Stage 1: 1-3 Months
Despite being so tiny and small, your little one will start trying to grab things with their little hands. You may even catch your baby trying hard to grab objects that hang down in front of them. However, it is critical to note that your baby won’t be able to coordinate the movements enough to grab these objects yet.
Stage 2: 4-6 Months
At this stage, your baby should start to master the use of their hands. Your little one would try to grab and literally pull anything that is in front of them – watch out for your collar, necklaces and hair! Babies have great force when they pull.
Stage 3: 7-9 Months
During this stage, your little one will begin to move a lot. Babies can crawl or drag themselves to sit on their little bums. This friction can be rough on their delicate skin, so be sure to moisturize your little ones with NIVEA Baby Mild Touch Moisturizing Lotion.
Stage 4: 10-12 Months
Your baby grows, learns and develops every single day and by the end of the first year, you will experience a lot of changes in your baby. The little one will learn to grab objects between their thumb and forefinger, move around a room by gripping furniture for support and maybe even take their first steps!
Stage 5: 1 year +
After the first year, your little one is not so little! Your child will begin to develop other skills such as eating and drinking on their own, pushing and pulling toys and objects, and might even speak!
