When it is nearing the time to introduce solids to your little one you will be able to pop him in the highchair for short periods so he becomes familiar with the chair and the feel of sitting upright for longer periods of time.
All babies differ when it comes to sitting up on their own. From approximately four to five month’s, most babies will be capable with a little assistance to sit for short periods in a sit-me-up baby chair, play seat or inflatable baby play ring. If you do want to invest in one of the above you will find examples of these at the end of this article.
A baby can be also propped up with the aid of cushions on his playmate however it is important to stay near by because until he can sit comfortably on his own he could very easily topple over as it takes time for him to develop strength in his back muscles.
