    As your child is now gaining control over his neck, you will see a lot of head shaking and head turning all the time. Your baby will move his head from side to side before latching onto you. This is because your baby is practicing the skill and enjoying the attention that he is getting from you due to his new skill. Your baby moves his head while sleeping as well. With the development of the gross and fine motor muscles, he is learning to get control over the different body parts.
