At what age do babies hold their head straight?
we have a newborn (6 wks old), and she is starting to put her head up straight but it doesnt last more than a few seconds, at what age do they hold it straight on their own?
just curious

It's different for each baby. You can get this cool book at Walmart called Your Baby Week-By-Week. It'll tell you milestones your baby may be hitting weekly.

Holding their head up straight, while laying on their bellies, will happen closer to 3 months, I think. It's hard to remember.

My son started really holding his head up well at 2 months, but that is early. Between 3-4 months is typical, I believe.
