How to teach baby to sit up
Babies' muscles strengthen when they are used again and again. Practising to sit in earlier months is important for babies to develop strength in their upper body to support the weight. Place your baby in a sitting position on the floor with their hands in front of their legs so they can push themselves up using their arms. This is called a Tripod position. Your baby’s back may look rounded in this position, but don’t worry it will become straighter as they get stronger. Sitting in a Tripod position gives your child a wider base for support of their body and helps in stability. With the arms in front of their legs, your child will be able to manage weight for longer.
