Q.

4 month old

I am feeling a little worried about my 4 month old baby. Baby books say that she should be reaching and grabbing for toys by now but my baby has not even tried to grab at a toy. Could there be a problem?

If you are happy that your baby can see normally and appears to be well in all respects then do not be concerned. Her next important milestone is at around 6 months when she will start to sit by herself.If you are concerned about your baby's development at any stage ask your doctor to see her.
