If it is four months later, it seems that you can try to sit on the waist stool, but everyone must understand that the waist stool is not a tool that a child must use during the growth and development of the child, nor does it mean that the child’s ability to sit on the waist stool means progress in development.

What kind of waist stool is better
A waist stool with a strap is recommended.

How to protect your baby's spine
When using the waist stool, when the baby faces inward, we instinctively support the baby's back with our hands, which is actually protecting the baby's lumbar spine. On the contrary, when the baby is facing outside, we will feel that the baby is always safe by relying on our body, but will ignore the protection of the baby's spine.
The correct approach is to ensure that the baby's lower back is close to the parents, the thighs and the back are at right angles, and the knees are naturally bent and relaxed.
