  • Encouraging Fine Motor Activity in Your Baby

    Develop your child's fine motor skills by letting him grasp, reach and hold objects.

  • Your baby can now hold on to things more easily and can transfer them from one hand to the other:

    • Help her develop finger dexterity by letting her hold a drinking cup with two handles so she can sip from it.
    • Give her two rattles and watch as she bangs them together.
    • Place an interesting toy near enough but out of her reach. Observe if she tries to get it. If she cries out of frustration, offer encouragement so she will have more confidence in performing physical activities. Don’t give her the toy and make everything too easy for her. After several tries, she will find that leaning forward can help her grasp the toy.
    • Dress her in unrestricting, comfy clothes to help her crawl better.
