1 - Don't worry. 6 months is still quite young to sit up. My lo is 8 months and doesnt sit up yet.
2 - Sit her between your legs on the floor, facing out, and put some little toys in front of her ... when she leans forward and starts playing, move back so she is unsupported. It works for us...until my lo realises he is on his own now and falls over!!!

I ditto what Tiger Lily and fran1981 said!
My lo sat up at 6 months. I would support her with cushions and she hated it. then one day she did it by herself out of the blue when SHE was ready to!!

brooke sat up unaided at 5 months. she spent a lot of time in her rubber rin with toys in so if she fell back she was caught and soon enough she stated moving away from the edge.but thats very young. she was and is a big girl. my niece is 9 months and just sitting up on her own. xx

i also used to sit cameron between my legs and inch away once he was playing. he would sit for a min or so then all of a sudden started to just sit for aaagggges about a week or 2 ago. i put a v cushion a few inches behind him cos he still loses his balance on occasion. cams 7 months on sunday so dont worry about your lil lady being 6 months, some dont do it till much older.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
