Information & Tips for Babies and Mums

1 - 4  Months

Emotion Your baby begins to feel the joy of being cradled and soothed, and the comfort of being cuddled. When you speak to him, he'll respond with a smile, or babble "ah" or "ooh", beginning a delightful conversation with you.
Body Your baby gradually gains some control of his head movements. By the time he is 3 months old, he should be able to lift his head briefly when lying on his tummy. He stretches out his hands to reach for the items he sees, and begins to place toys into his mouth. Motor skills for eye-hand coordination increases.
Pee Pee intervals become longer. Your baby may cry or wake up from his sleep when he wants to pee. Crying becomes a possible signal for pee.
Poo

Your baby's poo is wet like water when he is 1 to 2 months old. The amount for each poo is small. The frequency depends on individual babies. There are babies who poo up to 10 times a day while others poo only once.
There are also differences in the frequency and poo colour between breastfed and formula-fed babies. If your baby is on formula milk, he tends to poo less frequently.
When your baby is about 3 months old, the texture of the poo will become sticky and tar-like. The frequency will also decrease. Some babies tend to be constipated. Though your baby may not poo every day, as long as the poo passes out smoothly, there is no cause for concern.
