Psychomotricity of the baby

What are a baby's psychomotor skills? These elements will help you understand this crucial phase of development.


  • A baby's psychomotricity is linked to their thinking and movements.
  • It refers to cognitive and motor development.
  • In a toddler, we observe development through reflexes and postures.
  • During the first few months of life, your child's psychomotor development goes through several phases.
  • Primary reflexes, such as sucking and grasping.
  • Language: your baby starts to babble!
  • Manipulation of objects around them.
  • Sitting up, and then progressive attempts to stand up.
