    Infants need to learn how to move and to use their bodies to perform various tasks, a process better known as motor development. Initially, babies' movements are simply the uncontrolled, reflexive movements they are born with. Over time, they learn to move their body parts voluntarily to perform both gross (large) and fine (small) motor skills. Family members can see signs of early motor development: infant rotates his head to follow the movements of a caregiver, rolls over, reaches for objects, crawls. These early motor behaviors signal to parents that their child is developing in a typical and timely fashion; expectations are met. However, when the child has delayed motor.

    Antigravity Movement: Chin tucked and chest elevated. Flexion and extension of knees, may play with feet together, lateral weight shift to wrap with the opposite hand. The infant may also push backward in this position. Weightbearing: Weight on hands, lower abdomen and thighs. Triangle base of support between nape elbow and thigh and face knee. Babies' earliest learning happens through their senses. Long before a newborn's clenched fist uncurls at about 3 to 4 months-allowing him to take hold of the world and grasp, pat, and bat at objects-a baby is learning through his sensory system: through touch, hearing, sight, muscle sense, taste and smell. Exploring Through the Senses.

      Developmental Movements: Part One Infants develop movement by progressively learning a series of fundamental movement patterns, which form the building blocks for more complex movements. For example, while lying on the ground and sitting in various positions, an infant learns to stabilize her head so she can see the world. Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move (crawling, walking, etc.). Click on the age of your child to see the milestones: Print .
