  • I think you may be a little over zealous on what it means for a baby to try to sit up. Of course if you prop her up with a pillow she can sit up. I highly doubt she sits herself up on her own.

  • my son pulls himself up if i hold his hands to a sitting position he's 3 months and of course is a supported sitter i think he'll be sitting up on his own by 5 months
