  • My son didn't sit on his own until about 8 to 9 months of age. But, he's a tall boy. Maybe yours will be sooner.

  • Mine started late, too. about 8 months. He is chubby and kept rolling onto his side. He got it, though. He'll be a year old and is right on track.

  • My daughter started last month. She is 9 months now. It is normal for babies to start sitting up form 6-12 months.

  • If you want your baby to sit up go buy a bumbo chair. They are amazing. As long as your baby can hold their head up on their own they can sit in this chair. Here is a link so you know what it looks like: But you can get them at Babies R Us too.
