Month-by-Month Development

Month-by-Month Development

The social development of your child is as important as its physical and intellectual development. Your child must be able to communicate and interact with other people. Every baby has a unique personality waiting to develop. This is a fascinating process.


"Man is a social animal", is an oft-repeated phrase. Every individual must learn to live in a society. At some point they will have to realize that the world does not revolve around them. Thus, the social development of your child is as important as its physical and intellectual development. Your child must be able to communicate and interact with other people. Every baby has a unique personality waiting to develop. Watching your baby grow, is like meeting a whole new person. Every baby has its likes and dislikes. Some are jolly, while others may not crack a smile. As your baby learns to express herself better, her personality will be revealed to you. The development of a baby from a passive creature into a social being is a fascinating process.

How will my baby behave when she is three months old

Your baby will display a liking for company and human contact. She will express her displeasure by crying when she is ignored or left alone. She will express pleasure when others are around by smiling, kicking her legs or waving her arms. She will turn around and look when people are speaking and smile when you speak to her. She will recognize familiar faces and react towards strangers by crying or turning away.

From four to six months

Your baby will focus on faces and follow a person with her eyes when he walks away. She will lift her hands in a gesture indicating that you should pick her up. She will laugh when you pay attention to her and play with her. Your baby will be able to differentiate between a smile and a scolding voice. She will smile at familiar people and show visible signs of fear towards strangers. At six months, your baby will become more interactive, pulling the hair of the person holding her, rubbing noses with them or patting their faces. 

From seven months to a year

Your baby will begin to imitate speech sounds and gestures. She will desist from whatever she is doing when you say "no." She will become more clingy at this stage and express fear and dislike of strangers by rushing to your side or crying.

we have a grandson who has been sitting up since four months and can say a few words; he is five and a half months old and is almost crawling. he gives hugs and kisses and sits through story hour. do you have any views on how to keep him busy as he grows older. he crys to have books read to him as well; most people since he is big for his age as well think he is older. he also likes having other children around and hands the toys to them. could you tell me more about a child like him. is he a gifted child or just doing things early.
