I agree there is a big age range for what is normal for sitting unaided. DD isn't anywhere near at almost 5 months and at work i've looked after babies that weren't at 7 months but once they 'got it' they caught on very quickly and did it all the time

That has happened to me too! It is so horrible when they hit their head and you seem to have the image of them crying in your mind for a while. I think it is more of the shock that upsets them rather than it actually hurting. I find it amazing they can fall so quickly when you only turn for such a short time x

My son has just started doing this now, he will sit, but every so often he will slide to the side so I wouldnt say he can sit totally unaided yet. xxx

My LO still isn't at 6 months. He's just starting to do it if you sit with him but I think he's got a while to go yet - he's more interested in crawling!!

It is true it won't be the last time, but I still hate it when my 2.5 year old falls/trips/hurts himself! And it's true that usually the shock is worse than the pain
I was doing well with my daughter but lately she has fallen right on her face a few times while trying to crawl! Before she could sit well, she would also fall backward if the cat walked by

My son sat up unaided for the first time today!! He was really good till he got distracted and then he toppled. Did it loads of times too so not just a fluke.

One very proud mummy today :-)

Thanks all..My daughter can now lift herself up on her arms and feet and I know she is going to crawl soon. We took her to her pediatrician and she things my daughter is fine etc.. and that different babies focus on different things. She also says that DD can sit very well with support (although she immediately bends and starts chewing on her toes) and suggested a highchair with belt.
