Observe the infant during diapering.
No elicitation is needed during diapering. Before or after diapering the adult places a hat on the infant’s head.
The child recognizes something is on his head and removes it.
Infants now have more strength in and control over their lower limbs. Parents may not notice the infant’s efforts, so point out how the infant anticipates the adult’s actions and participates. Taking off the hat is a first step for dressing one’s self.
