Baby Development

Baby development month by month
Welcoming your baby into your family has probably changed your life.
The early weeks of parenting can be a very one sided affair, with lots of input and not much feedback from babies to let their parents know how they’re faring.
The magic 3 month period has arrived and with it a whole new range of developmental changes for your baby.
Your baby is really becoming their own little person at 4 months and will be showing you they truly have their own unique personality.
Something really starts to become obvious by around 5 months, when babies love to socialise and spend time interacting with other people.
Milestones and Behaviour
Watching your little one develop is an amazing and often highly entertaining experience, especially for first-time mums and dads.
From nine to eleven months, babies are in basic training for walking.
While parents are understandably excited to hear their baby’s first words, psychologists say that words aren’t the only indication of language development.
Your baby might be showing an increasingly good memory that will help her anticipate events and play a role in her developing personality.
One of the signs of your baby’s good health is his growth.
