been more focussed on the tummy time exercises instead of sitting him up.

    Now I feel a bit guilty - like I've been remiss in helping him learn to sit up! Tomorrow I'll prop him up with some pillows on the floor and see how he goes. He's got a really strong neck already - probably because he spends so much time in a Baby Bjorn, a Bumbo and a Jolly Jumper!

    OP, I wouldn't be worried - they all develop at a different rate and your bub is still within the 'normal' range. My DD didn't crawl till nearly 11m and didn't walk till 16m.
