October 31, 2013

All babies develop at different rates, reaching milestones on their own timeline and at their own speed. If your baby seems to be slow reaching one regarding the key milestones don and no. 39;t worry, she and no. 39;ll most likely get there soon. And she should be ahead in other skills.

For sure your baby and no. 39;s development week by week is normal – for her. If you have knowledge of real concerns, speak to your GP, but chances are you can be worrying unnecessarily and your baby shall reach all key milestones at her own pace. 39;s development week by week of her first six months shall probably fit, more or less, into this pattern:Month OneShe can: lift her head briefly when lying on her stomach, focus on a face or object, respond to soundsShe and no. 39;ll probably be able to: follow a moving object, look black and clean patternsMonth TwoShe can: respond to a sound, hold her head up for brief spells, follow objects with her eyes, coo, gurgle or humShe and no.

39;ll probably be able to: smile when you smile, hold her head up when on her stomach, manage her movements, grab objects voluntarily rather than instinctively. Month ThreeShe can: hold her head at a 45 degree angle for detailed periods when on her tummy, smile in response to a smile, recognise people, laugh out loudShe and no. 39;ll probably be able to: squeal with happiness, lift her head to a 90 degree angle when on her tummy, place her hands together, precisely follow an object moved from side to side in front of her, manage her movements even more. Month FourShe can: lift her head up 90 degrees when on her tummy and hold it there for longer, bear her mass on her legs while being held, respond to your chatter with coos and gurgles. 39;ll probably be able to: grasp things and reach for them, raise her chest supporting her mass with her arms when on her tummy and roll over in one direction.

Month FiveShe can: Tell the difference between bold colours, raise her chest supporting her mass with her arms when on her tummy, roll over, play with her hands and feet. 39;ll probably be able to: respond to new sounds, turn within the direction of voices, respond to her own name, blow raspberries. Month SixShe can: hold her head tough and straight with her body when pulled from her return into a sitting position, recognise many different sounds and voices and copy sounds. 39;ll probably be able to: sit without support, roll in most directions, imitate simple sounds like mama and dada.
