How can you teach an 11-month old to sit up?

My 11 month daughter has been cruising for a while and has begun to walk. But she's not able to get into a sitting position by herself.

  • I think she will figure it out too, but have you run this by your pediatrician?

  • What do you mean? If she is standing she can't squat to sit down?

  • I also find that a little odd. My son could get into a sit as soon as he started crawling well at 6 months. Im sure shes probubly ok if shes doing her other skills fine. Just ask your pedi at her 12 month well child check.
