How Your Baby Develops? (Newborn)


Once you have your newborn at home, they just seem to stare blankly at you and they sleep all the time. They can move their heads from sided to side but barely can lift it. They just eat, sleep, "poo" and "pee". Sometimes it is frustrating for parents because the baby does not seem to recognize your presence but needs you all the time for its basic needs,

Nursing babies usually feed every 2-3 hours. Formula fed babies anywhere from 2-4 ounces every 3-4 hours. Bigger babies eat more. Bowel movement usually one every diaper change wet diapers are approximately 6-8 times a day.

  • moro reflex, both arms and legs will flail symmetrically and sometimes they will cry
  • they can smile spontaneously but not specifically
  • they move their head from side to side on prone position

this is the first of a series on discussion of development at different ages of your baby
