Crawling before sitting?

My DS just turned 5 mo & has just started crawling... but he can't sit up on his own yet. He has been scooting for a month about but is now hands & knees crawling. DS1 crawled really young too- about the same age, but started sitting on his own a couple wks before. DS2 can only sit on his own for about 20-30 seconds. Does it seem weird that he is crawling before sitting? I thought that babies were *supposed* to sit first.

Kayli,
My DS crawled at 8 mos but did not sit up until 9 1/2 mos so it is entirely possible! I thought babies were supossed to sit first too but apparently this is normal too!

Just wanted to add that *crawling* is wonderful! It's cross lateral movement help to connect both sides of the brain, improving learning in all areas! Big brain food, crawling is!

Very true! I'm excited & happy... just a bit surprised! He's sooo mellow I thought it'd be a while

I just wanted to let you know that my sister is in the same boat. Her DD is crawling, but not so steady with sitting. She has no interest in sitting still. Why would she when she can move around!?!

I think it's great! Babies on the move are so much fun.
