3–6 MONTHS REACHING OUT WITH BOTH ARMS

Decoded message:

I want you near me. I need your attention.

Suggested actions:

Staying close

Go see your child and smile at him.
Keep him close and cuddle with him.
This is the ideal time to rock him and sing his favorite songs.

Promoting play

Sit down or lie down with him on the floor, while holding him close.
Lay him down on your stomach and bounce him softly, while holding on to his hands.
Use a baby carrier.
Your child will love to be carried around while you see to your chores.
He will make new discoveries while he is in an upright position and this will foster his curiosity.
Make sure your baby is safe while you carry him and avoid accident-prone activities, such as cooking or cleaning.
