Can A 6-month-old Baby Be In A Seat When Riding A Motorcycle?
Good night, my child is 6 months old, can already lie down on his stomach and turn his body backwards, but still cannot sit independently. Is it okay when riding a motorcycle, he is in a stand alone in the middle between me and my husband, without a sling? Because he is calmer, when using a sling he is more fussy. The trip is quite long usually 30-45 minutes. Thank you
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The conditions of growth and development of children can be seen from several parameters, such as height, weight, body, head circumference, sensory ability, fine motor development and gross motor skills. This can be seen starting from the child's ability to hold things, play with the environment, begin to turn toward calls or sounds, can move things with his own hands, likes to put things in his mouth, can start sitting alone, crawling, until walk and run.
In the motor development of a six-month-old child, one of them is the child begins to learn to be able to sit independently. But not every child has the same pace of learning, this can happen faster or slower. If indeed you find a condition of developmental delay you should consult a pediatrician regarding further examination and management.
We recommend that for when driving, make sure the method is safe for children and yourself. It would be better if you can use a sling that has a strap on you or a sling with a tight belt that fits your child. There is a significant risk of falling if you let your child sit alone, even though the sitting position is in the middle of you and your husband.
Hopefully this information can help you,
