6 month milestones

Amelia had her 6 month check up this week. Her doctor said she's a happy, healthy little baby :-)
His only small concern was that she isn't sitting on her own yet. He recommended a physical therapist visit our house just to make sure her motor skills are OK. She sits well when propped up but can't do it herself yet.
How old were your babies when they sat by themselves? I'm not too worried and my doctor isn't either....He said "better to be safe than sorry" and I agree....

    My babes were around 7-8 months..My youngest seemed to go a little faster, but probably because I propped her up on the couch and she had to work those back muscles. She work with her. Sit on the floor behind her and sit her up. Once she has her balance, scoot away a tiny bit so she doesn't have constant support but you are right there if she starts to lean.

      My little one just started sitting up independently and she is almost 8 months. With my oldest, her pediatrician recommended the same thing because she only slept on one side and they were concerned. We took her to a physical therapist and they said get a bumbo seat so that she could work on strengthening her back..............I wouldn't spend the money on a physical therapist. If you work with her, she will get there on her own time.
