Once I’m able to hold my head up on my own and have the tummy strength, you can start letting me learn how to sit up by myself. Try putting me on my bottom on the floor and holding my hands while I balance my body. Don’t let go just yet! While I’m still learning to balance myself, I can fall if you let go of my hands. Once I’m ready to sit up by myself, you’ll be able to tell when I’m not using your hands for support.
