What Milestones Should My Baby Reach by Six Months?

Dear Dr Siva, what milestones should my baby reach by six months?

By the time your baby is six months old, they should interact well with parents and show interest in their surroundings. They should have good head control, roll over side to side and lift their head and chest off the floor while lying on their tummy.

Most babies will also reach for toys with each hand and transfer from one hand to other. They should use both hands equally and be able to drink from a cup if an adult holds it.

Socially, they should enjoy and respond to play. They should also anticipate being lifted and touched, and resist toys being taken away.
