Your 4-month-old is growing more and more alert by the day. Babies at this age love to express themselves through smiles, laughs, gurgles, and coos.
By month four, your baby’s weight will likely have doubled from birth. If you’re concerned that your child isn’t eating well or isn’t gaining enough weight, talk to your pediatrician. To receive adequate calories, most 4-month-old babies continue to wake at night for feeding. It is more common for infants to sleep 5-6 hours straight at night. It is important to begin putting your baby down drowsy, but not fully asleep into the crib to help her learn to self sooth. You can help her to fall asleep by talking softly or patting her back.
