Sitting Up Reaching and Grabbing

Once your baby can sit up—with a straight back and without propping himself up on his arms—the world is his oyster. He can see all around, rotate, lean without falling over, and reach out to grab objects. He can begin to think about going places on his own!

As he becomes better at using his hands and fingers, you will need to ensure that his play area is free of objects that pose a choking danger, particularly older siblings’ toys.
