How your 3-month-old might play now

    • He recognizes Mommy and is interested in others' faces
    • She knows if something is familiar
    • Lying on his tummy, he can support himself on his elbows and raise his chest
    • She turns her head toward a sound and watches you as you speak
    • When toys are placed in his hand, he can grasp them and wave them around
    • She can swipe at an object but does not reach for it

      Help your baby learn more:

        • Demonstrate activities your baby can't reach yet—playing music or making something rattle or move.
        • Help your baby learn the connection between actions and reactions. Put baby's hand or foot within reach of the dangling toys. From there, it's bound to happen: baby's hand or foot will connect and activate a fun response from the toy!
        • Encourage your child to explore by pointing out colorful activities and describing features. To build memory skills, switch the position of dangling toys from time to time; your baby is likely to notice the change.

        Security & Happiness Sensory

      Help your baby learn more:

        • Music, please. Extend the benefits offered by a mobile's music by playing music for baby at other times of the day and in different settings.
        • Sing or hum along. You'll find that as you do, your baby becomes more vocal too.
        • What do you see? Try looking at the mobile from baby's point of view. Change its position once in a while, or change your baby's position so she gets a new view.
        • Make the connection. Right from the start, your baby will listen to and respond to your voice. Use this connection to point things out about the mobile—the colors, the movement, the characters that dangle from it.

      Tummy-Time Play

      Babies spend most of their time on their backs. Between daytime naps and nighttime sleep, they’re in that position for many hours. That’s in part due to the “Back to Sleep” campaign which, starting in the early 1990s, urged parents to place babies Read More
