We would like to welcome you to our infant sitting homepage! Since learning to sit in infancy is a wonderful milestone anticipated by parents and an important step in infants motor development, researchers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and at the Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center have joined forces to explore this essential milestone. We will offer information to parents as to what they need to know about sitting development in infancy. In addition, we will provide information on our experimental paradigm and the list of publications that emerged through this work funded by the National Institutes of Health and the US Department of Education.
