Early motor delays can be detected by 3 months of age and the motor milestones video series can help parents and caregivers to track their baby’s development and detect possible delays.

By 3 months, baby should:
• While lying on tummy, pushes up on arms
• While lying on tummy, lifts and holds head up
• Able to move fists from closed to open
• Able to bring hands to mouth
• Moves legs and arms off of surface when excited

The first 3 months of a baby’s life are a critical time for growth and development. Infants begin to learn how to move their bodies and interact with others. Some of baby’s key motor milestones at 3 months include using Tummy Time. Practicing Tummy Time will help babies meet milestones by building their core strength and ability to explore their environment.

Use Pathways.org resources to track baby’s milestones and help identify potential early motor delays. If you notice your baby is not meeting their 0-3 months motor milestones, contact their health care provider.
