3rd Month


Your baby's feeding pattern will be more settled, with feeding during the day taking place every 3 to 4 hours, and with some babies going through the night without a feed. On average babies will be feeding 5 or 6 times a day. Be sure to give your baby all the breast milk that he wants.


DYour baby's expressions become more and more clearly defined during this time. When you call his name and play together, you can see his pleasure in the face and he may giggle. While this will vary from baby to baby, sometimes if he has a good feed before going to sleep at night, he will sleep right through to the morning.

Caring for Your Baby

Once the baby is able to support his own head, it is ok to hold him upright for a longer time. With the help of a baby carrier, it should be possible to take the baby out shopping for a short time or for a walk.
