  • Well, I guess I should say my son is 28 months. The only way he can go from a laying down position to sitting up is by rolling over onto his tummy and getting up from there. Shouldn't he be able to go from laying on his back to sitting up without rolling over by now?

  • I was going to say when they are ready, but seeing your child is 28 months...I would talk to the doctor about it. That is pretty late.

  • Could be just a learned behavior....but I'd ask his pedi just to be sure :)
