Newborn Development

Production of newborns at 0-1 month: What happens
Cuddling, going to sleep, eating. In the first few months, that is what it’s all about.

When you spend time together every day, your baby is still learning a lot. When she sees, senses and touches the world around her, her brain is expanding and changing.

It could be possible for your baby to watch your expression with his eyes. Faces are the most interesting thing for your baby around this age. He’ll also want to look at toys like red, black and white with contrasting colors. With faces or shapes such as swirls or tests, your baby will love toys.

Your one-month-old can hear you and know your voice, but occasionally when she hears you or another echo, she might startle you.

Although eye contact is one way your baby shows you he needs your love, more by crying, your baby interacts with you. He’ll scream, for instance, or make throaty noises if he wants you.

Your baby could momentarily raise her head when she’s lying on her tummy, or when she’s lying on her back, turn it sideways. It encourages her to see where you are and what’s around you.

Your kid will grab your finger sometimes, but he’ll keep his hands in a close fist most of the time.

Supporting the growth of newborns at 0-1 months
Here are a few easy things that you can do to assist the growth of your newborn at this age:

Spend time with your baby: try to read stories and tell them, speak and sing. Every day, doing these stuff also makes your baby get acquainted with sounds and words. This, in essence, strengthens language and communication skills that as she is older she will need.
Look at the eyes of your infant: If your baby smiles at you, look back. For bonding with your kids, this is important. When your baby turns down, he shows you that he has had enough and wants some rest.
Smile at your kids: Anytime your child sees you smile, her body releases natural chemicals. This makes her feel secure, safe and healthy. It also helps to create a bond with you.
Play with your newborn: it stimulates the brain of your infant to develop and allows him to learn about the world. It also makes the relationship between the two of you deeper.
Offer your baby tummy time: 1-5 minutes of play per day on her tummy strengthens the resilience of your baby’s head, spine, and upper body. When she’s bigger, the baby uses these muscles to raise her chin, crawl and pull herself up to stand. During tummy time, please watch the baby and lay her to sleep on her stomach.
Try baby massage: a perfect way to connect with your baby is to massage the baby. When the baby is cranky, it can also be calming and soothing.
Your child may not want to do these things often, such as being too sleepy or starving, for instance. To let you know when he’s had enough and what he wants, he’ll use special baby cues.

The screaming of newborns and how to respond
You’ll know that your baby is crying sometimes. She is more relaxed and healthy when you respond to screaming, for example, by feeding your baby if she is hungry.

You may not know why your baby is crying often, but it’s always necessary to console him. By picking him up, cuddling him or talking to him in a soothing voice, you can’t spoil your son.

Yet you may feel irritated, angry or exhausted by lots of crying. It’s all right to take a little time off before you feel calmer. Place your baby like a cot in a quiet spot, or ask someone else to keep her for a bit. Try going to another place to take a deep breath or texting a family member or acquaintance to talk about problems.

Never let a baby shake. It will cause bleeding and probably irreversible brain injury within the brain.

It’s OK to ask for assistance. If the pressures of caring for your kid make you feel exhausted, call your nearest Parentline. You will want to try our ideas for coping with frustration, anxiety and tension as well.

A newborn’s parenting
You and your baby are going to learn a little more about each other each day. You can hear more about what he wants and how you will fulfill these needs as your baby grows and learns.

You’re still learning as a mom. Feeling secure in what you feel is OK. And it’s also OK to admit that there’s anything you don’t know and ask questions or get support.

An significant part of becoming a mom is your own physical and emotional wellbeing. You might forget or run out of time to look after yourself while you’re focusing on looking after an infant. Yet biologically, intellectually and socially, caring for yourself will help your baby develop and prosper.

When to think about neonatal growth
If you have any questions or note that your one-month-old is: see your child and family wellbeing nurse or GP:

He’s moaning a lot and you’re concerned about that.
It doesn’t eat well,
For this age, he is very sleepy or sleeps a lot more than expected, which is more than around 16 hours a day.
Moving arms or legs is not
Does not react to bright light or see stuff, for example, does not follow your face with her eyes
Doesn’t make gurgling noises like

If you or your husband experience the effects of postnatal depression in women or postnatal depression in adults, you can also visit your child and family wellbeing nurse or GP. Symptoms of postnatal depression include, for no apparent cause, feeling depressed and crying, feeling irritable, having trouble concentrating, and feeling really nervous.

Production of newborns at 1-2 months: What happens
Most babies would scream and fuss more about this time. This is a standard production aspect and will pass in time. It normally peaks at about 6-8 weeks and continues to plateau at about 12-16 weeks.

Your baby has already made a good connection with you, knowing you and listening to your voice and smile. She already began to grin when she was about six weeks old.

Around 45 cm away, your baby can see things. He will watch you walk around now, watching you from side to side as well as up and down through his feet.

Your two-month-old woman is more sensitive to the sound, and when you talk to her, she’ll smile at you. She’s even more animated, gurgling and making sounds like ‘a’ or ‘o’ from a single vowel.

It’s getting easier for your baby to run. You could see him raise his head and move it from side to side while he is on his tummy. Maybe your child will also raise his chest off the ground.

Your baby has already found out she has hands and toes! She’ll have her hands free all the time by now and she’ll be able to hang onto a rattle if you place it in her lap. Your baby could keep both hands together as well.

Your baby could open his mouth when he sees the breast or the bottle when it’s time for eating.

Spend time with your baby: try to read stories and tell them, speak and sing. Every day, doing these stuff also makes your baby get acquainted with sounds and words. In comparison, this provides vocabulary and communication skills that your child will use as she’s older.
Smile at your kids: Anytime your child sees you smile, his body releases natural chemicals. This makes him feel comfortable, confident and good. It also allows the brain to grow and connect to you.
Play with your newborn: it stimulates the brain of your infant to develop and allows her to learn about the world. It also makes the relationship between the two of you deeper.
Give your baby tummy time: 1-5 minutes of play every day on his tummy strengthens the resilience of your baby’s back, neck and upper body.

Production of newborns at 2-3 months: What happens
Your baby understands at 2-3 months that voices and faces go together, particularly yours. It’s because she has developed a deep commitment to you. With her eyes, she could follow you and enjoy smiling at you. She might also resonate with you as you talk to her.

Your baby begins to look at items like little blocks and toys more closely, and his eyes will track objects going above his head in a circle or in an arc.

Your infant may whine and scream more at this time. This is a natural part of growth and will pass with time. Each infant is different, but at about 6-8 weeks, screaming and fussing usually peaks and tends to relax around 12-16 weeks.

Your baby is beginning to connect in different ways with you. Her crying when she’s starving, for instance, may be different from when she’s in pain. To want to say you things too, she’ll always use facial gestures and body language. Maybe your baby will start laughing. She could even start cooing in three months.

Your baby could be displaying emotions such as curiosity, disgust, distress, and pleasure by now.

Your infant would definitely be able to place his hands together. Much of the time now, his hands are open, and he loves opening and closing them. He then continues using his hands and eyes together, maybe even aiming for your face or swinging his hands towards an object.

She can rest on her forearms or roll to her side while your baby is on her tummy. When she’s on her tummy or back, she might spread her legs and kick. She could want to stand on her legs if you keep her in a standing posture, for example, on the floor or on your lap.

Supporting the growth of newborns within 2-3 months
Here are some very simple things you can do to help your baby grow at this time:

Play together: When you play with him, your kid feels loved and healthy. Try fun things like chatting, reading, singing songs like ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ and playing games like peekaboo, and you don’t need special toys.
Smile at your infant: When your child sees you smile, her body releases natural chemicals that make her healthy, happy and secure. It also creates a bond with you.
Offer your baby tummy time: spending 1-5 minutes playing each day on his tummy builds the resilience of the brain, neck and upper body of your baby. In order to raise his head, crawl and pull himself up to stand when he’s older, your kid wants these muscles. During tummy time, please watch the baby and lay him to sleep on his back.
