Hi,



I believe ur baby is having delayed milestones. U can wait upto nine months for her to sit up, but walking may take as long as 15-18 months. Sometimes,this can also be due to "cerebral palsy", a condition of damage to the growing brain. It is a problem of muscle control, rather than bone. Suggest u consult a good pediatrician and get her evaluated regularly.
