We're so excited, this is what Rebekah has been doing all week long! She has been able to sit up for a long time, but CHOOSES NOT too because she is a stinker! But she is now sitting up again and again and it is exciting to see her interested in seeing the world from a different perspective. Here is the strange thing about her sitting - she usually only sits up independently when there is pressure against her lower back (in the case of the video - this is the mat behind her pressing against the small of her back). I need to rig up some sort of belt that places pressure in her lower back, and see if that improves her sitting. It's like some sort of neurological/sensory thing because the mat is clearly not high enough to be providing sitting support. It's just the pressure/sensation giving the right input for her body to balance properly. If anyone has any thoughts on this - please share them! I'm hoping to find an equal trigger for her standing.
