When a baby starts to point, she likely won’t be pointing at anything in particular

When a baby starts to point, she likely won’t be pointing at anything in particular—-but it suggests she’s working on her pincer grasp. Having a pincer grasp allows your little one to pick up tiny things using her thumb and pointer finger. It also means she can pinch you. Most babies have a reliable pincer grasp by 9 – 10 months old. ⁣⁣⁣

Is your baby starting the ‘pointing at random stuff’ phase yet?

My 7 month old is picking up the tiniest piece of garbage from the floor. 🤦🏼‍♀️ the vacuum can’t seem to pick those pieces up. 😂😂😂

I thought it was called the palmer grasp when they start to grab a hold of small objects. (Especially fingers)
