4 Week Old Baby Development

4 Week Old Baby Development

What can you expect when your baby is four weeks old?

Can you believe your baby is already almost one month old? By now youve probably mastered the nappy changes and are starting to get the hang of this whole parenting thing, but of course, you#39;ll still have a few questionshellip;

How should a 4-week-old baby be physically developing?

By the four-week mark, your baby will start growing one inch per month and gaining 140-200 grams a week.

Their hearing is also fully developed after one month, which means they will begin to listen for the source of sounds and notice when youre making loud noises around the room. With somewhat stronger neck muscles, they should start lifting their head briefly when they lie on their stomach, and even turn it from side to side!

One month in their vision should be improving, as is their ability to focus. However, it takes a lot of effort to do this, so they may look cross-eyed at some points. To help this, hold something in front of their face and move it from side to side slowly, they should start to try and follow it.

How should a 4-week-old baby be cognitively developing?

By now, your baby is starting to notice all the new things going on around them- including their hands and feet. Since they dont understand that they are a different person from you, they are unlikely to know exactly what their hands or feet are, but soon they will be able to co-ordinate abit better.

As well as being able to recognise sounds they heard in the womb- including the theme tune to your favourite TV show- they may also be able to recognise familiar faces now. Its a great idea to hold up a mirror in front of them to make funny faces, then they can even start to recognise themselves. Dont be too upset if they dont recognise you though, as their memory is still only just developing properly.

Continue having conversations with your baby and allowing them to focus on your face and watch your facial movements. They should start copying them and even reaching out for your face soon enough.

Youre one month early if youre worried about this, babies dont need any jabs till their two months old. When that time comes, and it will be here sooner than you think, we have some advice for you on how to keep your baby calm during vaccinations here.

Your baby will be sleeping up to 18 hours a day for at least the first two months, of course this will be throughout the day, not just when you want some shut-eye! You may be starting to feel the effects of exhaustion at this point, in which case here are some handy sleep tips for new parents.

One great piece of advice is to perfect swaddling if you haven#39;t already, as it creates the womb feeling they were so used to before bursting into the world.

You may be settling into a better sleeping schedule now, which means less interruptions for eating. However, night time eating is still quite frequent for one month olds, so soldier on with those sleepless nights.

For a guideline feeding amount, weigh your baby and then feed them about 150ml-200ml per kilo. Although dont worry if your baby seems to be overeating, she know how much she should or shouldnt eat at this stage and will only eat when she wants to. Whether you#39;re breastfeeding or using formula, follow your baby#39;s lead.

If youre having trouble breastfeeding, it might be time to seek help and make sure theres nothing else going on, so book an appointment with your GP and ask for some support. In the meantime, check out these tips for the best positions to try when breastfeeding.

If your baby is crying for hours on end, three times a week for at least three weeks, she might be suffering with Colic. It affects up to 40% of babies, but that doesnt make it any easier to deal with. Talk to your doctor if you notice your baby is crying for hours for no reason- and check out our tips on how to deal with colic.

Worried your baby isnt regular enough? Dont fret, as long as theyre going between one and ten times a day ndash; plus wetting their nappy at least six times a day ndash; theyre perfectly fine. Check out our poo colour chart if your concerned that something isnt quite right with what youve been finding inside their nappy.

  • Finding their fingers and toes: Your baby is starting to realise they have some handy attachments ndash; their hands and feet! Dont worry if they still seem oblivious to them though, as each baby will develop at their own pace.
  • Let the cooing commence: Finally, a break from the crying, your baby will realise they can make some other noises too. That means the cutest cooing sounds are bound to begin while you chat away to your baby.

What problems should parents of a 4-week-old baby be aware of?

  • Sleep deprivation: You may be almost getting used to living off no sleep by now, but just in case youre not weve devised a list of energy boosting foods. Plus, some mummy beauty products to disguise all those sleepless nights!
  • Postnatal Depression: Your hormones should be settled by now and the baby blues finally over. If youre still struggling with feelings of failure, or as though everything could go wrong and that its all your fault, you may be experiencing postnatal depression. With one in ten women experiencing postnatal depression, its something you must talk to your doctor about to ensure the best possible recovery. If youre unsure whether your experiencing postnatal depression or your baby blues hormones are clinging on, check out these key differences.
