    When did your baby sit unaided?

    Just a poll to find out when other babies sat unaided. i.e they didn't need propping up with pillows etc. Remember all babies are different there is no right or wrong answer this is just a fun poll.

    Kameron had just turned 6mths when he first sat unaided. I had to put him there but he kept his balance and even played.

    He sat up all by himself from laying down not until he was 1yr and 2 weeks old.

    Just thought I would cast a vote. Lachlan has just turned 4 months and 4 days. He is able to sit unassisted for maybe 20 seconds...

    Lachie is much more a happy camper if he is in the sitting position aswell, I think he is a nosy parker... ( like his mum)...

    My little itty bitty bundle of joy is growing up..... :smt022

    <--- Is going to need therapy shortly.... why do they have to grow up????

    Ps..... Great choice in names AstroLady...

    Beautiful Adelaide!

    Olivia has just started doing this all by herself over the past few weeks, so bang on 6 months I'd say........she balances herself by leaning with her hands on her legs at first and then sits up properly and looks round and looks so proud of herself!

    Liam has been sitting straight back unaided for a week! but if some toy catches his eye he leaps forward to lay and roll over to it. He will happily sit for about 20 minutes playing with the triangle toy or his Fisher Price classical chorus piano. He is 6 months and two weeks.

    My little girl has been sittng for longer periods this last week. Also if she has a toy that catches her attention she topples over, but we get about 15 minutes of sitting, and she can sit all by herself on the potty.

    She just turned 7mths yesterday.

    Aidyn has been sitting with a straight back for a couple of weeks now. However he is still more likely to lean too far back and topple over, than to sit there balanced for ages.

    When it happened

    Soon after I left that message, I decided to sit my baby on the ground when we had visitors. I usually would only put her for short stints or support her, but this time I left her. She sat, and sat, and sat and over an hour later I picked her up. She has been sitting ever since!

    Like everything that they do, they seem to just suddenly do it out of the blue.

    They are so much more content when they can sit... until they want to move more and get frustrated again.

    Lachlan is pushing 8 months and still wont sit up. Everytime i sit him on the floor he pushes his butt out from under himself lmao.

    It was very bizzare, but just after I posted here this morning, my cousin came over with her daughter (Tahlia) who is two weeks older than Aidyn. She has been sitting very well for some time now, and for the first time Aidyn sat up without me needing to catch him for at least 10 mins!! I was amazed!! Maybe it was because Tahlia was doing it, or maybe it was just because he had a reason to want to try harder, cause if he could sit up with her it meant he could talk to her and grab at her, LOL!
