Your baby is beginning to be much more responsive now. You will notice that she enjoys having conversations with you. The importance of eye con-tact is something your baby has now learnt.


Remember to talk to your baby as you bath and dry him. It is through these conversations that your baby will learn about his body parts. See here how Christopher is also learning many other skills such as taking turns and attending to the same thing at the same time.


Like baby Christopher, your baby is now able to hold his head up for short periods as his muscles are getting stronger.


To encourage listening, looking and touching sit your baby in a reclining chair, and introduce brightly coloured noise makers like rattles. Hold the toy close enough so he might accidently touch it.


Feeding is a special time. Your baby can feel your heart beat, the warmth of your body and can clearly see your face.
