  • He held it up from birth. It was wobbly though. It didn't take long for him to really hold it though...I can't quite remember. The info is at home.

  • My son had a large head and a long slim neck, so it took him about 3 months....My daughter had a very short neck and held her head up right away...

  • He could hold it up from birth. He could fully hold it, no help at all by his 2 month bday. No wobbling at all :)

  • The boys it was about 3 months for them. My dd, though, she held it up about 2 hours after birth. Freaked my DH's aunt out too. She was like "Don't let her do that! She'll hurt herself." Of course, this would be one of his aunts that has NO children, so therefore knows everything about kids.
