MY BABY

0-6 MONTHS

The first steps in life

Infants should be exclusively breastfed - i.e. receive only breastmilk - for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth, development and health. "Exclusive breastfeeding" is defined as giving no other food or drink - not even water - except breastmilk. It does, however, allow the infant to receive oral rehydration salts (ORS), drops and syrups (vitamins, minerals and medicines). Breastmilk is the ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants. If this is not an option Unimilk provides a great alternative.

The baby quickly adjusts to the outside world, but spends his time being fed or sleeping. He recognizes his mother’s face at this stage and would at certain times also try to mimic the expressions.

THE NEW BORN

ONE MONTH OLD

One month old baby becomes receptive to his surroundings. He may lift his head for short intervals if held upright as the neck muscles are becoming stronger. His hearing and vision is improving and he starts noticing nearby objects. The baby may also respond to colourful toys or a voice closer to him.

You will be able to receive a beaming and a toothless smile from your baby. He would become more active and will respond to your funny gestures. His curiosity against objects increases as he starts touching the objects and colour difference becomes clearer to him.

TWO MONTHS OLD

THREE MONTHS OLD

A three-month old baby becomes more mobile and he may roll over to reach out to different things. When sitting with a support or when held upright the baby can now hold his head steady. By three months the baby can easily use his hands to grasp your finger tightly.

At fourth month the baby is keen on exploring his surroundings and can easily be distracted by the nearby activities. At this stage the baby’s brain and his vision are developing and he can easily differentiate between different colours.

FOUR MONTHS OLD

FIVE MONTHS OLD

By this time, your baby starts making some noises and can easily communicate with you. At this stage, he is practicing and may make razzing sounds. He takes interest in learning more about the language and can even recognize his own name. A five-month old baby can even sit for a while without help.

Baby’s movements become more noticeable as he rolls over, sit on his own or lift his arms when you try to pick him up. He can now use his fingers to pick up toys and other objects. He can speak certain words by now and the teething process also starts.

FOUR MONTHS OLD
