Sensory Exploration

Moving from Instincts to Learning

Babies are born with many instincts, or reflexes, to help them survive life outside the womb. As they get older, these instinctive moves are replaced by purposeful actions. For example, your baby will lose the reflexes of sucking, palmer grasp, and tonic neck because she'll be able to decide when to suck on her fingers for comfort and pleasure, hold and explore objects, and intentionally reach out with one arm. During her 3-6 month time period, your baby's vision will also be changing. She'll now be able to see more than a foot away, and in full color, too!

Has your baby achieved the following Sensory Exploration developmental milestones yet? If yes, check off all the skill(s) she has already mastered to date!
