Am I doing something wrong?

My son recently turned 9 months hes still not crawling which I'm not really concerned about but hes also not sitting up on his own which I am concerned about. Is there something I can do to help him with these things or something I'm doing wrong. I'm a FTM and I really dont want him to be at a disadvantage or be behind if I can help him

  • I doubt he is delayed, but your pedi will be a better judge. My DS ( born 6/14) is only just starting to army crawl, and he hasn't gotten into sitting position on his own yet. He can sit up to play with toys if I put him on the floor. I got him a sit-to-s


  • Kids all kinda develop at their own pace. It's a good idea to mention any concerns you have to your pedi, but it doesn't sound completely outrageous to me that he's not sitting up or crawling. My friend had her son the day after I had Liv. Her son ha
