When Can Baby Hold Head Up On Own

I know that you have to hold the baby's head when you are holding him because his neck cannot support his head, but when is their neck strong enough to hold their own head up...it makes me so nervous when I see someone holding a baby, I'm always thinking in my head "Hold his head, Hold his head!" when do you have to stop worrying about "holding his head"?

I had to smile when I read your question... I'm the same way! So, I did a little looking around... sounds to me like the baby's head needs to be supported until the baby can hold it up on its own without flopping around. Nobody mentions a time frame - I think it just depends on the baby!
