Infant Physical

Physical-ability to lift head slightly (0-1 month), ability to pass an object from one hand to another (6 months), ability to roll over (6 months), ability to crawl (9-10 months).

If you place your finger in the palm of a baby's hand, they will grasp your finger slightly. This is called grasp reflex.

A new born baby is held up right with their feet touching the ground, they will make movements as it tries to walk.

infancy intellectual

Intellectual- during the first 18 months infants have to coordinate their senses and muscle behaviour. 1-2yrs infants do not understand that an object exists unless it is in their view. 2-7yrs children do not think logically.

Babies explore by sucking toys, fingers, clothing, and so on. In this way they can get an understanding of objects.
