Avery sat up on her own by 5 months and was an expert by 6. Every kid is different though. I think the thing that helped Avery is I would hold her in a sitting position and let go just a little bit. I'd catch her when she'd start to tip but she didn't like the falling feeling so soon she'd start trying to hold herself up. It build up the muscles and pretty soon she was sitting on her own.


Most babies will probably learn to sit independently between the ages of 4 and 7 months. Although most will be wobbly still so stay close by if they fall. My daughter is sitting up on her own, she's 5 months old. I'm sure it's different for every baby.
