0-3 Months newborn baby development: what to expect
Your newborn development begins in the womb. In the first few months of pregnancy, the fetus begins to mature along with the development of various bodily systems, which later help your child throughout his or her life.
In the first few months after birth, you and your newborn baby experience many rapid and exciting changes together.
When your baby is born, in a healthy birth, and on or around his due date, in the first three months you can expect to see him successfully laying on his stomach, lifting his head as he lays on his stomach, beginning to establish eye contact, beginning to make some sounds, and releasing the primitive reflexes that he was born with. These reflexes determine sensomotoric developments, and we expect that at around ages 3 to 4 months these reflexes will leave his system.
In this stage of your baby’s life, we will focus on creating a womb-like environment that will allow your newborn baby a step-by-step transition from his mother’s womb to the outside world.
Every baby has his own developmental pace, and it’s important that we, as parents, help him pave his path by supporting and encouraging him to pass the first few levels of his growth in order to fulfill his full developmental potential.
Each phase is built off of the last. Your baby must pass each stage in his development in order to successfully grow, and that is why it is so important to begin this learning process from the very first days of your baby’s life.
With BabyPillars’ 0-3 months baby development video tutorials we will focus on: comfortable holding positions, coping with crying, stomach aches, and gas, lying on the stomach, and lifting the head, communication with your newborn baby, and so much more.
These videos will guide parents in dealing with the dramatic change of welcoming a new baby into your life, whether your first child, or another brother or sister that has joined your family. We are here to build your confidence in caring for your newborn baby and providing the tools that will enrich and help complete the various activities that will lead your baby to learn each phase of development and to realize your baby’s true developmental potential
Learning these stages is the base for reaching additional milestones such as rolling over, eye contact, focusing eyesight, and more!
