Schedule Check-up: Your 3 mos old "can't hold neck". By age 2 mos, 75 % of infants can lift their head to a 45 degree angle and by age 3 mos, 75 % can lift head to 90 degrees. Sitting with a steady head is achieved between ages 2-4 mos. It is important to see your pediatrician at the recommended baby checks to ensure development occurs normally. If your baby has not had the 2 mos check, do so now. Next is at 4 mos.
