  • my lil guy will be 4 months on monday :)
    as to when they sit up totally alone. right now he can sit up with a hand on the small of his back, or on the couch for about 5 mins before he slides off to one side. my daughter didn't sit totally on her own til she was about 6 months old (no one holding her, nothing at all behind her)

  • My son was pretty wobbly then. Probably by 6 months or so.

  • My son did. Every baby develops at his or her own pace :)

  • My dd wil be 4 months on the 24th and she can sit up if I help her, but not on her own. I think 6 months is probably more the average age...

  • My daughter didn't sit up independently until she was almost 8 months old.
