It’s blessed to parents who first see their children smile, know how to hold things, wave, and develop to different stages.

In the first 2 years, babies have extreme developments in body and mind. The following information can help you find out whether or not your babies have slow developments in comparison to others.

1.    Smile (8 weeks old)

An infant can’t smile until they’re 8 weeks old. At that time, the mental system and eyesight are developed enough to smile at somebody in respond.

Smile is the first social skills of babies and a sign of emotional developments. Your babies can now show you different emotions: they recognize whether you’re happy or angry.

2.    Pique (2-3 months old)

In the womb, babies can turn their body, then they start kicking. If your babies are strong enough, they can act like they’re in a pet. The can also startle and cry in the womb.

After the labor, about 2-3 months later, babies can overturn their body when lying on the back. It takes them 2 months later to turn their body back to the lying pose because the latter requires coordination and strength. You don’t need to teach children to turn their body up-side-down, but just lay them at a safe place, and they can do it themselves.

3.    Grab and hold (3-4 months old)

The skills of grabbing and holding things are developed when children are playing with themselves or their parents.

After a few months from the labor, babies can react with their hands, for example, when they want to grab a dummy. By watching people picking things, babies learn to handle things with their hands. At the same time, they also know how to play with toys like shaking some toys to make sounds, which teaches them a lesson of cause and result. The skills of grabbing and holding things are developed when children are playing themselves or their parents.

4.    Hugs (5 months old)

Your babies quickly know how to hug their parents and relatives as well as pets, teddy bears, or anything making them feel comfortable, by watching people hugging each other. They can also hug themselves.

Some babies don’t like hugging. That’s because some babies just naturally love doing that while some are busy discovering and forget the hugging. Therefore, hug your babies before going to sleep or watching a book together.

5.    Play peek-a-boo (6 months old)

This is a simple game that babies could play so many times. Once babies understand the concept of comparative permanence, although they don’t see your face, they can see your hands moving. After a few months, they can join hiding themselves with you. To increase the fun:

·         Sit near children so that they can see your eyes. That will help children focus on what you’re doing.

·         Ask them where you are; your voice can comfort them, exhibit your presence.

·         Make voices to make the game more interesting.
