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

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.
