Boys Town Pediatrics

Milestones is an exciting and important way to track the development of your baby.

Here are some things you might see your baby doing around 4 months of age. 

Your baby can:

  • Grasp a toy and move it back and forth
  • Hold his head steady  when unsupported
  • Bring his hands up to his mouth
  • Push up from his stomach to his elbows
  • Start to roll from stomach to back

At 4 months of age, your baby's language and communication skills are developing.

Your baby can:

  • React to attention and affection
  • Intensely look at faces closely
  • Start to become aware of depth and distance
  • Uses eyes and the hands together to reach for toys

Every child is different. Some of these behaviors and milestones generally occur at certain ages, however, a wide range of growth and behavior for each age is normal.

Remember, if you have any concerns about your child's development, check with your pediatrician.

​Every milestone is important to your child's growth and development. Boys Town Pediatrics provides general guidelines on what to expect when your child reaches 4 months of age.
