Neural Exam - 3 month - head and trunk control

From Embryology
03mo 04.jpg
This infant is almost 3 months old.
  • A baby this age when pulled to a sitting position should
    • be able to have only slight head lag
    • when sitting, the head should be upright but there may still be some wobbling of the head.
  • The back is still rounded, so the baby slumps forward.
