Q.

IS BABY READY TO SIT?

Baby is 11 weeks and can sit for 15 to 30 minutes with support of blankets etc. Could she be ready to sit?
Someone just told me that it's too soon and baby will suffer from bad body odour/smell in the long run.
How true is this?

Please help

Please don't listen to stories like these. However your baby is far too young to be sitting yet, I would not expect her to be sitting unsupported by 6 months.

your baby is far to young to sit. They only start sitting by themselves or with a little support from 6 months onwards.
