Can you believe your little one is already three FULL months old? Nope, didn’t think so. If you take a look back through the last few months of pictures on your camera, you’ll probable be surprised at just how much he or she has grown and developed.
At three months old, your child is probably starting to becomes a little bit more chatty through trying to imitate what he or she is hearing and will lighten up every room with those adorable little baby smiles.
As you go about your day, try to communicate more with your baby. He or she obviously can’t understand what you’re saying, whether you’re cleaning a room or making a meal, but doing a play-by-play of your activities – in simple baby talk – will actually help your little one learn to talk!
If you took our advice and took a look back at how much your little one has grown over the past three months and find it hard it hard to believe that in such a short amount of time your little boy or girl has changed that much, you’ll probably not be prepared for the growth spurt they comes this month. Yup, prepare to bust out a new age group of clothing, you’re probably going to need it.
In the past month, your baby has probably grown another one-and-a-half to two inches and gained the same amount of weight.
Your baby is going to continue to quickly develop those five senses. He or she will continue to make eye contact with you when you speak and will be able to follow things with their eyes. All of these are indicators that he or she is becoming a great communicator. He or she can even recognize your face now!
This month your baby should start to babble and mimic certain sounds, movements, and expressions. You’ll probably notice his or her little (or rather large!) personality coming out.
At three months, your baby will probably be able to lift him or herself up on their arms from the tummy time position. He or she will also be quite active in the flailing limb department. If he or she can hold heir head up, try letting him or her play in a baby jumper – but try to limit the time; prolonged time in a jumper can create hip problems.
He or she will also be able to grab on to things now. So, unpack the rattles and other handheld baby toys, now’s the time to play!
