BABY EINSTEIN: Your Curious 4-month-old

Motherly in partnership with Baby Einstein

Your baby is becoming more and more confident as she discovers her world.

Make the most of their milestones:

It’s true what they say—the days feel long, but these months of milestones are flying by! You’ve officially entered your baby’s fourth month, and your little one is able to do so much more. Our fun and simple guide to play time will help you encourage that natural desire for exploration—in a way that will keep you both engaged.

Your baby is fascinated by other people—especially you, mama!—and has started to show more emotions. You’ve also probably noticed her playing around with more sounds as she tries to communicate, and her head and arms have become more stable. It’s the perfect moment for toys, like this light bar, that encourage tummy time and can grow with her as she begins to sit up.

Here are a few suggestions to make the most of your baby’s fourth month.

Thinking
Your baby shows more emotion.
Try This: Respond to emotions with empathy to create a foundation of trust.

Engaging
She is fascinated by people watching.
Try This: Interact often by playing, talking and cuddling.

Communicating
Your baby is realizing that you respond to her sounds.
Try This: Continue to respond to show you are there for her.

Moving
Her head is more stable and she can push up during tummy time.
Try This: Put interesting toys like the Glow and Discover Light Bar in front of her to encourage her to spend more time on her tummy and reach out.

Your postpartum life:

You may be getting ready to go back to work now. If you’re feeling stressed, that’s totally normal. Trust that your baby will be okay! Make your time together count with fun activities that encourage her naturally curious personality. Toys that light up and play music will engage her senses in fun, new ways.

Now that the “fourth trimester” is over, you’re really starting to hit your stride with your baby. We’re sending you a high-five, mama!
