My LO is 7 n half months n she is still not sitting on her own. Should I be worried??

She rolls over and crawls around very well.. rest all her development is very good.. should i be worried or is it normal like i know all kids are different.. anyone going through same situation??

    My daughter started to sit up at 6 months. I think your baby is fine. Like you said all babies are different. Some just get going earlier than others. Have you tried propping her up or putting her in a seat to help?

    Now if we make her sit in sitting position she stays in sitting position for few seconds.. or sometimes she stays sitting with some support holding something when we make her sit but doesn’t sit by herself

    Sounds to me like she’s progressing just fine. I don’t think you have anything to worry about since she can sit for a few seconds with/without support. If she was still showing no ability at all I would be worried too. My daughter was sitting up but I had to put her in the sitting position it wasn’t until she was able to pull herself up around 9/10 months did she starting sitting without assistance. Now she’s 1 and trying to learn to walk while all the baby’s born around her are full on walking. Just keep assisting her with building her little muscles for a few minutes everyday and before you know it she’ll be there.

    My son is eight months and really only just recently started sitting on his own without falling over! I think you’re totally right - all babies progress at different rates. I’ve really liked the Instagram account @candokiddo for activities and advice on all things baby development. She’s an occupational therapist, and has really easy ideas for activities that help little ones with developing certain skills. Plus, she has a really reassuring, laid-back perspective that is super helpful when you’re stressed that your baby is behind or you’re not doing something right! I definitely recommend checking her out!
