When your baby reaches the
age of four months, things will
really start to happen fast. She is
growing and learning about her world. She is interested in everything
she sees or hears. She is
reaching for things and putting them in her mouth. This is how she learns
When she is feeding, she stops and plays with your clothes, or she looks at
other people in the room.
She may try to roll over. The more she tries, the better she can do it.
She smiles when she sees her parents and other people who care for her.
She may frown when she sees strangers. She babbles. She tries to imitate
your words as she makes sounds.
She may start sleeping at night for longer and longer periods of time. She
will love it when you sit on the floor and play with her. You can have a lot
of fun with your baby at this age.
The more you help her explore, the more she will reward you with smiles,
happy sounds and love. You can help her by playing with her, singing to her
and talking to her. Enjoy your baby as she grows and develops!
