Brian still keeps his fists clenched, I know there isnt a problem with flexing them because he opens his palms up in his sleep and has grasp the odd thing but generaly he keeps them tightly clenched.
I would have though he would have been opening them alot more by now, anyone elses LO keep there fists clenched or when do they normaly start opening them and using thier fingers more.
He did open them untill about 5 weeks but stoped.
Mika does the same. Sometimes when I lay him down he will stretch his arms out with his hands open and flail them until he finds my finger, but usually when he is awake and playing he keeps them clenched.
With Earl we noticed one day he was watching his hands - it actually coincided with the first time we gave him calpol so hubby joked that it was because he could see tracers! - and since then he's been pretty much grabbing everything and has them open. When he's tired or a bit overwhelmed they go back into fists really tightly and he wont let go of whatever is in them. The other day it was my hair lol
I was just thinking the same thing this morning. She certainly opens them more than she used to, but I thought the clenched hands would have been a thing of the past by now. Of course I am saying this because of what the stupid baby book is telling me and I know all babies do things at their own pace. Personally, I think I just like to look for things to worry about. It sure would be easier to clean them if they were open. Every time she spits up she has to put her hand in it. Grr.
