  • ok so why is my answer voted down, someone asks a question. i answer truthfully. it's not an opinion or advice question and i didn't say anything is it jealousy or something cause i can't see any logic in voting down an answer about someone's child's personal development. seems kind of very childish

  • I could sit up my son at 4 months and he could support himself well. Six months before he could sit up all by himself.

  • My son could sit wobbly and support himself on his arms or by leaning forward for a few minutes when he was 4 months. By 5 months he could sit well unassisted. No leaning and not wobbly, and for more like 20 min at a time.

  • My first son it was around 6 1/2 months before he could sit up all by himself. My second it was about 6 months, which he has CS and I was told he wouldn't until he was about 1 !! :)

  • I think he could crawl before he sat unsupported. He was crawling, on his knees and tummy off the floor, at six months, and it was a few weeks after that when he was finally able to sit and I didn't have to worry about him falling. He was four months when he rolled over for the first time, tried to sit up, and started doing the military crawl.

  • Six months with both my kids they could sit up, if I sat them up, at seven months both of them could put themselves in a sitting position (from back or tummy to sitting)
