Take the cushion off couch sit her down and put cushion on her lap .put some toys in front of her to play.also  keep her on her belly as much as you can .to play or watch tv. You need to build her upper body strength up.stop carrying her around ...she'll try harder to move and will eventually crawl wich is very important for her hips to crawl. She needs to gain strength that's all.do you have early intervention? Get it if you don't. Get some books on babies with ds there helpful. Ds kids do things at a slower pace than regular kids.
