Baby Development at 4 Months (Video)


There are lots of things to look forward to during your baby's first year. Here are some exciting milestones to expect from your baby during month four.


In month four, your little one is much more alert. His or her motor skills are most likely improving. Your child may grab more items like stuffed animals, your hand or hair, or anything that is shiny and catches his or her eye. Be sure not to leave anything lying around that is too small that he or she could choke on.

By this time, your little one is noticing the things going on in the world. He or she is attempting to communicate with you through coos and laughter. Your baby may also realize that you respond when he or she cries or smiles.

Now is a good time to try and communicate with your infant with your voice and facial expressions.
