Cognitive Child Development One Month: Intellectual Development Of Your One Month Old Child

Cognitive Child Development One Month...

Cognitive Child Development One Month
...By one month your child's starting to smile in answering to your smiles.

He may copy facial expressions, and is able to follow objects with his eyes.


  • Identifies his most important carers and show this by answering to them with a joining together of excited actions and smiles.

  • Behaves in a particular way with an adult holding him up face-to-face, but happening at the same time looking, listening, vocalising and moving his arms and legs actively.
  • Loves to look closely at action such as trees in the wind, or moving bright objects placed within his area of vision.

Increasing His Development

  • Use brightly coloured mobiles and wind chimes over his cot or changing mat.
  • Sing while feeding or bathing him.

Keeping Him Safe

Never allow toys in his pram or cot. It could cause suffocation if it gets into his mouth.

Activities For Him

  • Choose a reflective coloured toy for him.
  • Keep the toy about 1 metre ahead of him.
  • Take time to move the toy from line to line so that his eyes can accompany it.
  • As he gets better at accompanying the action, waver the toy at each way.
