During these weeks, your baby may begin to wave his arms around more when excited. Increasingly, his hands will catch his attention. He may spend a lot of time trying to move them in front of him where he can see them. After many tries, he may be able to move them to his mouth.
Do babies move their arms a lot?
As their muscles develop, their arms and legs start to move more freely, stretching out to make them seem taller and leaner. During their first 2 months, your baby is growing very quickly.
Why do babies move hands so much?
Babies use their hands more and more and will learn to reach and grab for what they want. Theyre learning to pass an object from one hand to the other and to pick up objects by raking them with the fingers into their grasp.
When do babies arms stop flailing?
Moro reflex is most prominent in newborns. But this startle reflex gradually gets better and typically completely disappears by month 5 or 6. Typically by week-6 your babys neck muscles get stronger and their overall balance and ability to support themselves starts to improve.
