Development events in infants

The most important development events in infants are:

  1. Six weeks: The infant regards objects in the line of vision, begins to smile, and has head lag when pulled to a sitting position.
  2. Three months: His head is steady on sitting, and objects are grasped when placed in his hand.
  3. Six months: Sits with support, transfer and object from hand to hand, and rolls over.
  4. Nine months: Pulls himself to a standing position, crawls, waves “bye, bye”, and  says “”mama” and “dada”.
  5. One year:  The infant walks with his hand held and speaks several words.
