    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.
