  • My kids could almost sit up by themselves. They could hold up their heads by themselves when they were around 2 months old. My kids were just big, so they could do quite a bit, like roll over and play with toys!

  • My youngest baby is 5 months and 4 days old. He has been rolling from his back to his stomach for a month, but he still can't roll himself back over. That's the opposite of my other two, they rolled front to back first. He can sit for a few minutes if I prop him up and help him get balanced. He grabs at everything and tries to put it in his mouth. He is fascinated by food but I'm waiting until 6 months to feed him solid food. He squeals and laughs a lot, doesn't babble or make many sounds other than that. My older kids were slow when it came to speaking, so I'm not sure what's normal there. He doesn't have any teeth. He usually sleeps through the night, and when he does wake up I just put his pacifier back in his mouth and he goes right back to sleep. I don't know what else.

  • he was rolling wenn both ways, could sit unsupported for long periods of time, could stand holding onto things, and at 5.5 months he began army crawling.
