my son can walk all over the place and has been for a few months. He can not go from laying down to sitting on his own. He doesn't crawl either so if ther is nothing around for him to pull up on ifhe falls he is stuck. I try to teach him everytime he is laying down how to sit up. For get coaching him to crawl I now try to treach him how to stand up from the sitting position. Very concerned about this!!! Please help with any advice you can give!!!

Stacy,
You are right to be concerned. He should be able to do these things by now. I encourage you to see a pediatric chiropractor (or osteopath). It is possible that there was a displacement during childbirth which is limiting his upper body strength. One or two adjustments by a chiro may prove more effective than physical therapy.

Good luck!!!

My 1 year old just started physical therapy for this same problem. I told my ped she wasn't sitting up from a laying down postion and she referred me to a program to get an evaluation done.
