Your Baby's Hand Control

11 to 12 months

Your baby continues to refine his pincer grasp this month. He'll practice by stacking toys, manipulating blocks, and turning the chunky pages of a baby book. As he gets better at it, you'll need to be more alert -- invading cabinets and upsetting trash cans are par for the course. He's also beginning to wrap his hands around his bottle and utensils. He may feed himself with a spoon by a year, but don't fret if it takes him a little while longer.
