What is your child doing at 6 months old?

I'm fostering a 6 month old child and he's my first baby. He isn't sitting up and he can barely hold onto things. Is this normal? What was your child doing at 6 months old?

  • I remember mine holding onto objects and of course sitting up. But all children do it at their own pase. NO child is alike.

  • My youngest is 5 1/2 mos. He has been rolling for about 1 week and can't sit up yet. He can hold onto things, but still has hand/eye coordination problems. He's "chatting" quite a bit and moves around well in his walker. And everything goes in his mouth! Hope that helps. Tried to cover the basics.

  • At 6 months my daughter was sitting up, rolling over, passing toys from hand to hand, and babbling up a storm.

  • It not a problem if he isnt sitting up yet, he will probably start doing it soon. My son just started crawling around 6 months. He was sitting up at 6 months but sometimes wobbly.

  • I remember my 6 month old was sitting up but still unbalanced. she would fall back if i didn't watch her. she was holding onto toys and reaching for things. She started rolling over at 6 months. but she didn't really crawl until 7-8 months.

  • Every baby is different, it's not uncommon.
