Q:

My baby is 12 weeks old and he didnot start grasping and holding things...is it a matter of concern..?how to resolve it?



Sheeba Vijesh

no, need to worry... you can encourage by giving small rattles to hold... Roopashree Siddireddy what say..?

I don't think you should be worried about it yet coz your baby is only 3 months now. His or her eyes hand coordination will still take some weeks to develop. Check for the  developmental milestones Sneha Murali

hey dear...  i think the baby is too small to cope up all this.  please let him grow at his own space dear..  he will grasp and hold things on his own.  i suppose its not the matter of concern as of now. 

Roopashree Siddireddy

Sneha sometimes it takes time to learn things. As baby is small it will take time. while massaging open baby's hand...as baby always fold fingers. Also.. try to play with baby...and open its finger and let baby grab your finger. You can buy play gym...that will be good and encourage baby to reach n hold. Thanks for the tag Sheeba Vijesh. I agree with Sheeba. Buy rattles as wel.

I agree with Roopashree Siddireddy on three idea of a play gym. I have been using one for my 7 month old since the time she turned 3 months and if she is in a happy mood (tummy full and well slept) she loves to reach for the hanging toys and feel the different textures! :)

if your baby grabbing your finger ... then it's fine.  don't compare your baby with others.
milestones are same for babies but not the time.  my sisters baby started rolling in his 3.5 months and my baby has started in his 4.5th month .
so don't worry. .. try to encourage baby .. play with baby.. once baby started baby started grabbing everything your chain your dupatta your hairs etc etc..☺
