4th Month


By this stage, a feeding schedule will be pretty much decided, with feeding taking place about five times a day.


Most babies can support their own heads now and can be held upright without becoming unsteady. Physical development has also improved, and they will try rolling over by themselves; some babies will even bounce on their feet if held with an adult's hands under their arms.

Caring for Your Baby

With baby sleeping through the night, patterns of daily life can be established. You can help do this by taking the baby out with you during the day and providing a quiet peaceful environment for him to sleep easily at night. As the baby will start picking up things and putting them in his mouth, make sure you don't forget to put dangerous things out of reach.
