Your baby’s small movements often lay the foundation for more challenging ones. Developing motor skills usually requires babies to master one before they move on to the next.
Two of these smaller but significant movements are reaching and grasping (fun fact, these actions are known as prehension). Reaching and grasping allows your baby to interact with the world around them on their terms.
Although babies are born with a palmer grasp reflex (involuntarily closing their hands when something touches their palms), accurate, voluntary reaching and grasping develop around four to five months of age.
Since reaching and grasping are critical for further motor development, it’s never too early to introduce your baby to some reaching and grasping challenges.
