    Finn does but I noticed the other babies in my NCT group of the same age don't. So corrected your baba would be younger than them? I wouldnt worry.

    Aww hugs Donna! Im sure Harleys just fine. they are all so so different, and he will do it when he's ready! :D Layla did it VERY early, like a month or so old, but she hates sitting/laying down so they just have different preferences I guess xxxxxxx

    my LO has always done this, but isn't doing other stuff younger babies are. LO in work wasn't at about 11 months, so HV kept an eye, then all of a sudden like someone said, just started doing it ?
    Does he have a standing toy/jumperoo/door swing or similar so he can feel his legs?

    Byron chose to sit about 6 and a half months after attending a class with older babies. He has only recently (past couple of weeks) got into trying to stand and doesn't pull himself up or anything like that. He's not crawling at all.

    Don't worry, your baby's probably playing a little bit of catch up anyway and they do thinks at really variable times.
