    When did your baby start to sit up/crawl/stand by himself?

    hi! I have a 7month old son who loves to sit up unassisted. However, in order for him to enjoy the view, i have to help him pull himself up to sitting position by offering my hands. Only then he would pull himself up. My friend's LO who is two weeks younger than mine is already sitting up by himself, crawling and standing (with support from rails/furniture). I'm getting worried. He is 9+kg and is 70cm long. Does weight matter? When did your LO start to sit/craw/stand by himself?
    Liamsmommee responded:
    My LO is a lil over 6 months old. He learned to Stand and kinda walk before learning to sit or crawl. He is just barely starting to crawl. As far as sitting, my LO is like yours. He wont sit on his own unless that is the way he fell on his butt or if i place him like that, otherwise he wont do it on his own.
