TBH if he's happy then he'll sit when he's genuinely ready, and it's also a sign of readiness for solids so perhaps he just needs to take it all a bit steadier? Nowt wrong with that, of course!! And a darn sight easier than dd4 who thought she was 6wks older than she was for the whole of her first year...

That's what having older siblings will do for you :roll: My youngest sister was always doing everything much much earlier than the rest of us...

Like sitting up and nicking food at 4&1/2m, perfect asymmetric pattern crawling at 5m and walking at 9&1/2m? :roll:

How many hours each day does he wear his boots for? Rhys is in his 23/7 and it's a major problem for him. His ability to flip only developed about a month ago because he had to figure out how to flip his body on a huge pivot point attached to his feet. The problem with sitting is that he can't get his legs into the spread position with feet close together due to the bar. I know you said Dan doesn't wear a bar, but the extra weight of the boots might just mean he has to learn a bit more than other babies.

Agree that he will do it when he's ready.

I think the boots might be holding him back a bit he has them on most of the time he is awake. but from reading the post here and chatting to me nct crowd today I haven't done much to encourage it by always laying him down on the floor, but he is good at rolling so some you lose some you win!

Heh I was similar with Isabelle - I didn't exaclty help her by not giving her the opportunities to sit up...

Our friends had a cushion thing that went round them that they were forever popping their son in and lo and behold he sat very early on :)

my son didn't sit confidently until 9 months. no signs of crawling yet. although today he made a couple of attempts to go into crawling position. but then fell flat on his face and rolled over a few times. some babies are quick and some a bit slower. i think my son will be slow
