When are babies supposed to be able to reach with their hand
3

Sk1208 · 30/04/2018 17:54

Hi,

My baby reached dangling toys with his legs instead of hands. He is 13 weeks now and still not interested to reach gym stuff except with his legs.. but if I put something really close to this hand he might occasionally hold it but Definately doesn’t come naturally.

Should I be worried ? When do they start ?

I don't remember exactly when my dd did this but I think around 5.5 months

initially they just bat randomly with their hands. then they will occasionally grasp something randomly there is a grasp reflex I think that helps. Then gradually over few weeks they learn how to do this on purpose. Mine was four months when this process started I think.

My son is 4 months and he’s started to reach out and grab.
