Activities to support your baby's motor skill development
Your baby's movements in the first few months of life transition from quick, jerky actions to smoother, more intentional movements as the nervous system and muscle control start getting in sync. You can help strengthen your baby's muscle development and motor skills with simple activities and practice.
What are your baby's motor skills?
Improving gross motor skills involves the large groups of muscles your baby uses to sit, stand, walk, run, keep balance, or change positions. Fine motor skills include using hands to eat, draw, play, or pick up small items.
