Milestones achieved during The First Three Months

Keeping track on how your baby develop is more than just logging in their height and weight. There are other milestones that you can keep a look out. Some of these milestones could be signs of emerging motor and language skills.

All babies reach milestones on their own developmental time line. If your baby seems not to have reached one or more of these milestones, rest assured, he or she probably will very soon. In this article, we will introduce some basic skills that most babies can achieve and some advance skills that you can look out for in your ‘over-achiever’ child.  

One month

At the one month mark, most babies should have developed sufficient neck muscle to be able to lift their head up. They should be responding to all kinds of sound, not just when you call out their name. At times, they will just stare at faces. By doing so, they are developing their social spectrum as they  try to recognize and distinguish familiar faces from the unfamiliar ones. Babies have high ability to represent and recognize faces based on various distinguishing features like curvatures, eyes and nose.

For the faster learner, they are able to follow objects at this age. Some might even react to you by smiling or laughing!

Two months

The second month will be more interesting as babies should be able to vocalize sounds, such as gurgling and cooing. Most of them should be able to follow objects now and can hold their head up for short period.  They will also be able to lie on their stomach, lift head 45 degree.

Advanced skills would be to smile or laugh responsively,. Some might even be able to lift their head and shoulder!

Third month

For the third month, you can expect a livelier baby who will smile and laugh at your slightest actions. Now, they should be able to hold their head steady and can recognise your face and even your scent! Some babies might be able to recognise voices and are strong enough to push themselves up and reach for nearby objects. They are now learning to roll over too.


All babies develop at their own pace but every child should do certain tasks by a certain age. Parents need not be too worried if their child is unable to exhibit the ability to do the more advance skills at their current age. As a parent, you can play an important role in helping ensure that your child is on track.

Create a safe environment for your baby to grow up in. When a baby feels stress, the brain will respond by releasing hormone, which activates the body’s stress response. Small doses of stress response is healthy, but prolonged exposure will slow down brain development and physical growth. This mean that parents should respond every time their child cry. Also, creating a routine will help babies feel safe.

Another way parent can help facilitate development in their child would be by providing enriching experiences. The brain learns best when it is challenged with new information and then relates the new information to what the child already knows. By doing so, the brain can strengthen old connection while making new ones at the same time. This can be done so by talking, reading, singing and even playing with your baby. Taking your baby out and showing them the world will help the baby. However, don’t overstimulate the baby as it might cause frustration and thus leading to stress.

Child development is a natural process and it all depends on individual. Parents can do their part and help with this development, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to whether your child is able to pick it up. This article provides some milestones that you can take note and be sure that your child is on the right track. However, if you are worried about the child’s development, do make an appointment with your doctor.
