1 doctor agrees

In brief: 2-4 months

By two months, most babies can hold their head pretty steady.
By four months, they should have complete head control and good solid strength.

In brief: 4 months

Babies usually have "full head control" about 4 months of age.
When a 4 month old if pulled up into a sitting position, he/she can usually hold the head steady, or even "help" by flexing his neck as he sits up.
