make baby sit up? SquirrelyMom Due May 20 (girl); 1 child; Burlington, Ontario 1386 posts

Or should I let her do it when she is ready? My mom said I should be sitting her up and putting pillows around her for when she falls over. She is still unsteady and wobbly but I do have her sit in her bouncy chair sometimes and in her highchair. Should I just let her play on her tummy and back? Or should I be propping her up regularly? Will it delay her a lot if I let her sit up on her own?

Unless she's like 8 months jut let her play and shell build those muscles. I don't force dd to do anything (both of my dds actually) and they've developed just fine.

How old? Just set her up and put her hands in front of her with her legs spread for support. You don't have to do it all the time, just for fun every now and then.

In a post like 2 weeks ago she said she was 7 months.

yeah sorry she is 7 months and will be 8 in 10 days. I try propping her up here and there like in the frog position, i sit her in my lap and she isn't too bad sometimes but I know she still has balance issues. She isn't crawling yet either but is good at rolling around to reach her toys.

I can't tell if she is interested in sitting up, but she does pull her head and neck up in a lying down position ( looks like she is doing a crunch ) and sometimes she pulls forward in her bouncy chair more in a sitting upright position because those chairs are reclined somewhat. I just don't know if sitting is harder to master on their own than say, crawling where you can just give them floor time to practice it.

Oh, then yeah, for sure start guiding her a bit more. It only took my LO a week or so to master after we started doing what I mentioned and he was about the same age.
