The motor skills of a baby

Your baby will quickly take giant steps in terms of motor skills' development.

  • The first few months are when your baby's motor skills make the most progress: reflex movements gradually give way to real gestures and postures.
  • By the third or fourth month, a baby can coordinate eye and hand.
  • By the sixth month, he or she can roll over on their own and hold their head.
  • By age one, babies can stand, crawl, and take a few steps with your help.
