Is your baby healthy enough?

Every new mom has doubts about milestones and growth of the baby, how much ever your baby looks healthy; you always worry about your baby’s health and growth. So, I felt the need to write this article as a comparison table.

This article will show how a healthy baby’s growth and milestones should usually be. By reading this you will know what to expect at what age and how to access them.

Your mom knows best, but even when she convinces you, you might still want to know few things for yourself. So this is for all the new moms who worry about their babies.

The various stages of growth and development regarding, gross & fine motor skills, language, personal & social for an infant.

Gross Motor Skills

  • 3 months – neck holding
  • 5 months – sitting with support
  • 8 months – sitting without support
  • 10 months – walking without support

Fine Motor Skills

  • 4 months – grasps a rattle or a ring when placed in hand
  • 5 months – Holds objects with both hands
  • 7 months – Holding objects with crude grasp from palm
  • 9 months – Holding small objects between index finger and thumb

Language

  • 1 month – Turns head to sound
  • 6 months – Monosyllables
  • 9 months – Bi syllables
  • 1 Year – 2 words with meaning

Personal & Social

  • 2 months – social smile
  • 3 months – Recognizing mother
  • 6 months – smiles at mirror image
  • 9 months – waves hand
  • 1 year – plays simple ball game

 

For first one year baby should increase rapid weight but height will be increased only by 25 cm till baby reaches 1 year. Height will increase rapidly after 1 year.

Weight

  • 0-4 months – 1kg/month ( 30g/day )
  • 5-8 months – 0.75 kg / month (20g/day )
  • 9-12 months – 0.50 kg/ month (15g/day)

According to Indian council of medical research these are the median values of an average Indian baby.

Weight is explained in kilograms and height in cm. These are median values, it is just for average reference and there is no need for your baby to be weighing accurately including grams.
