My son will be 6 1/2 mths. old in a couple of days and he has absolutely no urge to sit up. I've been working w/him, and when he on his back, he'll try to sit up, but when you put him in a sitting position, he'll throw himself back and don't want anything to do w/it. When he's sitting in his bumbo seat, bouncer, etc. he's fine, but he won't do it on his own. He doesn't go for his next check-up until next month, and I'll ask them, but I figured I'd throw this out there, to see if anyone else is having the same problem. I know every baby is different, but this somewhat concerns me because my daughter (his big sis) was sitting up a little before she turned 6 mths. when she was a baby. And, I know some babies who've sat up earlier than that. Please let me know.
