Hi, my name is Christina. And this is, "At what age do babies typically learn to clap?" Generally most babies learn to clap between six to nine months. It's so much watching them interact with their environment and developing motor skills. Around the age of six months, your baby is most likely sitting up with not much support. If not sitting up on their own completely, and they're able to pick things up and put them in their mouth and play with various objects. They're also learning how to clap. Each baby's motor skills develop at a different rate. Some babies are quicker and some babies are slower at developing their motor skills. Unless your baby is lagging behind in other things, especially socially, there's no reason to worry. Each baby is different. At this age, if you want to try and teach your baby to learn how to clap. They're watching you and trying to mimic. So it can be lots of fun to put on some music and move their hands in a clapping movement for them. Showing them what movement feels like and then, demonstrating to them with your own hands in an excited way. It can really get them into trying to do it themselves. Six to nine months is such a fun time in infancy and you as their parent get to learn right along with them. Thanks for watching.
