Development at 3 months for your baby;
Watches own hand movements
Holds a rattle placed in hand
Focuses in all directions
Vocalises when spoken to
Coos and smiles easily
Pleasure response to familiar situations, such as bathing
Follows moving person with eyes, especially when feeding.
Breastfeeding has an impact on both the short and long term health of mothers and babies.
• Not breastfeeding can increase the child’s risk of illnesses, infections, SIDS, obesity and diabetes.
• Not breastfeeding can increase the mother’s risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and postpartum depression.
