Preemies and milestones: ladies, I need some help please.


My DS is 8 months old, 5.5 months adjusted. He was a 30 weeker. I am worried because he is not sitting up on his own yet. He is rolling around very well though. I know you are supposed to go by adjusted age and whatnot, but I'm a little concerned that he's not even where he should be for his adjusted age. When did your preemies sit up on their own? Just needing some reassurance.

About 8.5 months with any remote degree of stability - 9 months to be stable enough I'd be willing to move away to grab the TV remote from the other side of the sofa... that's for a 7 week early baby - the sitting's only happened really really recently.

She could babble a glass eye to sleep though - it's very much motor-skills related milestones she has this slight lag on.

On the other hand - I've spent a good couple of months encouraging her to roll from back to front with minimal success - so popped into the kitchen to unload the dishwasher while she was lying on the rug the other day (perfectly safe away from any dangers - joys of an immobile baby!), when I looked back in the room she was lying happily propped up on her elbows on her front with a "damn - busted" look on her face... sometimes you don't know what they're fully capable of!

My son has pretty much mastered rolling and turning over. But he is absolutely not even interested in trying to sit. He gets mad when I try to practice with him. And the few rare instances where I can get him to do it, he just falls right over. He has no balance at all :-/

We were about at least 9 months adjusted when she could do it, as long as she was engrossed in something!

We still aren't sitting. Our lo has been late with all her milestones so far. My cons has said we mustn't worry or compare her to other babies. Which I'm trying not to do! The important thing is that your baby is learning new skills, as ling as there is improvement you shouldn't worry.

Hope that helps.

My daughter is not far off 6 months(23 weeks),still has head lag not sitting not babbling and not rolling.
She isn't reaching for things yet or holding on to items either,but on the bright side she is a very happy smilely pleasant baby.

Oh yeah that "oh fuck what am I doing... oh hell I'm sitting... FACE PLANT" moment of realisation!

Thanks for all the feedback! It's always reassuring to hear from other mommies going thru the same issues
