As early as the third or fourth month, infants are learning to have more control of their bodies. Your infant may push herself up to see you when you walk into the room. She may try to move closer to an interesting toy. She will soon be able to sit with your support. Here are some things you can do to aid your baby in developing her motor skills.

Step 1: When your infant is ready, try placing her in different positions to help her develop new skills like rolling, creeping and crawling. 

Step 2: Give your infant time to play on her stomach and her back throughout the day.

Step 3: Offer her toys to explore that have different textures, sounds and shapes. Let her shake, bang, push, pick up and drop toys.
