Nathan is 4 months old. And has no interest In sitting unless he is eating. We sit him up most other times (with our help of course ) and all he does is kick and cry.
If we 'stand' him - hold him up so his feet are on a surface he will push up and stand. He even tries to walk. He's really good at it; but it worries me he's not even trying to sit. Should I be worrying or trying to help?

I'd just follow his lead! Babies know when they are ready to sit, stand, eat, etc and they'll let you know! My boys didn't sit well until about 6 months but some babies learn earlier and some learn later than that.

Do you have any baby books? The Dr. Sears Baby Book (I think that's the name) has good info.
