    What do you class as sitting properly??

    Hebe sits fine but if I left her for say 10 mins she'd definately have fallen one way or the other or backwards!! She sits up lovely and straight but then she spots something and leans too far and she's over!! :lol:

    I know for the sake of carseats it's sitting unaided for 10 mins which I dont think she's capable of yet. She can sit in a high chair because it stops her from falling but she's not slumped in it IYKWIM.

    So when do you say your baby can 'officially' sit up?

    :D

    I agree! Max can sit up but always gets distracted by something, gets over confident, leans that little bit too far and PLONK hes down!!

    Max is in his big boy carseat now and is the same as Hebe, he sits upright in his highchair without being slumped :happydance: He seems much more comfy in it too :)

    And of course girls the fact that all 3 of our kids have just finished Tolstoy's War and Peace is much more important....:winkwink:

    She's loads better in the new car seat - really comfy :happydance:

    I'm not sure :shrug: Jay can sit unaided for quite a while now (up to 30 mins) but like Hebe, if he's distracted by a toy he loses balance and plonks over on his side / back.

    He won't be going into a big carseat for a while though as he's still quite dinky (18lb at his last weigh in).

    Hannah sat up unaided right around six months......she was pretty stable and we could leave her sitting on her own.

    I classify it as I could leave her to sit and play on her own (even though in the beginning I was careful and put a pillow behind her)

    Yeah - I can leave her but I put the V pillow behind her - 9 times out of ten if I left the room she'd have toppled by the time I came back :lol:

    Courtney was 18lb 6 at her 8 month check which makes her too small for a bigger car seat.
    Its not all about comfort, but its safety... I thought their was laws against it :shrug:

    Not sure what the law is Kerry but when Hebe was weighed on tues the HV said that I should check the max weight on her infant carrier as she's 9kg and that's when you look to move them to the next size. I said I thought they had to sit unaided for 10mins AND be 9kg - she said that you go of the weight rather than how they are sitting BUT the woman in Mothercare said you go off how they sit and then the weight:wacko:
    So as she's able to sit and is 9kg we've moved her :shrug:

    yeh thats what my hv said.. 9kg and that courtney was still a lil small for a forward facing car seat!!

    Its all confusing cos really weight is just a small factor surely?!?

    One day they will make up their minds :rofl:
