Sitting up?
When is the usual time a infant is supposed to be sitting up?
I don't remember when my boys sat up for the first time un assisted, and my DD #1 did EVERYTHING early, im talking crawling @ 4 months, walking @ 7 months oi.... and with Beanie here, she sits for a few mins un assisted, but isn't sitting fully yet, and she's 7 months tomorrow :(

6-7months for most kids. A few seconds at nearly 7m is perfect. Spend a lot of time carrying her on your hip to develop her balance. Stand her on your lap and put her on her tummy to develop strength. She's on track.

Ds couldn't do it without a pillow to catch his inevitable fall until he was 9 months old. Coincidentally the same time he became interested in solids.

Re: Sitting up?
I think all kids do things at different times. DS started sitting on his own wihtout tipping at 5 months, but he didn't start crawling till 8, and he's almost 1 and nowhere near walking. That's his personality though. He likes to sit and play on his own (Mom leave me alone) so I think he was motivated to learn to sit on his own, but he crawls just fine, so he doesn't care about walking. Well I'm no help. I just like to talk about my baby I guess.

Re: Sitting up?
DS started everything early, but each kiddo is so different. I wouldn't be concerned as you say she is crawling backwards which is a much more difficult skill IMO. I agree with the pp- carry her on your hip to help with balance. :)

Re: Sitting up?
DD is just now perfecting her sitting (She's almost 8 months). I still don't trust her without a pillow behind her. She has not even attempted to crawl! She does this one arm pull thing. Looks tiring! Oh well... I don't mind. I'm going to miss my baby when she gets mobile.

Re: Sitting up?
My ds3 is around your LO age and he started sitting up at 5 months and crawling at 6 months. Now at 7 months he has learned how to get from crawling to a sitting position.

Every DC is different though.
