Question: My daughter was born on 6june 2018. When shall we expect our daughter will try to stand on her feet and will sit without support
Answer: She is 8months so should sit without support. Have u been trying make her sit with support since 6th month? Standing on her feet also needs to be stimulated by us since 2 months age then only she would respond as per age. Each baby grows differently and takes her own time. Make her try, that way she would learn to maintain her posture. She won't stand up herself but would be able to take her weight on her legs while holding a chair or table.

Question: My baby is completed 8 months but still not able to sit without support? Y?
Answer: Babies might start sitting as early as 4 months old or as late as 9 months. Don't try to rush it.you should make sure she should be able to hold her neck up, have some balance, and have trunk muscles. Put your baby on her back so you can slowly pull her up by her hands to a sitting position.The best way to learn: enticement. Baby loves looking at herself in mirrors already. Try placing one just a little too high for her to see into; this will encourage her to sit up. Another muscle-strengthening idea: Hold your baby under the arms so she can put her feet on the floor. Baby can't stand alone yet, but holding her in that position helps gain more core strength. Hope this will help
