Sitting up, unassisted

When did your baby(s) start sitting up unassisted, like sitting while you're holding his hands or sitting with a boppie around his waist

  • Mine were sitting totally unassisted at 4 and 5 months (5 months was the youngest and he was 4 months adjusted)

    No hands, no boppy, no pillows...all them.

  • My baby could sit with the boppy at around 3.5 months... she could sit without any support at all at 4.5 months. She couldn't actually get her self in the sitting up position until closer to 7 months. :)

  • Babies vary widely with this kind of stuff. Mine could sit with the boppy around 4.5 and could sit unassisted around 5.5. She didn't actually get herself into the sitting position until around 8 mo...and then she learned to crawl, climb and pull herself to standing all within a couple of weeks. Whoa that happened fast!

  • My DS could sit with a boppy or other support at about 5 months. He's 7 months now and still can't sit by himself.

  • Eva really didn't sit up totally by herself till about 7 months, she could sit tripod and assisted at about 5 months, but really she didn't start sitting by herself till she started crawling, which was about 7 months, then she went right into pulling herself up and walking along furniture
