Age: 5-7 months

Eating and feeding performance

Sensorimotor

Cognition

Psycho-social

Eating and feeding performance: Takes cereal or poured baby food from spoon.

Sensorimotor: Has good stability and emerging sitting abilities reaches and grasps toys, explores and tolerates various textures (eg. fingers, rattles) Puts objects in mouth.

Cognition: Attends to effect produced by actions, such as hitting or shaking.


Psycho-social: Plays with caregiver during meals and engages in interactive routines.

2

Age: 6-8 months

Eating and feeding performance

Sensorimotor

Cognition

Psycho-social

Eating and feeding performance: Attempts to hold bottle but may not retrieve it if it falls, needs to be monitored for safety reasons.

Sensorimotor:

Cognition: Object performance is emerging and infant anticipates spoon or bottle.

Psycho-social: Is easily distracted by stimuli (especially siblings) in the environment.

3

Age: 6-9 months

Eating and feeding performance

Sensorimotor

Cognition

Psycho-social

Eating and feeding performance: Holds and tries to eat cracker but sucks on it more than bites it, consumes soft foods that dissolve in the mouth, grabs at spoon but bangs it or sucks on either end of it.

Sensorimotor: Good sitting stability emerges, able to use hands to manipulate smaller parts of rattle, guided reach and palmer grasp applied to hand to mouth actions with objects.

Cognition: Uses familiar actions initially with haphazard variations. seeks novelty and is anxious to explore objects (may grab at food on adults plate)

Psycho-social: Recognizes strangers, emerging sense of self.

Sensorimotor: shoulder and wrist stability demonstrates precise movements

Cognition: experiments to learn rules of how objects work, actively solves problems by creating new action solutions.

Psycho-social: internalizes standards imposed by others for how to play with objects.

7

Cognition

Psycho-social

Eating and feeding performance: Demonstrates interest in using fork, may stab at food such as pieces of canned fruit, proficient at spoon use and eats cereal with milk or rice with gravy with utensil.
