  • My daughter has been trying since three months. She's four months now and it always looks like she's doing situps. She still sits with support, but any day now she will be sitting on her own.

  • My son is 4 months and he tries like crazy to sit up. But he can't do it on his own yet. I'm not worried about it. All babies are different. My daughter started walking at 9 1/2 months. ( I hope my son waits till' he's about 2 years, lol )

  • My DD was about 11 weeks when she started wanting to sit up. I would have her grab my fingers and she would pull herself up to sitting. She just started rolling over and she scooted backwards on her mat the other day.
    Every baby is different but if he shows interest then work with him. I even taught her Grandmas how to help reach her milestones and they get so excited. Its good exercise for everyone.
