In addition, you also have to recognize your child’s development. Child development is divided into two, namely developmental fine motor and development rough motoric. This time we will discuss about fine motoric child development. What about fine motor development in children and what are the signs of fine motor impairment in children?
Under normal circumstances, at the age of 1 month your baby is able to hold until at the end of the first month of birth the ability to grip becomes weak. Furthermore, at the age of your baby, at the age of 3 months, your baby’s habit of clenching becomes more flexible and entering the final 3 months of age, your baby can now open his hands in an open state.
Subsequent fine motor development is when your baby is 3-6 months old. Babies begin to use their fingers to be more active, even your baby is now able to use them to explore objects around them. In normal conditions, babies aged 6 to 9 months can hold objects and also move objects so that you can continue to train them by giving finger food. At this time you can early detect abnormalities experienced by your child, for example, often using his left hand instead of his right hand or only using one part of his hand to play.
Furthermore, at the age of 9-12 months your baby has smoother hand movements that can grasp objects tighter even at the age of 10 months your baby can pinch it using soft fingers or press toys so that the strength of his fingers is growing.
The risk of fine motor abnormalities in children can be reduced by providing age-appropriate stimulation. So that your child can be seen from an early age if there is an abnormality that occurs, in general, parents are very anxious to see the fine motor development of children at your child’s age who already have the ability to grasp, but your child is still unable to grasp it perfectly.
Mother does not need to worry because each child has motor development different so it is highly recommended to provide stimulation at the right age so that it can support optimal motor development. Meanwhile, if you find abnormalities in the fine motor development of your child, suddenly unable to grasp or one of the hands becomes weak, you can immediately consult a doctor.
