Gross Motor Skills

By 6 months your baby is lifting his head, kicking arms and legs and supporting his own head.
HELP your baby by:

  • Make time to play on the floor on a baby mat. Massage and gently bend arms and legs.
  • Make sure you turn your baby from tummy to back often starting at 2 weeks of age.
  • Provide colorful toys (especially musical and toys with sounds) for baby to reach, moving them in different places where baby can track with eyes.
