Babies’ necks can prop their heads, so they are very interested in observing the outside world.

4-month-old babies have outstanding development in controlling the moves of their heads and limbs.

1.  Babies’ brains have been developed

Practical studies show that early experience and awareness in the first stage of their lives will be bricks forming their thought, learning, and development in intelligence later.

A newborn baby’s brain has 100 billions of cells. These cells will be connected into a grid as a mature brain. Before the age of 3, babies’ brains will form about 1 million billion of connections. These connections are built based on babies’ hobbies, discoveries, and process they have learnt from the world around.

2.  Understand familiar games

Through moms’ expression, look, and attitude, babies learn many things. When they hit a toy, or reach and shake a tintinnabulum, connections in their brains will be formed. Incredibly, these connections will help them throw basketball accurately, solve quickly and exactly arithmetic problems, or play guitar skillfully some day.

Obviously, babies will learn many interesting things through their favorite activities. If they enjoy lying supine and touch toy, lie beside and talk to them. If they want to be held, gently hold them and describe interesting things of the outside world through your prism. They must be very interesting.

Developing babies’ interests, hobbies from the first years of their lives is what you have to do to germinate their talent.

3.  Massage 101

Stroking is a simple but extremely effective way to help babies’ brains develop early and strengthen maternal/paternal love. Embracing or rubbing babies when they are sleepy is a method to release important hormone for their growth.

Studies show that babies that are regularly massaged gain weight faster and sleep deeper than those who are not. Babies who are massaged also secrete less cortisol hormone limiting growth and development.

4.  Read book with babies

It is never too early to begin reading book with babies. Start with small, hard books that have many pictures. The ways babies read book are touching the cover, trying to turn the page, watching you read attentively, and even tasting the book.

Babies may only be interested in book for a while, but anyway it is still very good for their development. Your alternate low and high voice really attracts babies and makes a good impression on them. Besides, touching book is also important experience.

5.  Moving skills

Some studies suppose that babies know how to turn later since when sleeping, they are placed supine to avoid sudden infant death syndrome. Therefore, when babies are awake, sometimes placing them on prostrate lying is very important. This helps their bodies get healthier.

In the 4th month, babies have outstanding development in controlling the moves of their heads and limbs. After they are turned to prostrate lying, they can lift their heads, prop by their arms to lift their chests and rotate their heads. They will keep this posture in a few seconds.

Babies’ legs are getting straighter and straighter after every week. They can stretch straight their legs when being hold, and try to press them to flat surface.

Babies’ bodies are focusing strength on their necks. Now, their necks can prop heads, so they are very interested in observing the outside world. They still need parents to prop their backs when sitting, but they are trying to learn many ways to control their heads.

While their legs and necks are developing and becoming stronger, so are their arms. They enjoy waving both arms at once, brandishing them up and down, but now they are practicing to control actions more accurately.

6.  Their teeth begin to sprout

Babies’ first teeth are prepared readily. The first sprout tooth may appear in this month.

Signals of teeth sprouting include:

o   Salivation (might have appeared many times at the week before tooth sprouts)

o   Appearance of red rash due to too much salivation

o   Putting things into mouth and gnaw because of itch

o   Feeling uncomfortable (usually at mid-night)

o   Refusing to suck milk

o   Pulling ears or rubbing cheeks due to hurting

o   Diarrhea
