  • If you work with them then probably between 4-6 months. If not then probably between 6-10 months. My daughter started at 4 months.

  • My son can sit up, with the boppy attached to him. He is 4 months old. I would say by the time he is 5 months, he may start sitting up by himself, but I'm not sure.

  • My son didn't sit up by himself until he was 7 months old. I was always freaking out about it, but his doctor said they do it when they're ready. He took forever to crawl and walk, too.
