    Default 12 months, not sitting or crawling.

    My nearly 12 month old won't sit unassisted, he gets up on all fours and commando crawls but is not crawling properly. He almost stands unassisted and will pull up into a standing position if he can grab onto something though.

    He is seeing a doctor about this but I can't get in for a few weeks.

    He was born with breathing difficulties and also has a hemangioma birthmark on his back near his spine which I have been told by a doctor can be a marker for spina bifida but I was told not to worry.

    Now that he isn't sitting or reaching milestones I am quite worried.

    Anyone who has been through similar or has any information?

    Ds was 10 months before sitting for short periods and usually needing assistance. He commando crawled but wasnt standing at 12 months. He started toddling around 15 months although very wobbly.

    Now he runs, jumps, climbs etc and you wouldnt be able to tell he was a late bloomer at all...

    Crawling isn't a milestone - MIL never crawled. So he's doing better than she did.

    I used to put DS in a donut cushion to help him sit. He could move around but not actually fall over.

    How is you little one now ? My dd is 9 mths and has the same birth mark but more towards her right shoulder we were told it shouldn't cause her any issues
    My dd has trouble sitting unsupported she holds herself up well doesn't flop down in front I support her at her hips in hopes of trying to to get her to learn not to tip side ways

    Hello b4us, my ds is 20 months now and only crawls, he sits up now, doesn't stand unassisted and doesn't walk yet. We've since found out he has lot's of health problems though which is contributing to all of this. We are waiting for diagnosis of Autism and other health problems I won't go into.

    I've since posted in the children with special needs sub forum on here about some other problems he faces.

    As this post was from quite a while ago.

    I hope your little one finds their way. Thanks for replying and good luck.
