    Default Sitting up without support

    When did your LO sit up by themselves?
    DS is 7 months on Friday and he is doing quite well but still falls over a bit. Should I be concerned?

    I wouldn't be worried yet. Ds1 didn't sit unsupported until around the time he was crawling, which was 9.5mo. Ds2 was much earlier at around 5mo (and started crawling at 6mo).

    Thanks! When he was at the doctor last she said not to be concerned until after 7 months. I was just starting to wonder cause he's seemed to have stopped improving with it

    Is he crawling? If not, you may find as his tummy & back muscles strengthen as he starts crawling he will be able to sit better.

    He's not crawling yet, he would love to be though! He spends a bit of time on his belly, if he's sitting up he slowly puts him self on his belly and tries to pull his knees up. He tried his arms then gives up on them and he ends up looking like he's trying to swim with out arms lol
