The Senses and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
Your baby is experiencing the first sights, sounds, and smells of the world through all five senses. What are your baby's responses to light, noise, touch, and familiar faces?
Feeding Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
Whether you've chosen to breastfeed or bottle-feed your baby, your infant will let you know when it's time to eat.
Medical Care and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
You probably have lots of questions about your baby's health. When should you call the doctor, and what medical care should you expect for your baby at this age?
Movement, Coordination, and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
The reflexes they had just after birth start to disappear as babies this age gain more control over movements and interact more with their environment.
Communication and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
Your baby is learning to communicate through facial expressions like smiling or frowning as well as crying, squealing, babbling, and laughing. And those sounds are early attempts to speak!
Sleep and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
Is your baby sleeping through the night yet? This is the age when most infants are able to sleep through the night - even if that means only 5 hours!
Learning, Play, and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
After learning to recognize your voice, your face, and your touch, your baby will start responding more to you during these months and even give you a smile!
How to Talk to Your Child's Doctor
Building a relationship with your child's doctor requires communication and reasonable expectations.
Growth and Your 1- to 3-Month-Old
Like newborns, most babies continue to grow quickly in weight and length during the first few months of life.
