The baby of one month begins to know the world from external stimuli and affection and care of parents.

The one-month-old baby is very vulnerable, but at the same time is highly receptive to the lavish attentions of the mother and other caregivers, and in general, the stimuli of the environment.

A healthy, well-fed child is expected to increase about one kilogram of weight during this month and about four centimeters in size; The brain, the fastest growing organ in the uterus and during the first three years of extrauterine life, is measured indirectly by the increase in the head circumference (baby’s head) that grows by two centimeters in this month, from 34 to 36 centimeters on average.

The baby of one month loses the initial stiffness of his limbs, the pink color of his skin becomes less intense and his interest in the environment is greater. The senses and neuromuscular reflexes are the basis for their psychomotor development.

You will notice that the search for your breast or the bottle is more intense when you touch your cheek, as well as the suction when you feel something in your mouth.

You will notice that your baby intensely moves before a noise or strong stimulation, raises his arms and legs and makes movements as giving a hug, this is called Moro reflex.

Your baby can take with his hand everything that is put in it, for example, a finger or bell; As he does not yet possess the clamp mechanism, uses his hand like a claw. Likewise, if he is face down, he is able to raise his head and turn it to side and side.

During this stage your baby has great progress in the development of his senses. He keeps his eyes on moving objects or objects, although the sharpness of his vision only allows him to see clearly between twenty and forty centimeters of his eyes. Remember that your skin is very sensitive; So the caresses and massages are very stimulating. Also, listen well, enjoy the soft and loving voice, as well as music with a rhythm that reminds the heartbeats of the mother during intrauterine life. Perceive odors, especially that of your mom or caregiver, and flavors like that of your milk.

Their way of communicating is by crying with different tonalities according to their sensations. He also does it through expressions of his face, with facial responses, to see the expressions of other people. For example raise your eyebrows, open your eyes or smile.

The baby’s ability to receive external stimuli for the development of his senses and respond to them through his reflexes allows him to initiate rhythm, regularity and sequence in his actions that reach adaptation through assimilation according to his demands .

The part with greater sensitivity and pleasant sensation of your baby, is his mouth when sucking. This is why it is called the oral stage, which begins this month and lasts until approximately two years.

Parenting a month’s baby

As your baby receives care to meet your basic needs for affection, shelter and food, you gain confidence in the other people in your home, especially your mother or caregiver.

No matter what day or time it is important to act immediately when your one-month-old baby cries for help. Check if he is hungry (gently rub his cheek and if he responds quickly with his mouth trying to suck it is because he wants to eat), or if he is cold and simply requires that you dress him with affection, or if he needs the presence and physical contact of his Mom or caregiver to receive their expressions of affection, such as loading and hugging.

The proper feeding of your baby is fundamental, it is convenient to review the recommendations made by the pediatrician. You have to keep in mind your daily bath and change your diaper every time you have a bowel movement (whenever you need it).

Your baby will sleep most of the day. Provide a quiet place with the usual light and noise of the home. Lay it without a pillow and in the upright or side position. Take advantage when you are awake, especially during bathing and feeding, to talk, massage and stimulate. Wear comfortable, antiallergic dresses that allow you to easily move your four limbs; The use of mittens is not recommended.

Always give your baby lots of affection; Is the energy and motor of development, he perceives it and is the basis of his happiness.
