  • what you heard is a crock, my first child didnt start sitting untill 9 months and he is perfectly fine, and my second son is 10 months and he just and I mean just barley started to sit on his own, people just go by what there kids do or there Dr.s opinion, but the reality all babies grow diffrentley, I wouldn't worry about it.

  • If a child isn't meeting developmental milestones then it is called developmental delays. It is known that if a child gets help as soon as possible that child stand the best chance at catching up and doing the best they are able to do.

    If you son doesn't sit up and isn't doing other things his doctor may want him evaluated. If he is found to have delays he may need physical, occupational, or speech therapy. In most states these services are free until the child is 3 and may be done in your home if you so desire, saving you and your child from having to go to appointments.

    I had a son with developmental delays and early intervention really helped.
