When can babies hold toys?

Q: When will my baby be able to hold toys?

A: By about 4 months, your baby will have enough muscle and hand-eye coordination to grab small toys, and she'll love suddenly being able to reach for things and pull them toward her. As your baby's vision gets stronger and she learns to track moving objects, she'll enjoy swatting toys and watching them swing from a mini gym or mobile. Around this time, babies also discover that they can hold onto their own body parts, like their toes, and bring them closer to their eyes and mouth for exploration.
