sitting up

any tips on how to get my five month old to sit up more? Also with a jumper or exersaucer why do you think she whines she does ok with it for a while but then wants out?

  • 5 months is still a little early to expect her to sit up. my 5 month old doesn't, and my toddler didn't at that age, either. and babies have a short attention span. after 10 minutes she'll want something new :)

  • Sit her on the floor with pillows around her, put a few toys around her. She'll topple over at first, but sit her back up. Do this several times a day. She'll get it, she may be alittle too young right now.

  • My son had no interest in sitting up! lol he was happy to roll all over the floor - he stared sitting up at 6.5 months. Try getting a bumbo seat - they're great, just be sure to keep baby supervised.
