Also the baby will begin to bring their hands to their mouths so chew or to suck.
Intellectual Development-
They will begin to copy what’s going on, therefore from this a baby/infant will watch someone’s facial expression intently, this is so they can try and work out who they are etc., he/she will also follow moving objects in the directions that you move them, they will also recognize similar objects and certain people at a distance, from this they will begin to start using their hands and eyes in coordination, and finally they will smile at the sound of someone’s voice, e.g. their parents as they will begin to acknowledge the sounds of people’s voices and their faces.
They will smile and coo in response to others, this is a way of a child/infant talking to you, this stage the baby/infant will begin to babble to you or even to themselves, this is them having a conversation with you or with themselves and then will begin to smile when you say things such as; “really” “tell me more about it”, from this the baby/infant will start to imitate some sounds and will turn their head towards the direction of the sound that they have heard.
Emotional Development-
At 3 months the baby will begin to develop a smile when they’re feeling happy or when they see something that they like, as you can see a smile develops at a young age. A baby will now begin to enjoy playing with other people and will learn how to cry when something is wrong or when someone has upset them. Where we can verbally tell an individual what’s wrong a baby/infant is unable too, therefore this is why they show their emotions, or how they’re feeling therefore the only way that they can do this is through crying.
Also an infant will become more talkative, this is by copying facial expressions that you do to them, or they will try to copy some of the words that you say or the sound of some of the words that are being said to them, this is how they develop on their communication skills as they begin to get older and as they go through other life stages in later life. Therefore it is important that even when your baby is young, you talk to them, either though they will not understand what you’re saying to them or won’t be able to respond, they will still develop skills when it comes down to make noises and facial expressions. Also this gives the child/infant a range of different new skills to learn from different people as every individual does something different, therefore the baby/infant will be able to pick up on this.
Social Development-
At 3 months the baby will begin to develop a smile when they’re feeling happy or when they see something that they like, as you can see a smile develops at a young age. A baby will now begin to enjoy playing with other people and will learn how to cry when something is wrong or when someone has upset them. Where we can verbally tell an individual what’s wrong a baby/infant is unable too, therefore this is why they show their emotions, or how...
