No im not one of those moms who wants to push kids 24/7 on things if there not ready. All i am asking is for some advice on how to HELP my son.. He is almost 5 months old in 3 days.. He does tummy time, holds his head up now. He HATES laying on his back most of the time and tries on his own to lean forward when im holding him.. We dont own a Bumbo Seat.. The only thing i do is hold him while he is sitting down. What about crawling? both my girls crawled at 8 months i think. they are 4 and 6 now, cant remember thats why im asking questions! lol

Don't use infant seats. Carry him and hold him. Use slings and carriers. Babies learn to be strong in this way. Infant seats, swings, walkers, ect hurt development. If you carry your baby then babies don't have to have tummy time. The whole tummy time thing was invented because after the Back to Sleep campaign babies were spending huge amounts of time on their backs. Most of the rest of the time was being spent in seats. This was hurting develpment and in the extreme babies can have "container syndrome" a collection of developmental issues.
You don't need to help with the sitting and crawling as much as just holding him and playing with him.
