A 3-month-old’s developmental milestones
It has been three months since you’ve given birth. As you recover from childbirth, your three-month-old is also becoming more energetic and growing bigger every day. By this time, she can settle into a schedule, giving you more time to rest and heal. Below are some of the most common developmental milestones seen in a three-month-old child.
At around three months old, a baby may sit down with your assistance. She has better control of her head and loves to move around. She loves to try rolling from her tummy to her back. During tummy time, she can also slightly lift her head and even push up on her hands.
A three-month-old baby can turn her head at the sound of her parents’ voice. You will also notice she often smiles, again upon hearing her loved ones’ voice. She also loves to smile for pleasure, which most child psychologists refer to as a social smile.
She also loves looking at brightly colored objects, the same as catching her reflection in the mirror.
Your three-month-old baby now gives you the favor to sleep longer and better. She can now sleep for at least six hours a night. She may wail a few for food or diaper change, then she will again go back to her sleep.
During the day, she may take a few naps of about one 1/2 to two hours each day.
Aside from crying to communicate her fear, hunger, or anxiety, she also loves to make sounds. The easiest he can do are “ah” and “oh.” It is prudent then that you often communicate with your baby so she may hear more sounds. She loves listening to anything you say. She may even extend her arms to connect with you.
