My ds is very uninterested in playing with toys. He will reach to his gym and bat toys and hold some toys for a second or two before dropping them. He is really interested in people and what is happening around him but I am worried that he is not able to grasp objects for long. Are some babies just more observers than interacters or should I be worried.

This is entirely normal at this age - my DS2 is 23 weeks, too. They don't have the motor control or attention span for toys yet. I think my DS2 is a bit better at this than DS1 was, but both of them would rather watch people.

thanx nqc, I have been around friends with babies and got myself all paranoid as they are so much more advanced than my ds, he is still a real baby, baby and I get worried that he will not catch up to what the others are doing as he is uninterested in anything other than watching. I feel a bit more reassured that you have a baby the same age who prefers observing to interacting.
