Hand to Mouth at 4 Months Old
At 4 months old, Steven can now bring his hand up to his mouth while laying on his back. He still isn't able to do this while in the sitting position due to having to work against gravity. We have been working really hard on exercises to help with supination, which is making his palm face upward instead of the down position that it is naturally in. Steven sees an Occupational Therapist once a week and we do "therapy" all day, everyday. Everything we do with Steven has a purpose. We don't simply play with toys, we choose toys that will help him grip, lift, pull, push, etc. Everyday tasks have become therapy sessions in our home.
