When do Babies Control Their Head?

Holding an infant makes many people nervous because of their wobbly head. You should have no worries if you remember when babies are born it’s important to support their neck and head. They’re not able to hold their head up on their own.

A baby’s neck will strengthen over time. To help baby with this task, for the first few months give baby lots of tummy time to help them strengthen their arms, shoulder, neck, and their head. This is a great time for you to get down with them. They’ll want to lift up to see your loving face.

When baby is three to four months old, they should be able to completely hold their head up on their own and this is when you can use a carrier or stroller.
