What’s It Like To Be Three Months Old?

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

How I grow

  • I don’t bob my head as much.
  • I keep my hands loosely open
    most of the time.
  • I will hold objects, but I will not
    reach for them.
  • I move my arms and legs a lot.
  • When held in a standing position,
    I can bear some weight on my
    legs.
  • When I’m on my tummy, I can
    hold my head up for 10 seconds or
    longer.
  • I touch my face with my hands.

How I talk

  • I gurgle, whimper and chuckle.
  • I don’t cry as much as I used to.
  • I squeal and make other sounds
    when you talk to me.

How I eat and sleep

  • I may have one feeding at night.
  • I may sleep through the night.
  • I may need a morning nap and an
    afternoon nap.

How I respond

  • When I see you, I turn my whole
    body to face you.
  • I turn my head toward the
    sounds of singing or talking.
  • I may stop or start crying
    depending on who is holding me.

How I understand

  • I’m beginning to remember
    things.
  • I’m beginning to recognize different
    people in my family.
