Three months – three months have passed so quickly and you are still thinking your dear baby has just arrived at your home. Suddenly you see he is getting to understand what is happening around him, he has now diminished a bit his dozing off bit every other minute. A whole new person is revealed within him to your delight.
His growing up – physical
You notice that your baby’s movements are nowadays more organized. He can’t control his hand properly though. He tends to get hold of everything that you have in your hand when you took him in your arms. He is up and awake to every sound he hears. He gazes at new things especially if it is colorful. He enjoys the world around him, responds to people’s talking to him by smiling at them or even laughing out loud! He often gets into unending giggles. Even he is learning slowly to make a way into the society! You wonder how. He is delighted when he makes one smile- the tactics of give and take policy.
But you observe that he gets startled or jumps when he hears something very noisy or when you are carrying him and you sit all of a sudden. This shows that he still feels insecure. This is due to his still weak nervous system. The reflexes that were notices when he was new-born have not disappeared even at this age.
Feeding your baby – now your baby is 3months old, you don’t have that much difficulty in feeding him as you used to have when he was new-born. Now it’s easier for you, the so difficult task is now a pleasure for you to do – your baby grinning at you when you are feeding him. Actually he has adapted himself to a feeding routine. His physical growth is so explicit at this age. But he is still not suitable for solid foods. So it is better to increase breast feeding. Nurse the young kid for 2/3 days.
Entertaining your baby- at the month of three, the baby does not need anything special to keep him entertained. You will see he himself is discovering new things in which he enjoys himself. Observe that he is getting to learn how to roll off the bed. So keep watch on him to avoid accident. When you lay him on a flat surface put one of your hands on him always.
Usually all the babies love to see someone around him. So spend time with him as much as possible. Talk to him. This way you will make him entertained. Your talking to him with intermittent smile and giggle will make him imitate your gestures.
This age is a sheer delight for your baby as well as you!
