NAN: Physical Milestones at Seven Months

Lesson Progress
0% Complete

Around seven months old, a child can be expected to support his whole weight on his legs. He is also expected to transfer an object from hand to hand and pick up objects with a raking finger motion. At this stage of development, infants first sit with the support of their hands, then without that support. 

If a nanny notices that an infant is unable to support his weight on his legs, sit with or without using his hands for support, transfer an object from hand to hand or use a raking finger motion to pick up objects, nannies should mention this to the parents and suggest that they share the information with the child’s pediatrician.
