12 wk old active baby girl, wants to sit rather that lie down, is it OK for her back, and/or general health?
Supported: This is safe as long as she is propped in a way that she cannot fall over, such as strapped in a bouncy chair or secured in a boppy pillow made for such purposes! She might also enjoy supervised tummy time which will strengthen her neck and back. Since she's at the age when rolling starts, be mindful of surfaces from which she could fall. ...Read more
Is it ok to prop up my 10month old baby with a pillow or something at night if she has a cold? Will this cause everything to sit in her chest?

My baby is 11 months &still doesn't crawl or get up from laying position to sit .He just sits unsupported perfectly when I do put him is this normal?
Getting to a sit is : on average an 8-month milestone, pulling to a stand, then walking holding onto furniture is usually at 9- 11 months. Your pediatrician will check muscle tone, strength & reflexes & advise you if there is reason for concern.. You can fill out a developmental screen on firstsigns.org to take to the visit.
