Not sitting up yet...is that "ok"?

This is going to sound silly Im sure...but Im gauging DD #2 by what my first daughter did at her age.

My little one is almost 6 months, and she can roll from back to belly (and belly to back), reach out and grab things well, has strong arms and legs but isn't the least bit interested in sitting up yet.
DD #1 sat up independently around 4.8 months....

Is that, OK? Thats shes not sitting up yet????

My DS wasn't able to sit up until 8mo. He was also behind his older brother.

I wouldn't worry. My oldest didn't sit up unassisted until he was nearly 11 months old. He didn't sit until he could crawl. My youngest sat up around 7 months.

I agree with all pp's. DD1 didn't sit up until 7 or 8 months. DD2 is almost 6 months and is doing just what your daughter is. Perfectly normal. And I think <5 months is really early.

DS will be 6 mo on the 10th & isn't sitting up yet. He's trying, but always rolls over after about 10 secs. If I remember correctly my daughters were more like 7-8 months before they were confident sitter uppers.
