Get stool routine examination done. If there is no blood or mucous, no severe pain in abdomen, no fever then you can wait without any medication but for ors. If she is active passing urine, taking meals nothing to worry.

The Growing Child: 1 to 3 Months

MBBS, Diploma in Child Health
Pediatrician, Hyderabad
The Growing Child: 1 to 3 Months

The Growing Child: 1 to 3 Months

How much will my baby grow? 

While all babies may grow at a different rate, the following indicates the average for boys and girls 1 to 3 months of age:

  • Weight: average gain of about 1½ to 2 pounds each month

  • Height: average growth of over 1 inch each month

  • Head size: average growth of about ½ inch each month

What can my baby do at this age?

Close up of mother smiling and looking down at a baby sleeping in her arms

As your baby begins to grow, you will notice new and exciting abilities that develop. Babies at this age begin to relax the tight muscle tone of newborns and begin extending their arms and legs more. While babies may progress at different rates, the following are some of the common milestones your baby may reach in this age group:

  • Some of the newborn protective reflexes begin to disappear

  • Neck muscles become stronger, head bobs then is held erect

  • Turns head from side to side when placed on belly

  • Brings hands or objects to mouth

  • Looks at hands

  • Follows light, faces, objects

  • Listens to sounds

  • Opens and closes hands

  • Holds, then drops a rattle or other object

  • Active leg movements

  • At the end of 3 months:

    • Raises head and chest when placed on belly

    • Beginning to reach hands to objects, may bat at hanging object with hands

What can my baby say?

It is very exciting for parents to watch their babies become social beings that can interact with others. While every baby develops speech at his or her own rate, the following are some of the common milestones in this age group:

  • Begins to imitate some sounds (coos, vowel sounds)

  • Cries become more purposeful and are different for hunger, fatigue, and other needs

What does my baby understand?

A baby's understanding and awareness of the world around him or her increases during this time. While babies may progress at different rates, the following are some of the common milestones in this age group:

  • Knows familiar voices, especially of mother and father

  • Smiles in response to others

  • Responds to social contact, may coo

  • Moves arms, legs, body in rhythm with other's voice

How to help increase your baby's development and emotional security

Young babies need the security of a parent's arms, and they understand the reassurance and comfort of your voice, tone, and emotions. Consider the following as ways to foster emotional security of your newborn:

  • Hold your baby face to face and make eye contact.

  • Talk to your baby with a soothing, animated voice throughout the day while dressing, bathing, feeding, or playing with your baby.

  • Sing to your baby.

  • Give your baby rattles and soft toys with different sounds.

  • Let your baby hear different sounds (for example, wind chime, ticking clock, soft music, or music box).

  • Show your baby bright pictures of black and white images.

  • Hang a mobile with bright objects above your baby.

  • Call your baby by name.

  • Hold your baby during feedings and provide comfort when he or she is distressed and cuddling when happy.

Pcv is pneumococcal vaccine which is given to Prevent some of the known strains of virus which cause pneumonia in children.

My daughter's age is 3 and half years. She has constipation problem after every 2 or 3 days.What can i do?
constipation is easily manageable through a prescribed diet. I will prescribe a high fiber diet customized to your case. Do avoid over-the-counter laxatives. Increasing exercise is also important if you lead a sedentary lifestyle. For stubborn constipation in I may recommend a non-digestible sugar called lactulose or specially formulated electrolyte solutions. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Worm infestation is related to hygiene. The whole family needs deworming. He should do nail biting or finger sucking. Describe the worms- small or long?

For such young children medicines like antibiotics cannot be given for loose motions just keep him hydrated and give ORS 4-5 times a day.

You have to check his cbc and tft to make sure there is no disease. However if he is active and playful weight need not be a concern. You can keep in touch with me.

My son's age is 5. He has dust allergy normally he starts to cough a lot but in india doctor used to give Allegra and it used to work. Last 5 months back shifted to London. For the last 15 days onwards, he is constantly coughing but very less during the night time but the coughing increases after having any food or milk. The doctors are saying the chest is clear and has given ventilin evohaler.

MD PULMONARY, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
As the chest is clear and ventilin evohaler is not showing benifit, you can try allegra surup again. As the cough is after feed, every care should be taken that child is not aspirating during feed, which can occur if feed taken in hurry or in faulty posture.

2 years 3 months is too young to diagnose hyperactivity disorder. There is a broad range of behaviour that can be considered normal at this age. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is diagnosed after the age of 7 years with detailed assessment in 2 different settings.
