This is a great resource to find out if your child is around the right age for different milestones. Please keep in mind, all children develop at different rates. This is a guide ONLY, but I thought it could be helpful.

My daughter is 9 months old and is not crawling...She also can not go from laying down to sitting up on her own yet. she does say dada and mama and she says nunu to nurse along with signing "Milk". should i be worried that she still only sits there?

Thank you! This is so very helpful and encouraging :)
at the same time, i still think that you shouldn't rush your child if they're not ready to walk, crawl, etc. I remember when my son started walking, my husband and I called that day the start of the end ;)

You should start usually around 4-6 months. Their digestive system isn't fully developed until almost half their one year bday. Try www.babycenter.com and look up introducing solid food for more info.

www.myangelhugs.com keeps your kids head from bobbing while asleep, promotes good posture, eliminates neck cramping, and reduces outside noise. Helps my child sleep like an angel without me having to reach back and adjust her head when she falls asleep while I'm driving. We are all guilty of trying to adjust our childrens heads while in the car seat as we drive which is not very safe. This product eliminates having to keep adjusting their heads. It simply wraps around the child's head and holds it in place . Made of cuddly soft fashionable fabric and premium quality memory foam. Truly Innovative.

The floor is the safest place as there is no place for a baby to fall down to off the floor.
You can do things like roll around on the bed.
Hold the baby on your chest for tummy time.
You can have the 10 year old do stuff like crawl around etc on the floor.

However, moving and going is natural progression and I don't know that a baby needs to see someone do it, to be able to mimic to do it.

There is a dity I sang to get my youngest comfortable and loving to roll over.
Roll me Over in the cover, roll me over, lay me down, do it again.
Anyway we would sing this while I held him in my arms and rolled over and over on the bed.

I might make up a short repetitive song to use and offer only for tummy time. Start the song as you are gently rolling Baby onto tummy so that it's a rolling game you two play. Sing! Sing! Sing! And roll back and forth ever so gently. Fun time becomes rolling tummy time. Rolling is fun time. With practice, tummy time becomes fun time with you, song, and then later into a special toy that's only for tummy time. Expect it to take time and lots of patient repetition. Happy singing, rolling, tummy-ing!

As much as everyyybody was worried about her crawling by 7 months now shes just everywhere! The day she started crawling she also tried pulling herself up & im thinking to myself, shes going to be taking off. It will all happen when the time is right :)

I wanted my son to crawl so at 9 mos I put him on floor in his sitting position he liked so much. I then put all his fav toys in semi circle a distance from him and left the room. Peeked to watch and he crawled to get them and crawled constantly from that day on. I was shocked! I decided that I must have unintentionally been meeting my first child's needs without his having to work to get what he wanted. Hope my experience might be helpful to someone else.

Tummy time doesn't always have to be on the floor. Put your baby on your chest while you are reclining or laying down. Put the baby's arms/hands under his/her chest. The goal of tummy time.is for them to push up to build.muscles. :)

It is not as necessary as they say-she may not be ready...I know this is old-but for future reference. For my child I lay on the ground with him and make silly faces and turn on his toys-plus he loves when his big sis is on the floor with him
