What should I expect during my baby's 3rd month?


Your baby's almost 3 months old! Every day, they gain more control over their rapidly growing body.

Here are some things your baby may be doing by now:

  • Keeping their hands open more often (unlike that newborn clenched fist) and carefully opening and closing them
  • Showing some head control when upright, trying to push up on their arms, lifting their head, neck, and chest when lying on their tummy
  • Socializing more with their smiling, gurgling, cooing, and even showing an interest in other children
