Cannot Sit Up Unaided

by Sheila
(Portsmouth)

My son is 12 months old and cannot sit up unaided. We have seen the pediatrician who sent our baby for blood tests to check for a chromosome disorder. I am in my 40's. I confirmed that my baby hasn't downsyndrome or muscular dystrophy. So, we are not sure what he has. Is there any one with a baby like mine who can't crawl or sit up at 1yr old? He eats well, his weight is normal. He also sleeps well and apart from colds and coughs now and then, he is healthy. Any suggestions about what I should do now?

Cannot Bring Herself Up To Sit

by Noune
(Perth Amboy, NJ)

My 15 months old cannot bring herself up to sit or stand. She turned when she was 7 months old. She sat by herself when she was 8 months old she walked on her own when she was 13 months.

Now... problem is she's 15 months old now but she CAN NOT bring herself up to sit. And she CAN NOT bring herself up to stand. What can I do to help her? How serious is this inability?

Not Sitting Up

by Lin
(Waldorf, MD)

My granddaughter is one now, but still not sitting up unaided. There were complications during pregnancy. The baby does not try to sit up on her own, crawl, or try to pull herself up. Even when I hold her up, she doesn't put weight on her legs. Should I be concerned? What do you propose I do now?
