My son has been sitting alone since five months, he started army crawling shortly thereafter and would go from flat on his stomach to sitting up all by himself at the same time...he began crawling on hands and knees about 3 weeks ago and is now standing around furniture! He's a little stinker and already gets into drawers and cupboards and pots and pans...he's soo curious and gets mad because he can stand up against stuff but has to figure out how to get back down now...But my older daughter didn't sit until 6 months...crawled on all four at 10 months and didn't walk until 15 mons. Each one is a little different and learn according to their own time!

My son started sitting up at 6 months, crawling at 7 months, & at 8 months he began pulling himself up on things. Now, at almost 9 months, he never sits still. He gets around really fast (along the couch, coffee table, etc). He is not scared of anything! It won't be long before he's walking on his own!

My daughter has been sitting up perfectly since she was 5 months old. Very early. She is JUST starting to crawl now at 8 1/2 months...but she pulls herself up to standing on everything she can. She loves walking around her little activity tables and playing with everything. She stands very well holding onto something. She would mush rather stand than crawl.

None of my 4 children sat up unaided before they were 9 months and infact 1of them walked before they could sit up my twins are 9 months one has been crawling since he was 7 1/2 months the other started last week they can both pull themselves to there knees, but i have heard of many children walking before they could sit, my daughter has a prob with her back so may not be able to do this but my twins are a prime exmple they do it when they want to and im in no rush to have 2 toddlng around my feet the crawling is bad enough lol

my baby girl ( 8 months) has been sitting up by herself since about 5 months...she can pull herself up into a standing position ( the other day i went to check on her during her nap time and found her stand up in her crib looking at me as i walked in the room ...she will also pull herself up and stand in the bath tub or anywhere else that she can find something to pull up on) she has been scooting around backwards for about a month now, just started to crawl forward on monday and is now crawling around everywhere!!

My son will be 9 months on the 16th of april. He has been sitting without support since 6.5 months, crawling since 7 months and is starting to stand alone at times already. my eldest sat at 6 months, crawled on 8, stood at 10 then got his first 6 teeth in 3 weeks and walked at 11.5. all babies are different. my youngest have no teeth yet either but at the rate he is going might walk before 10 months.
My 8 month old son has been sitting up unassisted for a few months now. He can stand for a few seconds unassisted, but has yet to take his first step. It looks like it will be any day now, though, as he has no fear and loves to "walk" while holding onto the couch, or coffee table, etc.

My son sits, crawls with his belly on the floor, and pulls up to stands (but only gets to his knees). He goes up on all fours to crawl, but he hasn't quite put it together yet. He still can't get to a sitting position on his own. I have tried to encourage him without pushing too much. He seems happy to be on all fours....

Yes! She just turned 9 months. She got herself back up to sitting for the first time about 4 weeks ago. Then she took a break. Now for the past week that's all she's doing! She'll lie down just so she can push herself back up to sitting! So cute! She also likes to pull herself up to standing if she can get a good grip on something, but no cruising (walking while holding on to stuff) yet.

Congrats on sitting up!!! My son turned 8 months a week ago. He has been sitting himself up for a few months now. He started crawling a month ago and now furniture walks everywhere. He's hard to keep up with!!! Enjoy the breaks now because once he starts moving you will be too!!!

My daughter could crawl before she sat up, she started when she was 7 months old and started sitting herself up very well at about 7 and a half months. now she will walk with support. your son probably does a lot of stuff when you think he's asleep, thats when my daughter started when she was in her crib supposedly taking a nap.

My son will be 9 months the 3rd of April, and he just started crawling on March 19th and at the same time he was able to sit himself up all the way..he was raising up and holding himself up with one hand but, until he started crawling he couldn't but now he will just push himself up all the time!
Elton's been sitting up quite steadily for a good month now (he just turned 8 mos yesterday).. he's army crawling. he pulled him self up randomly just 2 times on the edge of the couch (which is quite low, actually). he can hold himself up on the edge of the couch, but he does pull himself into his bouncy chair repeatedly after rolling right back out of it afterwards. he prefers walking though (while holding on to our fingers).

My son will pull himself to a seated position provided there is something that is easy for him to grab nearby and if you give him your fingers to hold and keep them at the right height he'll pull right up to a stand. He'll be 8months and the end of the month.

Our boy starting sitting by himself at 7 months, and by 7 1/2 he was crawling. At 8 months he could pull himself to his feet and now (9 months on April 9th) he can walk sideways along the couch. I go into him in the mornings and from naps and he's standing, peeping at me over his crib. I'm told he is slightly ahead in his movement ability.
