Building Blocks: Milestones at 4 Months Old

In this video, Dr. Preeti Parikh explains baby development milestones for your four month old baby. This is a big month as this is when babies become more mobile and will begin to roll over and support themselves with their wrists. This is also the stage when you should begin buying toys for babies. While every child is different, if by four months old your child is unable to reach and grab objects, doesn’t babble or imitate sounds, or doesn’t try to stand, this may be a sign of developmental problems and you should consult with your doctor.
