Baby Milestones By Month: How To Use?

Early on, it’s best to use the baby milestones by month and by day guide, which is a quick reference chart for keeping track of milestones. It is helpful to be aware of how much longer the baby has to go before he/she is due.

Baby Milestones By Month: The First Two Months

The first two months are a big period of time when the baby can do a lot of things, from having their first few teeth to crawling, standing and walking. With the assistance of a newborn video, it’s a good idea to keep track of your baby’s progress. Baby will be able to see the progress through the video, or you can capture it yourself by holding the baby’s head, and turning it from side to side. Recording a baby’s progress at home gives them their own milestones.

Learning To Stand

By eight months, the baby can sleep standing up, sleep lying down and can even stay awake for a few hours at a time. In the first year, babies grow so fast that it’s difficult to keep track of all the milestones.

The Very First Year

However, the baby has yet to talk and breathe, which will be brought on at four years old. Each month, the baby will grow by about three months. At one year, the baby is sitting up, walking, running, jumping and talking. In the sixth month, the baby can say their first few words. At eight months, the baby can have their first conversation, by eight months, the baby can dress themselves and can start to chew food.

By twelve weeks, the baby can put on and take off his/her pants. Finally, by fifteen weeks, the baby can roll over on his/her stomach. Once this is done, the baby should be able to lay on his/her back, turn around and see to it that the head is back. At thirty-six weeks, the baby is able to use the toilet on his/her own, hold his/her head up and hear some words.
