  • My son is 5 months and can't sit all the way up on his own yet but he sits really well when supported. I just started putting him in the shopping cart seat but we have one of those covers that help him sit up. He does really well it in. As long as she's not toppling over it's fine!

  • No i dont! i did the same thing with my daughter!! she was too big for her carrier! Check into one of those shopping cart covers.

  • No, it's fine. Although, I would suggest wearing her in a carrier of some type. It keeps your hands free and she'd be a lot safer then in the cart.

  • Since our pediatrician told us to not let a baby sit up for longer than 1-2 minutes until its at least 10 months old, yeah i think its wrong.

    Their spine is way too weak until then to carry their weight.
    Every good orthopedist will tell you the same.

  • It sound okay. Not all babies sit alone that early.

    Mine were sitting on their own at 4 months. (I can't even imagine stopping them from sitting once they started) But they were early in just about everything.....

  • Just to let all of you know-we took our 6 month old daughter to the doctor for a check up. She told us it was perfectly okay to let her sit in the seat in the buggy. Considering the fact of how well she holds herself up. But thanks for your advice and input. Have a great day!!!
