Until What Age Limit Can A New Child Sit?
Good afternoon, I would like to ask what is the age limit for a new child to be able to sit.nI have a stone first daughter who is 8 months and 3 weeks old, but until now my child has not been able to sit alone.nBut if it is helped to sit my child can and is enough to maintain the balance of her body so as not to fall, is it because my child is already able to crawl forward so that it hinders the process of being able to sit alone?nnThank you for the free time doctor.
Hello Sitiaisyah, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
The development of each child is different, at the age of 3 months to 4 months the baby can lift his own head, and the age of 3 to 5 months the baby should be able to sit but still be supported, and the age of 6 months can sit up by himself, because it can tense the muscles neck, spine, upper body. but there are also babies who can only sit without assistance until the age of 9 months.
You don't need to worry, if your child is currently 8 months old, he can't sit up on his own, because each child's development is different, as long as you can continue to train your child by:
often sit with your baby on your lap or with a support Show beautiful scenery and interesting toys, to stimulate and be motivated to sit when the child is sitting alone stimulate with toys that are raised up so that the child will be stimulated to reach them, and bones the supporting bone will be stronger. However, if you are very worried or if you have done all of that but until the age of 9 months your child cannot sit up on his own, you can consult a pediatrician.
Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
