Motor development is divided into gross motor development and fine motor development.
A new born baby’s brain is not developed enough for a controlled skilled movement. Therefore, growth and development starts with the head first moving then to the whole body below. With time your baby will be able to control the whole body.
Your baby can be encouraged and nurtured by playing interactive Born Smart games to support brain development. However, do not force your baby to hold objects or stand up. Forcing your child to grow and develop skills can damage the brain. So let your baby lead and do what is comfortable. Keep your baby happy.
