The first year of your new baby’s life is an amazing time. Within just 12 months, your baby will transform from a newborn who is totally dependent on you to a toddler who is starting to walk, talk, and exhibit the first signs of independence.
During the first month, your newborn is just getting used to this big, strange new world. And you are getting used to taking care of his many needs. Below are just a few of the changes you can expect to see during your child’s first month.
It’s important to remember that infants who were born prematurely won’t follow these baby milestones exactly. They will likely hit each milestone according to their due date, rather than on their birthday. Babies who were born a month early will probably take an extra month to catch up to their peers.
