Abilities of a 3 Months Old Baby

Dear Ranamma & Ajay Nana, Good Evening.

Here is an article written about the abilities of 3 months old baby: Please read once just asses the growth of the baby.

At three months, a baby's favorite toy may be her hands. She'll use them to explore her facial features, and she might join her hands together and let each hand take a turn playing with the other. She'll enjoy interacting with you, too.
Things You'll Need
Ball For A Baby
Baby Toys

1 Step One
Put her on her tummy on the floor. Roll a ball about 2 feet in front of her. With a little practice she'll be able to coordinate her eye and hand movements and reach toward the ball.

2 Step Two

Ring a bell while she's watching, and then ring it again just out of her line of vision. See if she'll turn and search for the bell with her eyes.

3 Step Three
Play music with a strong rhythm. Try a variety songs - fast, slow, loud, soft - and soon your baby will learn to recognize the difference.

4 Step Four
Bring your baby outside. Place her under a tree, and he'll enjoy listening to the leaves, watching light and shadow, and seeing birds and airplanes go by.

5 Step Five
Sew a bell securely into a wristband and put it on her wrist or leg. Noticing the sound it makes when she moves will help her develop body awareness and eye-hand coordination.

Tips & Warnings
Respect your baby's cues. If a particular activity seems stressful or frustrating, stop and give it a try another day. Remember that all babies develop at different speeds, usually with spurts and plateaus. Consult with your pediatrician if you have any concerns about your baby's development.

With Love, Amma - Nana
