is it normal if a baby doesnt sit up by 9 mos?

my daughter will be 9 months January 5th 2011..
She is still not sitting up yet. She isnt even trying. We are thinking she is just lazy and not ready but its hard not to compare the developments between your children. and wonder is this normal?? My oldest was sitting up by 6 months.. when should i worry?? she is a heavy baby loves to eat!! lol size 4 diapers lol
she is pushing up on all 4s and trying to crawl starting to scoot around with no problem but just doesnt want to sit up. when we sit her up ourselves, she stays for a bit then pushes her self down. =(

  • I dont think a 9 month old can be lazy. Ask your doc if you are worried. Every baby is different.

  • I would speak with your PED. All babies develop differently. In the mean time, I would have her sit even if supported to get the practice. I know its hard not to worry! Good luck to you!
