Good morning.. My baby of 11 weeks doesn’t like to be laid down. He always wants to sit and when he’s not allowed he cries till I put him to sit.

When he manage to lie down he tries to stand up on his own. Should I always allow him to sit?

The baby only knows what you introduce them to. He will certainly sit when he's ready which is usually btw 5-6months(with support)

An 11 week old baby should not be made to sit. The spine is very fragile for sitting. You are there to guide the baby to do what is right and appropriate for him.
