Q.

Six months old and not sitting

Dear Dr,

My friend and her husband are concerned that their second baby boy of six months is not sitting yet. He was born after a 12 year wait when she was in her 40''s. She had a healthy normal pregnancy, a booked C section in a private hospital and she was under a gynae and has a paed for her son. He is a beautiful baby, gurgles, laughs and talks all the time. I think he is perfectly normal and will sit in his own time. (They are both professionals and I think want babies to follow milestones on que!)
I would be grateful for your opinion.

There does not appear to be any need for concern as your friend's baby seems quite healthy and happy.Not all babies sit at 6 months and many only learn to do so by 7 months.
