Motor skills of 4 month old?

From: Jennifer

Subject: Motor Skills
Question: My daughter will be 4 mo old on 5/22. She was 5.5 wks premature. She has developed in most areas on time except for some motor skills. She still really wont hold any toys nor does she really "play" with toys. Is this something to be concerned about? I tried to put her toys in her hand to hold, but she really doesnt grasp them. She also doesn't roll over yet either. Could her being premature cause her to be slower in these areas?


Answer: Dear Jennifer,

You are worried about your daughter. I would consult with the baby's doctor right away to ease your mind.
