  • My daughter did at 3 months, but all babies are different. They do things at different times.

  • One of my twin boys sat up at 7 months and the other is just staring at 8 1/2 months. I do not remember my other kids

  • By 6 months, about half can sit without support. That means that half can't yet and some could before then.

  • My son is 6 mos. and he can almost sit without support. kinda like a tripod. Sometimes he still tips over.

  • I think my son could around 4 months - he was crawling by 6 months but I believe this was earlier than most

  • At 6 months my son could sit unsupported (well, actually, supporting himself - he'd put his hands in front of him like a tripod, otherwise his big noggin would make him fall over), but he didn't start pushing himself into a sitting position until 10 months.
