Every toy you buy for your three month-old baby does not have to bring out his Einstein factor. A mixture of fun and learning works best. Attractive colors, funny sounds, mobiles and rattles interest him. It is never too early to read to baby even though all he seems to want is to grab the book and chew on it.
Preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome
You can significantly reduce the risk of SIDS or cot death by putting baby to sleep on her back, using a firm mattress, and preventing overheating. It might be a good idea to learn infant CPR techniques if you are worried about SIDS.
Choosing a babysitter
It is a good idea to let baby get used to other people besides mom and dad. Even if you are not going back to work, an occasional night out will work wonders for your relationship with your spouse. There are several child-care alternatives you can choose from. Whatever you choose, watch out for any changes or signs of discomfort in your baby. Your baby's disposition is the best indicator of the quality of childcare he is getting.
In baby's third month, her horizons are slowly expanding. Entertain your baby and get entertained in return. You are just beginning to reap the rewards of parenting.
