    Ours is 10 days old, just wondered when we can expect to see her grabbing things and playing with things?

    Toby's 10 weeks old now and has just started grabbing things, but he started smiling at about 4 weeks and giggling a bit in the last few days so he's been enjoying having people talk and sing to him for ages now - just hasn't had the coordination to actually reach out and touch things! It'll be a while before he's properly playing with things though

    Otter started looking at things at a few weeks. He started trying to bat thing with this fist at about 5 weeks and grabbed a toy for the first time (Sophie the Giraffe) at 7 weeks. Then it was like madness! Next thing I knew he was pulling on everything and putting everything in his mouth! LOL

    She started to kick at toys in her bouncer at just shy of 2 months, grabbing toys came shortly after... until then she'd just lay there and look at things.

    He swiped at things at about 2 1/2 months and occasionally grabbed them by mistake. It was around 3 months when he managed to deliberately take hold of things and playing properly followed fairly quickly.
