Your Baby, Week 14

Baby pushing up

Let’s get physical! By the time your baby is three months old, many of her newborn reflexes have disappeared, and she is starting to gain more control of her body.

  • Your baby probably can raise her head and chest up in a little pushup when lying on her tummy.
  • She may stretch out her legs and kick, too.
  • At first, your baby’s hands were balled into little fists. Now, as her fingers unfurl, her hands are open enough to bat at your keys or other objects you dangle in front of her reach.

 

Consider hanging a mobile over your baby’s crib or changing table.
