Week 24: Your little one is already storing memories. Thanks to this infant developmental milestone, they recognize names, basic words like "no" and "bye-bye," and familiar sounds. They look when you point out objects and they may also point at things when you name them.
Newborn Milestones. Week 1: It's only been a week, but your newborn already knows they can rely on you. By now, they can recognize your voice, and the familiarity helps them adjust to the strange new world outside the womb. They can't understand your words, but talk to them often as an expression of love and comfort.
These baby development milestones are absolutely adorable! Week 14: Rattles and dangling toys do more than amuse your baby at 14 weeks; they also develop their hand and eye skills.
Use this baby development chart to learn what to expect during the first year. If you're curious about your baby's growth, check out these guidelines for 52 wonderful weeks of development.
Week 16: Your little one is getting stronger by the day. They may protest when placed on their stomach, but they need tummy time every day for exercising their neck, chest, rib cage, and arm muscles. These muscle groups are necessary for rolling over, sitting up, and crawling. Join them on the floor and talk outside of their range of vision. They'll be distracted from fussing for a few minutes while they're busy looking for you!
You can help them connect sounds with meanings by labeling things: point to pictures in their books, and touch their eyes, nose, and mouth while naming them. Before long, they'll be calling you both by name! Week 20: By now, your baby knows exactly who you are, and they're even starting to know themselves.
Week 2: In their second week of life, your baby can focus on objects 8 to 14 inches away—about the distance between their eyes and yours during nursing.
