Child development in 3 months
In three months, the intensive physical and emotional development of the baby continues. You probably began to notice that his muscles became stronger, the movements became more coordinated, and the face acquired a meaningful expression on which the smile appeared more and more often.
In the first months of life, the child’s intense physical development takes place.
So, for the third month, the baby’s life on average is gaining 800 grams. And for the expired period of 2200 grams, that is if a child was born with a weight of 3200 grams, then in three months it should weigh 5400 grams. At the same time, I want to note that the weight of the child is a very variable parameter. Therefore, with good appetite and well-being of the child, small fluctuations are permissible, both in the large and in the smaller side.
The body length increases by 3 cm per month (for the elapsed period by 9 cm).
The head circumference increases by 1.5 cm, and the circumference of the chest by 2 cm per month.
At three months, the child should keep his head in a vertical position, and also keep it firmly on his stomach, leaning on his forearms.
The kid often smiles and he there is a revitalization complex at the sight of the mother or other close people. The complex of animation is manifested by a joyful expression on the face, a smile and joyful movements of the limbs, the kid fingering his legs and arms.
