3-Month Old Baby Growth & Development


  • At 3 months old, your baby may start sleeping through the night, But for few babies, sleeping through the night or sleeping for long hours will take time, Its hard, I know. 
  • Major developments around your baby's third month:
  • 1. Your baby will start to roll over either left or right. Few babies roll on both the sides and soon will become an expert by slowly perfecting their roll over skill.
  • 2. Drooling can be noticed around this time. Too much drool can cause rash around their cheeks. Wipe the drools often to avoid them getting the infection or rash.
  • 3. Head support is essential till baby's 5th month, but it is getting better and stronger neck support for your baby.
  • 4. Your baby will start smiling more and giggles will never end.
  • 5. Baby will try to talk more and start noticing the people around.
  • 6.Since baby's bladder is growing everyday, the frequency of urinating will start reducing which in turn reduce the diaper changes. Make sure to change diapers every 2 to 3 hours to avoid diaper rash.
  • Weight of your baby can be around 4kgs to 6kgs. They are just number and there is nothing to be worried or concerned if baby is underweight or overweight. Enjoy the time with your baby. Everything is well and good as long as your baby is active.
  • Vaccination is also very important for your growing baby. Make sure to schedule your baby's doctor visits and vaccines.
  • If your baby is sucking finger, especially thumb-sucking, there is nothing to be concerned about. It is a natural process that happen in most babies for them to keep busy. Mostly babies suck fingers when they are hungry. So, understand their cues and feed them accordingly.
  • Color and Consistency of your baby stool will determine how well your baby is digesting either mother's milk or the formula milk. Be concerned only if your baby is having runny poop more than 10 times a day. More on Baby Stool Color & Consistency will be published soon as a separate article.
