It’s super cool when your baby starts to really track things, a few months in. What to know just what they can see when? Find out with this quick list here.

  • For babies 4 to 8 months, try partially hiding the toy under a blanket. Will they reach for it. Celebrate if they do!
  • For babies 8 months and older – they might be ready to find a hidden object. Let them see you hide the toy, and then see if they will search for it.
