Newborn

Developmental Milestones 

  • Begins to recognize familiar voices. 
  • Reacts to sounds by blinking, crying, or startling. 
  • Can lift head briefly while lying on stomach. 
  • Crying or fussing signals a need, such as being hungry, tired, hot or cold, having a dirty diaper, or wanting to be held. 

Parenting Tips 

  • Hold, cuddle, sing to, and rock your baby as much as possible. Every touch and sound helps to develop your baby’s brain. 
  • Respond to your baby’s cry. It’s not possible to spoil a baby this way. 
  • Make sure to get adequate sleep and eat well.
