Just getting worried... She won't crawl,roll,sit or anything... From day one she hatted tummy time and now she just lays there trying to eat her hands...
She tries sit up by pulling herself up but cries and cracks it cause she carnt.
I don't know if it's normal or if there is something wrong?
Thank you mummies :)

Give it time. She is only seven months of age and as Jodi said, most of those people that told you their kids did all that stuff at 7 months are nuts. My kids did not do all that by then. My daughter was sitting on her won and playing in a spot on the floor. She was crawling and so on. My son was unable to sit on own or crawl much at that age because he had so much extra weight on him to carry around. By 10 months he was not only crawling around he was walking around furniture. He watched other kids doing that and decided he would too! Each child is unique. You got to work more with your child if you want progress.

Input he on her tummy and she lifts her head to look around.
I have her under a play gym in fact I have two for her haha. I also put toys and things she likes infront and side just put of her reach so she can try to crawl or roll to them. I even lay down next to her or infront trying to get her to come over but still nothing...
Just really nothing seems to get her to really move or roll.

If she is on her tummy, she is she rolling over so she can lay there and look around? Or is she laying there lifting her head looking around?

You could try putting some interesting toys in front of her - it will force her to reach out and move around to try to reach the toy. Tummy time isn't just about laying your child on her tummy, but also using that time to interact with her to develop her skills.

Also, do you have some of the floor play gyms where she can lay there and play with the toys?

Yeah I put her on her tummy all the time... She rather lay there and look around and that's it.

And I highly doubt that everyone else's seven month olds are walking and talking. If that's what they all tell you then I think they are full of shit.

If she's not even rolling, I'd be starting to be a bit concerned. Regardless of her hating tummy time, have you been doing tummy time regularly?

That is the way we felt too but we have learned you can't compare one child to another. My friend's child walked at 7 months but never crawled. Be patient before you know it she will be into everything.

Our daughter didn't crawl until about two weeks before walking. when she did crawl she kept one leg straight and one bent but this was almost at one year. Now she wants to run or jump everywhere she goes.
