  • it depends on the baby. Some can crawl, some sit unassisted, some might even crawl(?). Can eat baby food. Really, it varies. My DD just turned 8 months and only two weeks ago began crawling and only maybe a little over a month ago learned to sit unassisted. There's not set time for anything. Usually the age range is just an average.

  • Sitting, starting to craw, maby starting to pull up on stuff, cooing alot, saying mama, dada, baba, or other words that you have been teaching her/him!

  • Imitating sounds but no true words (sounds used to mean specific things each time they are said)
    Rolling over in both directions
    Sitting wtihout support - but not able to get to sitting position without help
    Putting everything in his mouth
    Passing objects from hand to hand
    May be getting up on hands and knees, a few may be crawling

  • It's honestly different for every child. Which, I know, isn't much help. However, every child develops differently and takes the next milestones at different times.
