Congratulations on officially becoming a dad!

Regardless of whether you’re a new father or a seasoned pro, having a new baby in the house is the beginning of an awesome new adventure that’s unlike anything else. Even if you’ve gone through this before, every baby is completely unique with his or her very own quirks and habits which will require getting used to.

If you thought raising a child would be all fun and games, you’re in for a bit of a surprise. Yes, you can have a lot of fun with your kids, but they also require a significant amount of attention, especially in their first year of life. Between the nearly constant dirty diapers, outfit changes, and seemingly endless feedings, newborn children are quite a handful.

Throughout the first year of your baby’s life, he or she is going to go through many significant milestones and big developmental changes. There’s a reason parents say their kids grow up too fast. To help you keep up with your baby’s development and to understand what to expect moving forward through the first year, we’ve broken it down month-by-month for you.
