What age do kids start to hold their heads up completely, crawling, grabbing things, etc? I know every child is different but about the ages they begin to do these things.

  • My son started to hold hid head up pretty straight at 2.5 months fully at 4 months. He started to hold toys that were put in his hand at 4 months. Hes 5 months now and is always reaching for toys. He loves to be on his tummy he kicks his legs strong and pushes himself up high.

  • Usually this starts at about 2-3 months, barely picking their head, up grabbing at things, etc. Then about 4-5 months they start lifting head up high, trying to crawl, grabbing things, etc. As for as the actual crawling the baby may not crawl at all. I knew a kid that never crawled. He went straight from scooting to walking early. Your baby will do it on thing at its right time.

  • my daughter started holding her head up without any help from me around 4 months and just know at almost 8 months is trying to crawl. No two kids are the same though.
