I have a 4 month old should he be able to sit up by now and when should he be able to crawl?

I have a 4 month old should he be able to sit up by now and when should he be able to crawl?

Not so fast!: Most babies will sit up like little "buddhas" between six and nine months. Like all behaviors, there is lots of variability. Some babies bypass crawling altogether - and just start walking! i look for "cruising" - early walking by holding onto furniture around one year - and some form of crawling before then. Good luck with this little human. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

When will my baby be able to sit in a booster seat at the dinner table?

When will my baby be able to sit in a booster seat at the dinner table?

6 months: Your baby can join you at the table now (in a bouncy seat or carseat), but they won't be able to sit well in a high chair until at least 6 months of age. It'll be even longer before they no longer need a high chair and it depends on how tall they are and how tall your table is. ...Read more

When will my baby sit up by herself?

When will my baby sit up by herself?

5-7 months: To answer your question, we must first define what you mean by 'sit up by herself'. Most full term babies can be placed in a sitting position, and maintain it briefly, at 5- 6 months. Putting themselves into a seated position usually follows a month or two later. Preterm babies will generally be later, depending upon their gestional age. ...Read more

My 9 months old baby still has no balance to sit up is this normal is there any kind of exersise or way i can teach him dr said all babiesdevelop diff?

Needs further workup: Babies should be sitting with support by 4 months, and sitting without support by 6 months. Some variation is normal, but 3 months of delay is outside the realm that i'd consider understandable. Get a second opinion--muscular dystrophy and related disorders can manifest with these sorts of weaknesses at a young age. ...Read more

21 wks pregq. Baby kicks a lot when i lean forward. I do this a lot using laptop at work. I worry hes asking me 2stop dis cos kicks stop wen i sit up?

Kicking is good: Baby's kicking is a reassuring. However, babies have sleep time and awake time. When they are asleep, there will be no movement. Baby is well protected by amniotic fluid and its unlikely that that you could cause harm by leaning forward. Its more likely that your movement wakes baby up or puts baby in a position where the kicking is more obvious to you. Best wishes for your new child! ...Read more

Does putting your 3 month old baby to sit up in your arms while holding him affect his spine or maybe cause him to grow with hunch back?

Does putting your 3 month old baby to sit up in your arms while holding him affect his spine or maybe cause him to grow with hunch back?

No: As a parent, I can tell you that it is a much tougher job than being a doctor. Children do best with a healthy daily dose of love. Letting your child sit with you won't cause a spinal disorder or interfere with growth. Keep doing it. Keep asking questions, but try not to worry. ...Read more

Is it bad to put a 3 month old in a bouncer when he isnt able to sit alone?

No bouncy yet: It is still a bit premature to use a bouncy at 3 months. He needs additional strengthening of head/neck and abdominal muscles before use. Generally, this is pretty well established by 6 months if there are no developmental or health problems. ...Read more
