At 2 months old, your baby is no longer a tiny newborn. Baby has started to open his or her eyes, smile at you, and move arms and legs. While it's exciting to see baby develop, there are also some challenges as baby isn’t sleeping through the night and may be colic.
At 4 months, your baby reaches a significant milestone, likely doubling their birth weight and sleeping longer at night. Other developments include interest in solid foods, consistent sleeping patterns, and the ability to reach and roll.
At 6 months old, your newborn becomes an active baby who can sit, smile, and even enjoy mashed foods! At this stage, they may also crawl, babble, respond to simple words like "no," reach for toys, sleep longer, and express basic emotions.
By the age of 9 months, your baby has a relatively consistent sleep schedule, is mostly sleeping through the night, eats a significant amount of solid food, can sit independently and crawl, and may even be starting to walk!
By the age of 12 months, baby is really starting to do more things independently, like crawling, walking with support from objects, eating solids with utensils, drinking out of a cup, and understanding simple words and commands.
