Finger Dexterity

How can I improve my 6mo old's finger dexterity? He can pick up big toys, but he absolutely cannot pick up small things with his two fingers. Even when I put something to eat in his two fingers, he doesnt try to bring it up to his mouth or anything. All he does is open his mouth for me to put it in for him!

  • The only way this will improve is for him to get older. He is too young to have a pincer grasp yet. A few kids may begin to develop a pincer grasp as young as 8 months, most can do it by 10 months.
