wide smile it lasted only a few seconds

variety of objects good choices include

plastic toys and softballs

when will my baby start sleeping through
02:10
the night if your baby is sleeping
02:12
through the night now you’re one of the
02:14
lucky few most babies will still need at
02:17
least one fee
02:18
between midnight and 6 a.m. but the good
02:21
news is he should be sleeping for longer
02:23
stretches and staying awake for longer
02:25
periods of time your baby will probably
02:28
have 2 to 4 long sleeps and he may be
02:31
awake for up to 10 hours during the day

02:42
love colorful Mobile’s and toys dangling
02:45
just above him and he may gaze at them
02:47
spellbound
02:48
he may even attempt to bet at them with
02:50
a closed fist and wriggle his arms and
02:53
legs to show his delight by now your
02:56
baby will be coordinating his movements
02:58
better you will notice that the jerky
03:00
arm and leg movements of his newborn
03:02
days are becoming smoother your 2 month
03:05
old has a strong grasp but he hasn’t got
03:07
the hang of letting go yet watch out if
03:10
your baby grabs your hair you may find
03:12
it difficult to escape his wonderfully
03:14
tight grip what can I expect at my
03:17
baby’s doctor appointment your baby will
03:20
most probably have a doctor’s visit at 6
03:23
to 8 weeks the checkup will be similar
03:26
to the newborn tests and check your baby
03:28
head at birth your doctor will usually
03:33
weigh and measure your baby’s length and
03:35
head circumference check your baby’s
03:38
eyes hips heart and genitals ask you
03:42
about how your baby is feeding and
03:43
growing offer the vaccine scheduled for
03:46
this time is my baby developing normally
03:50
each baby is unique and meets physical
03:52
milestones at their own pace these are
03:55
simply guidelines to what your baby has
03:57
the potential to do if not right now
04:00
then soon if your baby was born
04:03
prematurely before 37 weeks of pregnancy
04:06
you’ll probably find that he needs more
04:08
time before he can do the same things as
04:11
other babies his age that’s why most
04:13
babies born prematurely are given to
04:16
ages by their doctor’s chronological age
04:19
which is calculated from your babies
04:21
date of birth corrected age which is
04:24
calculated from your baby’s due date
04:27
you should measure your premature babies
04:29
development against his corrected age
04:31
not his actual date of birth your doctor
04:35
will assess your premature baby’s
04:36
development from the time he should have
04:38
been born and evaluate his skills
04:40
accordingly find out more about how your
04:43
baby is growing this month if you have
