    1 Month

    A lot can change in just four weeks, as your baby begins to grow in strength and size. Their eyesight is improving and they may even be able to give you a smile. This rapid development brings a changing appetite which means any feeding routine you might be settling into can go straight out of the window – but only for a short time, as your baby’s appetite should settle back down after a week or so. This article looks at the changes your baby is going through; their physical growth, the new noises they may begin to make and the new things they’ll be able to see as their sight improves. We’ll also look at ways in which you can strengthen the bond you’ve developed.

    2 Month

    Having lost that ‘newborn’ look, at 2 months you’ll start to see your baby’s personality developing. You’ll be able to see them growing bigger and stronger by the day – the strength in their hands and neck will increase and they’ll become more alert. It’s still a good idea to feed your baby when they’re hungry rather than forcing a routine because, with so much development, your baby’s appetite is ever changing.

    Yet there are also other changes afoot; ones that you can’t necessarily measure with a set of scales or a ruler. Your baby is now better at communicating and finds your voice and your touch the most comforting of all. Read about all of these exciting changes in more detail.

    Your bright, alert, 3 month old baby is getting more responsive by the day and their individual personality will be starting to shine through.

Remember, weaning should ideally begin at 6 months and 17 weeks at the very earliest.

    By providing the right kind of mental and physical stimulation, you can encourage your baby to continue developing to the best of their ability. Read more about the sensory changes that are occurring at 3 months, and how forms of play and stimulation will help to engage these new skills.

    4-6 Months

    A lot can happen from 4 to 6 months – rolling over, learning to sit up, trying solids for the first time and even forming first words.

    Read more about what you can expect in the coming months; your baby is now able to learn from you, which is especially important for speech development. They’ll soon be able to sit up too, which will give them the independence to support themselves.
