Baby Development Learn everything you need to know about your 4 month old baby. Track important developments and milestones such as talking, walking, growth, memory & more. Growth and Physical Development: Steady and Strong Your 4-month-old baby is probably continuing his fast pace of growth (about 1 to 1 ¼ pounds per month), but remember that a steady rate of growth is more important than any specific gains in weight or length. Your 4-month-old baby and food All your baby needs is milk for their first six months and ideally that should be breastmilk. If you’re exclusively breastfeeding your little one should have a daily vitamin D supplement (8.5 to 10 micrograms).

Physical developments to expect from your 4-month-old baby. When to be concerned about your 4-month old baby’s development. I’m a big believer that you know your baby best and if you have a feeling something isn’t quite right, trust your gut and talk to your doctor. And, consider getting a second opinion, if necessary. I have worked with families who.

Your 4-Month-Old Baby’s Growth A 4-month-old baby will still be on a liquid-only (or mostly) diet. Some parents choose to begin solids at the 4-month mark, but most doctors recommend waiting until baby is. How your child plays, learns, speaks, acts, and moves offers important clues about your child’s development. Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Check the milestones your child has reached by the end of 4 months by completing a checklist with CDC’s free Milestone Tracker mobile app.

When your baby turns away, closes his or her eyes, or gets fussy, take a break. Even babies need space. Get to know your baby’s unique personality, temperament, likes and dislikes.

Responding to your baby’s needs will help you continue to build your baby’s trust in you.

  • My baby girl is 3 month and 24 days old she is put weight on her toes mostly left foot toes.. What should i do plz recommend me some thing i used to mssag her on daily routine

  • My baby has two tinnie bottom teeth, she’s been babbling since she was 1 and a half month old, can move a lot while doing tummy time, stretch and grab a toy then loose interest after she puts it in her mouth. She puts herself to sleep now and sleeps all night. But she has stopped feeding as before so I’m worried. She’s 3 months and 2 weeks old, how do I get her to feed more, she’s exclusively breastfed.

  • Another fab video Sophie! It’s great to know my 4 month old is hitting all of these milestones and I’m sure this is in part due to all of the activities we’ve learnt from your baby classes ❤️ thank you! Xx

  • This video is TERRIBLE. Misinformation, unrealistic expectations and unsafe play suggestions (piggy back rides for a 4 month old?)….

  • This video is dangerous. Giving a 4 month old a piggy back ride could lead to great harm or even death. The author of this video should take the video down immediately.

  • Crawling?? What the hell ��
    I’m a mother of 3 month baby girl she just entered in 4 month and now she able to sit with support. She gets fussy at her tummy time only 5 mints. Something is wrong with the video.

  • Sleeping through the night varies from baby to baby. Pls don’t spread wrong facts. Its not a definite thing that they can sleep for 8 hrs without being fed. They sometimes do the sleep feeding. I m a mom of a 14 month old boy.

  • Thanks for watching everyone! You can find the month-by-month v series playlist here:

  • My daughter started doin all of this at 2 months except crawling, she would always lift her self up into a crunch position when i put her in her rocker & even when i lay her down on the bed at just 2 months, n she’s 4 as of today n sits on her own, she stands perfectly with support for longg too… when she was only 10 days old she rolled from back to side, As for the sleeping, she’ll only nap once during the day, n wake up twice at night for a feeding.

  • I have a 13 week old and she’s drooling sooooo much and we felt in her mouth the other day and felt 3 tiny nubs and couldn’t believe it.

  • Doctor says baby is supposed to get shots at 2,4,6,9,12,15,18&24mnts but that’s here in the u.s. I’m confused when you say no more shots until 1yr.

  • thank you @channelmom the hits help me so much during pregnancy an right now my baby is close to 4 months im excited to see her first teeth

  • There is so much wrong in this video. Screen time for babies, who is doing that? They should’t sit with 4 months and most will not crawl in this age. And so on…

  • Vaccinations are a choice, I just hope other mums out there don’t feel pressured into giving them to their baby, you just don’t have to do it! And don’t, if you’re unsure and your gut doesn’t feel right about it, listen to yourself. You know what’s best for your baby. Not youtube, your doctor or anyone else.

  • I enjoyed this video but it’s sad how they vaccinate infants, I recommend parents to wait to vaccinate until kids are 5-6 years of age. Some kids have negative reactions to these medals, and mercury.

  • I feel very strange, I am now 6 weeks Postpartum, at 3 weeks I was already back to the way I was before (apart from my hips that are 5 cm wider and my breasts are bigger). Now my waist is 66 CM (was 68 before pregnancy), my hips are at 108 (was 105) and chest at 99(was 94). Is that even normal? I did get some stretch marks thought, but who cares about some tiger stripes. <3

  • Hi!my baby is 3 months old. He use to breastfeed and bottle feed but since about 2 weeks now he is refusing the bottle. Any help on how I can get him to take the bottle?

  • Unfortunately, we have skipped two vaccinations because of the pandemic.:( worried about our little one. she is now always fussy, hard to sleep. What more once she took her vaccinations. Goodluck to us!

  • My LO has been teething since she was 2 months old so I always keep her dummies in the fridge (she doesn’t like teething toys), and sometimes on really bad teething days make her feeds in advance and pop them in the fridge so they’re nice and cool so she still eats enough and doesn’t suffer the symptom of lack of appetite. But her favourite thing to chomp on is my finger, and I feel I’ll have permanent gum marks she’s now 4 months old and teething more than ever.

  • WHAT???? Here in Canada, vaccination are at birth, 2month, 4month, 6month, 12month, 18month and 4years… after that they have shots at school too! Maybe it’s because we have free health care but it sucks for the children they end up hating nurses and doctors, i guess the upside is that they are protected!

  • My little boy is teething and its so painful when he bites onto my nipple ��. He does it more when his dad is around then they both laugh at afterwards

  • All the drool!! Where is it coming from:)No teeth yet though. I’m in the US and we vaccinate at 6 months but with a little tylenol he usually is good.

  • Our little one just turned 4 months on the 19th. The only difference with our little one is his first teeth are closer to the back than the front.

  • I like your videos because they describe the baby after having a baby and sharing other people’s advice on babies and especially like the good bad and ugly. Thank you for making these videos they’re very helpful.

  • my twinnies are just, I dont know.. adorable and they move a lot. one of them wants to sleep on his stomach �������������� I really need to check all the time. They are both sick now though, teethinf please not yet. wish me luck. I have to deal with two babies teething.

  • My baby is coming up to four months, can definitely relate to some of these! Enjoying the updates, loving watching my little one grow and finding out what I can expect:)

  • My child started bubbling at age of three I mean years, is that OK? Hope in the next few decades he will be able to say, Mommy. The doctor said he might be having delayed speech because of too strong sucking, so I don’t have a reason to blame vaccines. Overall is a very calm baby just my husband wants to divorce me. I don’t understand why he cant wear earplugs?

  • my baby girl had her first tooth two days before turning 3months. I didn’t even know. she did have fever and running yummy the Whole week before.

  • My baby had his first teeth at 1month 1/2 and rolls on his own, my question is, is it okaay to give him oat cereal at 4 month???

  • My Karen is getting more adorable. She’s laughing and smiling more often and she is easily amused by my excited expression when I’m talking to her. But is it okay if I get her to watch TV? She’s so excited when she’s watching anything on TV. From cartoon to volleyball game and even some hardcore action scenes from Scott Adkins’ movie (the last one is totally not recommended for your babies). I know that it’ll probably bad for her eyes but since it makes her really happy, I have her watch for about 10 -15 minutes.
