What Age Can A Baby Sit Alone?
After being taught to sit, how long can he sit alone?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, babies will begin to learn to sit at the age of 4-7 months. At this age babies are usually not able to get up and sit alone, but babies begin to learn to sit with leaning / supported. Between the ages of 6-8 months, babies will be able to sit alone without the need to be supported again and at the age of 8-9 months before the baby will learn to get up and sit alone from a lying down position or stomach.
Every baby has its own motor development speed, so it cannot be compared to one baby with another baby. But babies are normal and healthy and get enough stimulation from their parents, motor development will go well even if not taught. The following are some things you can do to stimulate your baby's motor development:
Position the baby often on his stomach. Make sure you keep an eye on your baby when he is positioned on his stomach (especially if your baby cannot roll over on his own)
Frequently position your baby in a sitting position and always support your baby from behind until your baby is ready to sit alone. One of the signs that a baby can begin to sit on its own is when a baby starts to sit leaning forward with his hands. This position is called the tripod position. When the baby has entered this phase, you do not need to support the baby again from behind, but you can still sit behind the baby to keep at any time if the baby loses balance.
When you can sit in a tripod position, give toys in front of the baby so that the baby starts learning to reach the toys in front of him and can maintain his balance without leaning on his hands again.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
