Stretches the arms to be lifted.
Moves both eyes together.
Watches the activities of people and animals close to him/her.
Takes a small toy in his/her hands.
Looks where the object may have fallen.
Recognises a relative crossing the room.
Uses the index finger and the thumb to take small objects.
Play “PIRATES” with the baby and cover one eye and the other alternatively because there are diseases that affect only one eye.
