When did your baby reach the sitting up milestone?

So I've read in the baby books that babies can sit up with a little help and have steady control of their necks around the 6 month mark. My little one can sit up for short periods of time with help but his head is still wobbly. The doctor said his head is on the little big side for his body.

So my question is, when was your baby able to sit up and be able to hold up their heads without wobbling? TIA! :yes:

Hi Jen,

I think my son is a few weeks younger than your's and he is still having trouble sitting up but can crawl!!!

My first born was sitting up by now but not crawling so I guess each child is very different.

Love Nicky's newest picture!!!!

We used the bumbo chair starting at around 3-4 months to help strengthen DD's posture, and she loved it. At that point she could hold up her head well, but couldn't sit up on her own.

ETA: That pic was taken a week shy of her 4 month mark.

We have a bumbo too! But when I put him in it, he leans forward!!! I guess he is not ready for it just yet.

Your daughter is so cute in her pink bumbo!!!!:love:

Ok, came home today and little boy is sitting up all by himself, I am sooo amazed. My parents also said he pulled himself to a standing position in the play yard so we have to drop that too and I guess the crib.

So, I guess I can say 7 months and a few days.

Wow, I feel like my son is behind. He's 10 months tomorrow and he can sit up by himself, but he can't pull himself up or put himself in the position unless I put him there. Is that bad?

my full term chubby kids were a good 8 months before they could do it.
This was bad for me because they all outgrew their infant car seat carriers @ 5 months so going to a restaurant was brutal.
They couldn't sit in a car seat and they could sit in a high chair :Push:
