my son if 5months old and when i lay him on the floor he tries to sit up. but when i kinda sit him up against a pillow or in his highchair he scoots forward on his butt and leans back.

My daughter was sitting by herself unassisted by 6 months, at about 5.5 months i still had a pillow behind her, then from 6 she was doing it well enough i gave up on the pillow

My baby girl is 2 months and i was planning on getting her the bumboo that you can get from target or walmart. I heard they are great for helping them sit up.

my daughter is almost 3 months and can sit herself up from an inclined postion (like on a pillow or her boppy). if we lay her on the floor she tries soo hard to sit up but hasnt yet.

My daughter is 13 weeks and she can sit up unassisted... She cant sit herself up from a laying position but if I sit her up she stays by herself... It just depends on the child tho...

My son did not sit good on his own until he was about 7 months old. Jessica is right, it all depends on the child. I used the boppy pillow and that seemed to work great.

i believe it all depends on the child. He'll sit up on his own when hes ready to. Just give him time.
