Should I mind my own business

My sister in law has a baby 1 month younger then mine and he isn't even crawling yet. I think he doesn't get enough tummy time because they are always holding him. Should I tell her that's not a good thing to do ? Or should I just mind my own business?

    i know that your going threw my cousin did the same thing with there son and they would always hold him and never let him have tummy time and he was a year old before he started walking and i just kept my mouth shut cuz i knew if i said anything it would make them mad so i think you should just not say anything cuz you dont want them mad at you

    my daughter we 9 months when she started walking too and this little boy was 5 months and he wasnt even trying to roll or anything and so he never really ever learned how to do stuff on his own till her recently and not only that but he is 17 months old and still on a bottle so i get your frustration some other family members had put their opinion in and they got so mad the parents started yelling at them so i just stayed out of it and i have a daughter and a son and now the mom texts me all the time asking me questions about stuff and i tell her what she should do and she still gets mad so now i just dont really try anymore

      Leave it be. More likely than not they are worried about it. If she asks your opinion then tell her nicely. Kids do things at different ages. My four month old niece is rolling over while my six month old is not. Am I worried? A little, but she will get it. It seems to me chunkier babies have a harder time with some things as thinner ones.

        I wouldn't directly say anything but maybe schedule a playdate and encourage the babes to play on their tummy or on the floor so they can learn and explore together. My daughter is almost walking without help now, so I think a playdate would be the easiest way to help her/him.

          I wouldn't say anything. It's not hurting the baby for them to hold him and he'll catch up in his own time. All babies develop at different rates and parents parent differently.

            I wouldn't say anything either. Babies learn at different times. Some parents hold their babies more than others. I always gave Tristen lots of tummy time and time to play by himself, but he has always been pretty independent.

              My son is seven months and is not crawling yet, either. I would like to see him crawl but he would rather scoot and back scoot. He rolls all over the place as well but prefers to sit (with help) or stand (with help). Am I worried? No. I am not worried because all babies develop at different paces. While my son does some things now older babies can't do, some younger babies do things he is not yet doing. There may even be a medical reason why the baby is doing some milestones. That was the case with my kids. One has Downs and the other has a small heart condition and syndactyly.

              I would not be concerned with it. The child will eventually crawl and if he/she doesn't, than they will walk first.

              Yeah, Jonah just doesn't seem interested in it. We try to help him and he stiffens up. Lol
