I think you should wait for some more time and not to worry much, it is normal for some babies to take long to take first step. My nephew is 8 months and doesn't want to even sit .. but its fine. Every child has his / her own pace for meeting milestones. My daughter had started walking when she was 1 yr and 1 month (13 months) and that was such a delight view .... so wait... Summer is approaching so now u can start giving him some floor time and let him explore around while sitting or making some support. You can try to spread his favorite toys at floor or bed few steps away from him and let him try to reach ...

Hi Thanu. My son is one year old and doesnt stand or attempts to walk either. He sits and moves around on his bottom!Do not stress yourself as most children reach milestones at their own pace. Indu has suggested a good way to encourage your son to move about. Try them and dont worry :)

Hi! I know it can be worrisome when kids don't do things that so called milestones suggest. I have one query, is your son carried or held on the lap for long periods. With my kids I found that if I carried them most of the time. they weren't very interested in trying to get around on their own. Also if you are still worried then you should have a chat with the pediatrician. Take care.
