At What Age Do Babies Sit?

At What Age Do Babies Sit?

Babies begin to sit anywhere from 4-6 months, with independent sitting emerging closer to 6 months.

Babies will often first sit in what’s called the “tripod” position, meaning that the legs are spread wide and the hands are down in front supporting their body.

As they get stronger, they should begin to lift their hands and reach for objects. Protective reactions emerge around this time as well, and you may start to see them try and catch themselves if they lean too far to the side.

Backwards is last

Backwards (posterior) protective reactions emerge last, so you may want to keep a pillow handy to place behind them in case they fall!
