When the baby starts to hold his head on his own

When do children begin to keep their head on their stomachs and in an upright position? At 3 months we do not hold our head well, is it worth worrying?

A newborn baby can not control the work of the neck muscles. All his movements are absolutely reflexive. When raising a child by the hands of his head leans back, and it can damage the cervical vertebrae. Therefore, until the child begins to hold his head on his own, you need to support him on the back of the head, holding it, feeding or bathing.

How many months does the newborn begin to lift and hold his head?

Gradually the child begins to control his body. The first achievement of his physical development comes on the second; the third week. At this time, when laying on the stomach, the child tries to raise his head.

Further development of neck muscles occurs in the following order:

  • In the second month (2; 3 month) children raise their heads at an acute angle (again lying on their stomachs). This situation the kids can keep for thirty seconds or about a minute.
  • In three months (3 months) children begin to hold their head in an upright position. But there is still a need for a safety net for the muscles that are not strong; it is worth continuing to support the child’s head. Lying on the belly, the kids can already raise their head and shoulders. When lifting the child by the arms, the body, neck and head form one line.
  • In four months (4 months) there comes a time when the child independently and quite confidently starts to hold his head. He turns it around, knowing the world around him. Lying on the belly, the baby already lifts the upper part of the trunk.
