What to Expect in the First Three Months

Case of Baby Blues

When babies are first born, their physical movements are actually all either reflex or involuntary. While they will cry if they’re hungry or tired, their crying is not in fact deliberate. They don’t cry yet cry to serve a purpose. Newborns don’t yet realise that someone is caring for them and they don’t recognise themselves as an individual. It is the act of caring for them and responding promptly to their crying that helps them to understand that you are there to look after them.

Young babies are constantly learning and can be overwhelmed by too many inputs at the same time. They are initially drawn to lights, the primary colours and simple patterns. They quickly learn their parents’ voice and faces, which is why it’s important to look into their eyes and talk to them regularly right from the start. And parents should never feel worried if babies turn away from them, as this is simply a sign that they are exhausted from so much interaction.

A few milestones to be look for include:

  • By about three months they learn other faces and objects, such as a special toy
  • By around two months they start to lift their head and kick their legs while lying on their stomach
  • Usually in their third month they will begin to wave their hands and feet in the air, as well as wave at their parents or objects they want
  • At around two months they usually start to listen to what you say and make noises in response

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • Breast milk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.
