Your Baby Will Now Hold On To You

Your Baby Will Now Hold On To You
Fine Motor
Eye-Hand movement

Your little one is achieving so many new things at one go. Did your little one just tug at your hair? Or grasp your finger? If yes, she has successfully accomplished another milestone.

It may seem ordinary and insignificant, but grasping is in fact foundation for future motor skills, such as holding on to a spoon and eating on their own. It will also help her hold a book, read, grasp her toys, and curl her finger around her pencil.

What you need to know

Your little one is born with a grasping reflex, but it becomes more apparent around the fourth or the fifth month as she begins to pick her own toys, bat against hanging toys, and use her palms to grab them.
