Baby not sitting

Answered 10 months ago

My baby boy will be 8 months old in first week of dec and i am worried that he still cant sit up by himself. He has been healthy and all his checks at vaccinations have been great. He is eating and sleeping like a champion. He plays and squeals and grab things and puts everything in his mouth.
He sits leaning forward for 30-40 seconds and then wobbles to the side. He is my third and last and i cant remember when they can sit on their own.? Should i be worried?

Trust your gut. Even if it is just to put your mind at ease it doesn’t hurt to talk to the mchn or your gp about these things.
