Approaching the half-year mark, your baby is becoming an active member of the family. At this stage he will:

  • Roll from stomach to back and over again.
  • Use hands to bang and splash objects.
  • Prefer to play with people, especially games like ‘peek-a-boo’.
  • Vocalize both pleasure and displeasure.
  • Study objects for a long time, even turning them upside down to get another view.
