Quoting Emma Catherine's mommy:" my daughter was born 35wks and literally could do that the day she was born. she was holding her head ... [snip!] ... her head while the nurse was giving her a bath right after she was born they were shocked at how much head control she had."
That's really impressive! I think it's because we don't cradle him a lot. Whenever we hold him we almost always have him sitting up. He just gets really fussy when he's laying down. He's curious. I have no idea if he had any head support the first week, I was too scared I was going to break him so I just held him very, very close and in the cradle position constantly. Then he was in the hospital for jaundice and was in the issolette.
