  • I just answered this question and you deleted it.

    Give him more tummy time. Babies need to strengthen their abdominal muscles before they can balance. When they push up for tummy time, it works to strengthen their abs.

  • Just leave him be. He will do it when ready. There is nothing you can do. My kids were around 7 months

  • Lay him on his belly on the carpet or a blanket and put toys around him that he has to reach for. Or lie on your back and put him, belly down, on your tummy. He will push up to get to your face. That was what I did because my baby didn't like tummy time at first.

  • My son had the same problem, he didn't start till he was 8 months. It could be a developmental delay. Now that's he older we are still a little bit behind he doesn't have a good core strength is what they said. The best thing you can do is work on it now here's a link that might be helpful:

    I really wish i would of been able to act quicker. My son is trying to build his core strength but he's almost 4
    good luck!
