    This site tells about growth milestones. Make sure to play with him. It may motivate him to move.

  • Six month olds are not lazy. Your child may be delayed in some of his milestones (you would have to check with his pedi) but babies aren't lazy. Try lying on the floor with him to help make tummy time more fun.

  • If he is a smiling happy baby, I would not worry too much. My daughter by six months was not doing any of these things except sitting and by seven months she was crawling. They all develop at their own rate. If you are really concerned, talk to your doctor at his six month well-baby check-up.

  • My son is 9 months old and still refuses to hold his bottle on his own. He will hold once in awhile.
