Hi Taf,

Babies will generally use both hands to do things up until they are 12 months old. After that they start to show a preference for one or the other so in the case of your baby, it doesn't not mean he will be left handed. But if he is, that's great! Lefties represent only 10% of the population and statistically are among the most artistic and smartest group.
