  • My son started sitting by himself at 6 months and started crawling soon after. They happened almost simultaneously for us. But all kids are different!

  • My son was 7 months when he sat up by himself
    He sat up before he crawled,but then again,he only crawled for about a week before he was able to pull up and cruise. he was a roller.

  • I think my son was sitting up around 6 months..
    crawling and cruising/walking were closer together than sitting up and crawling, lol

  • My little girl just turned 7 months old and can sit alone until something catches her attention or excites her and then down she goes. She also doesn't seem to be interested in crawling at all. She would rather us hold her up so that she can stand. Seems like we might end up with one that walks and never crawls. All babies are different though. My little sisters little boy was crawling everywhere by 7 months. It's hard not to compare them and wonder why she isn't getting going but they got little minds of their own. I know my little punkin' is NOT gonna do anything until she is good and ready! Lol. I think she might get just a tiny bit of that from me!!

  • the day she turned 5 months
