  • Most of my kids were sitting by about 4 months, scooting around 5 months, crawling about 6 months, pulling up about 6-7 months, walking alone (well, toddling) 9-10 months. My youngest right now is 6 months and she's crawling, pulling up on things, cruising along the furniture, walking holding onto our fingers, trying to balance and stand on her own....stinker!! lol Yes, all babies will develop on their own timeline. Don't worry if yours isn't exactly where you see others. I'm sure she is right where she's supposed to be. :)

  • My daughter is 7 months. She started sitting up alone about 6 months but just recently started sitting for long periods of time. (She does still topple over every once in a while). She's still not crawling but she loves to stand if we stand her up. Just remember- all babies are different!

  • My dd is 6months and she can sit up for just a minute or 2 alone. So we use the boppy pillow. When shes on her tummy she can scoot back a few inches but this just started. She rolls from her tummy to back but not back to tummy yet. thats about it. :)
