One Month

Spend time with your baby, up close. Why? She sees best now when
things are only 8 to 15 inches away. As her eyes are developing she'll
love focusing on faces. So when she's not sleeping, hold your face close
and feel free to coo away.



Two Months

Help your baby develop better hand movements and vision by
clapping his hands together and singing songs. Over time he'll try
imitating your movements and voice, developing hand-eye coordination and
language. Baby will also begin copying your expressions. Try holding
baby close and sticking out your tongue, opening your mouth wide, or
giving baby a big grin.



Three Months

Social, motor, and language skills are blossoming now. Baby will
show emotions by babbling happily when a bright toy appears, or grunting
and crying angrily when you take it away. And guess what -- baby's
ticklish now! The tickle reflex develops at about his fourteenth week.



Four Months

Social, motor, and language skills are blossoming now. Baby will
show emotions by babbling happily when a bright toy appears, or grunting
and crying angrily when you take it away. And guess what -- baby's
ticklish now! The tickle reflex develops at about his fourteenth week.



Five Months

Baby's eyes and ears are starting to work as well as yours do.
Baby is also beginning to babble, maybe saying dada and mama. Try
talking back and introducing simple words to help her learn how to
communicate. Repeat words and encourage baby when she tries to imitate
you. Start reading from books, pointing out objects as you say their
name.



Six Months

Soon baby will learn to sit up and move around. Get him moving by
placing him on his belly. Then put a toy on the floor and encourage him
to reach for it. Because babies this age put most everything in their
mouths, be sure toys are bigger than the inside of a toilet paper tube.
And be sure the house is baby-proofed.



Seven Months

Your baby's hand skills are developing further, especially the
pincer grasp. Stimulate her fine motor skills and coordination by
providing small, safe objects to pick up. Plastic measuring spoons or
small cups work well. Or sit outside and pick at the grass. At first
she'll grab handfuls, but then become fascinated with -- and try to
pluck up -- single blades.



Eight Months

Time to stimulate baby's sense of space and word use. First, try
giving baby toys that fit inside one another like pots and pans. Or try
asking baby, "Where's your nose?" and pointing to his nose. As you
repeat the game, adding body parts, it teaches baby the meaning of
words.



Nine Months

Baby may become fascinated with hinged objects and how they work.
Watch as she entertains herself with books that have stiff cardboard
pages, cabinet doors, boxes with flaps, or toys that pop open. As she
opens and closes a box or door -- maybe dozens of times -- she's
developing hand-eye coordination.



10 Months

Baby may love finding things that are hidden. Play "Where Did It
Go?" to help him develop fine motor skills and the concept of object
permanence -- that things don't go away when he can't see them. Hide a
brightly colored object under a scarf or beneath some sand in a sandbox.
Then put baby's hand over the object and help him uncover it. Soon
he'll find it without help



11 Months

Keep working on language skills with lots of games and songs.
Language skills develop through human interaction -- not through baby
DVDs or TV -- so talk to baby as often as you can. Tell her what you're
doing, ask questions, and use dramatic gestures and tones. She's
watching and catching on.



Your Baby's Development

Some babies talk early. Others crawl months before their peers.
All babies mature at their own pace. Slower development rarely signals
something is wrong with baby. If you have any worries, ask your
pediatrician. It's often just normal differences among children. So
relax and enjoy your baby's journey.



thanks...
