Babies are born with the following reflexes:

  1. Stepping
  2. rooting
  3. Habituation

“Good news: All babies develop on their OWN timelines.”

Baby’s First Laugh:

http://www.whattoexpect.com/first-year/first-laugh/

“When to expect it: Many babies laugh out loud for the first time when they’re 3 or 4 months old, although the first laugh may come later for many other babies. Baby’s first laugh might be inspired by something as simple as seeing a favorite toy, pet or person (that would be you, Mom and Dad)”

More Milestones:

“Your role

  • Enjoy getting to know your baby: Cuddle her, talk to her, and learn how she signals when she’s sleepy or hungry. Be attentive and responsive. You can’t spoil a baby!
  • Give her plenty of tummy time from the start when she’s awake so she can strengthen her muscles. Encourage her to look at and reach for toys.
  • Make sure she gets plenty of time outside. Go for walks with her and take her to the park or playground. She’ll enjoy the outdoors, relaxing with you, and being around other children.
  • Get close and make eye contact with your baby when you talksing, and read to her.
  • Play simple games when she’s alert and in the mood, such as peekaboo or mimicking her sounds.
  • Learn the signs that she’s had enough play and needs some down time.”
