"Forcing" my baby to sit up - guilt

Hello everyone, since my baby turned 6months (now 10months) I've been putting him in sitting position most of the time. My baby doesn't sit straight and hunch his back so I googled how to help him with posture. I now read online that you shouldn't put baby to sit until he sit up on his own. I feel so extremely guilty as I didn't know that sad. I'm now scared I ruined my child's back sad. Need some reassurance I'm not the only one who does it. And I'm stopping tomorrow!

I used to sit my LO up for a few seconds at a time and very slowly and gradually build up the time till he was able to sit up unaided. I did that from 6 months and he is now 17mo running rings around me! Your LO will be fine: smile

Don't worry, some babies are only happy when sitting up and watching what's going on. I'm sure your little one will be fine.
