You can help support the development of your baby’s gross motor skills from the moment you bring them home. Gross motor skills involve the large muscles of the body, such as the arms and legs.
In early child development, it’s the strengthening of these muscles that enable infants to hold their head up, sit up independently, crawl, and eventually walk.
