  • mine started at 5 months, and it took about 3 weeks to get really good at it.
    i think 6 months is average, so your lo is right on schedule : )
    his muscles will be getting stronger and stronger.
    i didn't do anything other than put my kids on the floor a lot.

  • My son was almost 9 months. He was a challenge to learn to sit. All you can do is practice and let them have lots of floor time to learn. It will happen, just know that they have their own time table of things.
    good luck to you!

  • my dd was 4 months. I know, crazy freakin early lol. we spent a lot of time in the floor. she would sit and I would support her back at first with her hands on the floor and after doing that for a few weeks her muscles got super strong and she was able to sit up more and more without my help.
