Baby Activities 0-3 Months
You will probably find that there’s not a lot of time for baby activities at 0-3 months old. Babies at this age spend most of their time sleeping, feeding, having their nappy changed, and having lots of cuddles! I also know just how tough the first 3 months with a newborn are. So even completing just one of the activities is a bonus!
Some of the developmental milestones you can expect your baby to reach at 0-3 months include:
- Lifts their head when on tummy
- Responds to sound
- Stares at faces
- Gurgles and coos
- Follows faces and objects when near their face
- Holds head steady
- Recognises your face
Remember that this is just a guide. It’s important to remember that all babies develop differently and learn at their own pace. Don’t worry if there are things on the list that your baby isn’t doing yet. They will get there in their own time! However, if you do have any concerns about your baby’s development, please seek advice from a health professional.
Take a look at my 0-3 month baby activities below for some ideas of how you can help your baby reach their milestones. They focus heavily on interaction because talking to your baby helps to strengthen your bond. They also find it soothing.
When carrying out baby activities at any age/stage, I recommend getting down on the floor with them as they will find it reassuring. Giving them lots of opportunities to be on the floor and also giving them tummy time will help them to become strong and will encourage exploration. Babies at this age can quickly become overstimulated. So make sure you give them a break if they are showing signs of tiredness or fussiness.
