  • My boys sat up first but every child is different. :)

  • if she is trying to crawl her back is probably strong enough for sitting. you should look into a bumbo seat to help her learn to balance. my daughter loved hers!

  • My oldest crawled first, sat up 2nd. My 2nd and third sat up first and then learned to crawl! I think it depends on the baby.

  • It depends on the baby. My sons sat first but my grandson crawled first .

  • It really depends on the child. She may do both at roughly the same time! How fun for you and her!!

  • It does depend on the baby but typically babies will sit up first as it takes a lot of strength in the back to crawl. But no baby is the same. :)

    Congrats on the new milestone!

  • it depends. my son sat up first before he learned how to crawl.

  • They both came at about the same time for my dd, she was scooting around pretty good when she learned how to sit herself up then within a weeks she was crawling.
