As you know, Alfie was 5 weeks early too, and it took him a while to be able to do it. At first he didn't like it and just laid there and licked the floor, and looked like he was stranded, but slowly he started to be able to hold his head up more and more. Now he is so nosy, he doesn't like laying down and wants to sit up all the time so he can see what is going on.

hellenp - wen did alfie start to lift his head then?

jennaxhx - yer goergia dusnt even try. we were at dietician and shes referred us to physio coz her necks not very strong she gets tired after holding her head up whilst on my know. and nowhere near sitting up wither so cant put her in high chair to feed her which isnt helping with the weaning.

so hopefully physio will be able to encourage her movement:)

Hi Laura

It's only been the last 2 or 3 weeks. He is really strong, I started weaning him ages ago and since then he has grown so much. He was 15lb when he was last weighed.

I'm sure she will do it when she is ready, I thought he was never going to be able to and I didn't put him on his tummy much as he used to cry, but I thought I should start doing it more and one day he just did it.

He hasn't got a high chair as he can't sit up yet, I sit him in his rocker to feed him. He now has breakfast, tea and a pudding!

Post subject: Trust your instincts
Usually by the end of their 3rd month birthday, a baby is able to lift up their head and push up on their forearms while lying on their tummy. This is aided by plenty of Tummy Time, to strengthen upper body, neck and core muscles. For more information on what’s expected in the way of infant milestones, check out this chart from Pathways Awareness: http://bit.ly/6NUpfi. If you feel your LO is developing at a concerning pace, schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider sooner rather than later. You are the expert on your child – trust your instincts.
