Baby not holding things yet?! Normal?!

Just a query over if my 15 week old DD should be able to grab and hold objects yet? If I physically insert a rattle in her hand she will hold it and she will grab my finger/hair! But won't grasp objects on her own. Can't sit up on her own yet but is getting better at this and has good control of her head. I'm a new mum so don't know if I'm concerned un necessarily smile

Yes you are concerned unnecessarily

She's not even 4 months yet - I think you're worrying unnecessarily. She's still a little baby.

She's less than 4 months! Dont try and make sit up on her own! At least 6 months for that.

You are worrying completely unnecessarily. At 15 weeks babies can't do very much.

DD was rolling over at 6 months, but not sitting unaided until she was 9 months. She walked at 16 months. All of these were within normal parameters.

This website might help.

Thanks! Had a feeling that was the case!
