..By the third month, your child shows more interest in playthings and answers to common state of affairs of aroused actions, smiles and a variety of vocalisations such as cries, cooing sounds and chuckles.

  • Laughs and vocalises with increasing tone.
  • Takes an increasing interest in playthings.
  • Cries loudly when showing an emotional need.

Increasing His Development

  • Use a practical infant chair so that he can look closely at what you are doing during an activity.
  • Arrange toys on a blanket or play mat on the floor and let him lie on his tummy and play with the toys for short periods of time.
  • Connect objects above his cot which makes a noise when he touches it.
  • Make it a habit to sing him nursery rhymes.
  • Encourage contact with other children and adults.

Keeping Him Safe

  • At all times protect him from exposure to sunlight
  • Use a special sun-protection cream, a sun hat to protect his neck and face, and a pram canopy when he's out with you during the summer.
  • Never leave small objects within his reach as he explores everything in his mouth.
  • Always check for an appropriate safety symbol when buying toys for him.
