When do babies start holding their heads up?


One of the first milestones for your baby is being able to hold up their head. If you’re wondering when you should expect this new development, I’ve got you covered!

Babies should hit this milestone by the 6 month mark. They’ll be building up to this big step from birth and you’ll typically start to see bigger strides around 3-4 months.

What can I do to help?

You can encourage your baby to meet this milestone with short and easy exercises and strategic play. Here are some ideas to get you started:

For newborns...

Be sure to have regular tummy time.

1-3 months...

Place enticing items just out of their reach and use an interactive playmat.

3-6 months...

Wear your baby in a carrier. This will give baby practice holding up her held while still receiving support.
