At one month old:
I like to look at black and white colors and patterns more than at other colors.
I roll part of the way from my back to my side.
I keep my hands or fingers slightly open most of the time.
Sometimes I root around and try to suck, even when I’m not feeding.
I make some throaty or gurgling sounds.
I need you to protect the soft spot on the top of my head.
I cry when I am hungry, wet or tired, or when I want to be held.
I may smile at you when I see you or hear you.
I make eye contact with you.
Loud noises, bright lights or rough handling scare me.
I’m often fussy in the evenings.
I turn my head sideways when I’m on my stomach.
My head wobbles if you don’t hold it. I need you to put your hand behind my head and neck.
I have learned that I will be fed when I am hungry.
