Your baby's motor skills take off within the first days of her birth, starting with her gaining head control. She may move her head from side to side when placed on her front, or bob it against you when you hold her close to your chest.
At two months she may be able to lift her head up at a 45-degree angle when placed on her tummy.
By three to four months your baby has almost gained complete head control, but her body still wobbles when you pull her into a sitting position – a pose she loves being in. She has also discovered her hands and likes to touch everything.
Your baby is discovering how much her body can do for her. You may be struck by her strength and trunk control as she starts to master rolling over. She can now also sit propped up for longer periods of time, and may even try to sit up by herself.
At six months, your little one will have full control of their head. She will be able to bear more weight on her forearms. When lying on her front, she can push herself up, arch her back and raise her head. She may also reach for toys from this position, often overbalancing.
