Hi everyone, I have a question, which is bothering me, maybe you can help.
In my home country of Ukraine babies under the age of around 6 month are never taught to sit or made to sit by their moms or others, but they wait for the child to learn to sit on his own. If infants are carried in vertical position they should be very well attached to a parent (like in a sling wrap) without any pressure made on a lower back. It is recomended by doctors and every one knows it, otherwise it can cause problems with back and back pain in future (there has been lots of research about it).
But I found that in Canada people have a very different practice, they make their babies sit on sofas, laps, etc, even if babies who are a few months old.
My question is: what do you think about this difference? Does it really cause problems in the future? Just curious about your own experience or someone in your family.
