  • While laying on his back your baby should be able to move head side to side, kick his legs, waving his arms, wiggle and squirm.

 

FINE MOTOR SKILLS.

  • Your baby should be able to grasp your finger if you touch his hand.

  • Touch his face with his hands.

  • Keep the hands open while awake rather than in a fist, as they were when he was a newborn.

So these are the most important activities that your baby should be doing at the end of the four(4) months, it is important to give your baby the time to gradually develop, however, is also important the training from parents or caregivers to the child, remember diseases such as Autism cannot be diagnosed in the womb, so if your baby does not do any of these activities at the end of the four months you should check with the doctor.
