My 7 month old

My son is 7 months old he is not walking or crawling yet, he is not sitting by himself yet either? he sits good with support. and he will set by himself and lean forward when he does sit by himself( falls over) then a few minutes later he is rolling a round.
Should he be sitting and even trying to crawl yet?
Advice any one:)

  • Just give him some more time. He'll get it and then you'll wish that you hadnt rushed him! My son is 8 months and isnt crawling or walking either. He scoots around very well and gets where he wants to go that way, but he's not up and on his knees quite yet. He tries but hes just not quite there. At least for now I can keep track of him!

  • Remember what everyone says "all babies are different" my baby started to fully crawl at 7 months. I agree with the other moms give him a little bit of time, if you are still concerned talk to your ped. Enjoy your baby momma :)

  • My 7 month old is exactly the same way. She does scoot pretty far if she is on her back, but she hates being on her stomach. She has acid relux, and I think it hurts her to be on her stomach too long. Dont worry. Babies develop at different times, at their own pace. My ped told me my daughter is doing very well as far as development goes, and is very alert and babbling all the time and she is saying mama and dada.

  • all babies go at their own pace, just give him time and he will do it when he is comfortable and ready to do it. My son is 5months old and rolls around and is trying to crawl but he doesnt sit by himself yet just supported.
