5 Month Old Child Development?

Hello Mrs Chris,
Babies are expected to be able to stomach at the age of 3-5 months. Your baby is still at a reasonable age to start prone. At the age of 6-7 months, it is expected that he will be able to lie on his stomach and return to his original position and support his own neck when seated. After that the baby is expected to learn to sit and sit stably.
Mothers do not need to worry because motor development and intelligence are different for each child. Mothers can still provide stimulation, for example by giving interesting toys at a certain distance and letting them try to pick them up, giving praise and congratulations when the child succeeds, creating a safe and comfortable atmosphere for the child to learn to sit on his stomach, and turn the child over and leave it for 3-5 minutes. (tummy time).
You should consult a pediatrician if at the age of 9 months your baby cannot sit up.
