Your baby may be sleeping a lot, but there are still plenty of milestones to be on the lookout for.
[MUSIC] Your one-month-old is becoming increasingly more alert and their vision is further developing, but they're still very near-sighted. So if you want your baby to really see something you have to bring it still very close to their face. And interestingly, they'll see contrast more so you want toys that are bright, either brightly colored or black and white. Toys. If you put your one-month-old on their belly, you'll find that they can briefly lift their head. Not enough necessarily to completely clear it so you wanna make sure that tummy time is supervised. When you put your one-month-old on their belly, they may look like they're even trying to crawl a little bit. When they're on their back, they may look like they're trying to ride a bike. The baby's arms and legs are still pretty jerky at this point. In fact, they probably don't even know that they're attached to their body. You may find that when you come towards your baby with a bottle or the breast, your baby will just instinctively know to open their mouths. One fun newborn reflex to do is something called the Grasp reflex. Where you put your finger inside your baby's palm and your baby will instinctively latch on and grab your finger. You may even have to use another hand to pry your finger out of their grasp. These are some fun and interesting things to look for during your baby's second month of life.
Your 2-month-old now has better head control, and you can find that your 2-month-old will keep their head straight up without flopping to one side. You can now put your 2-month-old on their belly, and they'll actually push themselves up. Onto their elbows even at this point. Whereas in the first month the fists are clenched like this, in the two month period, you'll feel like you baby's hands are more open at rest. Vision is now far moved developed at two months, your baby can now track an object. As you move it along their face. Your baby is now making a lot more noises. They'll be cooing which is sounds without consonants and there will be some gurgling. But the greatest thing about the 2 month old is that they will now give you a real smile but you may have to work a little to get this rewarding grin. These are some fun and interesting things to look for during the third month. Parents. For more info about baby milestones, go to parents.com/baby/development
Sounds will interest your four-month-old a whole lot more, and she'll be making more sounds of her own.
