Wondering How and When will your Baby Learn to Sit?

Initially, your baby will be able to sit with support. For that your baby’s neck muscles need to develop enough, which usually happens by about 3–4 months. From this time, your baby might be able to keep his or her head up.

Encouraging your baby to play lying on the tummy will help your baby learn to sit. Try to make your baby to look up by using noisy toys or by making sounds as this will strengthen the head and neck.

By 5 months, your baby might be able to sit by himself or herself without support for only moments at first, and then for about 30 seconds or more.

Your baby may be able to sit well without support for a longer period of time when he or she is about 6–9 months of age. At this point, your baby may be able to sit down from a standing position.
