At one month old:

  • I like to look at black and white colors and patterns more than at
    other colors.
  • I roll part of the way from my back to my side.
  • I keep my hands or fingers slightly open most of the time.
  • Sometimes I root around and try to suck, even when Iím not feeding.
  • I make some throaty or gurgling sounds.
  • I need you to protect the soft spot on the top of my head.
  • I cry when I am hungry, wet or tired, or when I want to be held.
  • I may smile at you when I see you or hear you.
  • I make eye contact with you.
  • Loud noises, bright lights or rough handling scare me.
  • Iím often fussy in the evenings.
  • I turn my head sideways when Iím on my stomach.
  • My head wobbles if you donít hold it. I need you to put your hand
    behind my head and neck.
  • I have learned that I will be fed when I am hungry.
