"Forcing" my baby to sit up - guilt
Lovelyivy · 01/05/2018 22:10
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 . I'm now scared I ruined my child's back . 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: :)

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.
