Your Baby: Month 3 - Free baby stuff
  • He is learning through accidental discoveries
  • He can watch a mobile, and try to reach for it
  • He can show a bigger range of emotions, including fascination and boredom
  • He is increasingly alert and social, and fascinated with his hands and fingers

Oops, I Learned it Again

These days, a lot of your baby's learning processes come about by accident. He reaches out and bumps a toy that makes music. The next time he touches it, the same thing happens. So now he knows. In this way, he'll practice his visual, cognitive and motor skills over and over again.

Improving that Hand-Eye Coordination

By this point, the early reflexive behaviors like startling have faded away. Now his coordination is shaping up quite nicely. Especially when it comes to using his hands.

Babies think their hands are pretty amazing, which they are. He uses them to learn information about objects in his world. And believe it or not, he'll use them to hold a rattle this month, if only for a second. His first grasp will be like wearing a mitten. In a few months, he'll be able to use his thumb. Watch your hair. This little guy's a grabber.

Mr. Congeniality

Your baby's probably pretty pleased with himself these days. He's reached a new level of coordination, independence, playfulness and emotional response. He's probably eating and sleeping more regularly, and is starting to take real pleasure in the world around him. Which makes him a lot of fun to be around. Make the most of all those smiles, coos and playful expressions.

Thanks Enfamil for providing this information!
