Growth & Development Milestones: Newborns

Prefers Soft Sensations
Type of Milestone: Cognitive

Practice with Baby: If you are having a difficult time calming your baby or getting her to sleep, wrap her in a snuggly flannel blanket or a blanket with satin trim. The cozy fabric might help her relax.

Mama Must-Know: Pulling away from coarse and scratchy materials is another response that helps Baby avoid potentially harmful materials.

Moves Head from Side to Side While on Stomach
Type of Milestone: Physical

Practice with Baby: Gently bounce, sway, dance, and rock with your baby to help him develop a sense of movement. If you use a swing or bouncy seat, make sure he gets plenty of free time on the floor to wiggle.

Mama Must-Know: When Baby is upright, make sure to keep his head supported. It will be very wobbly and prone to flopping around until he is several months old.

Dislikes Rough or Abrupt Handling
Type of Milestone: Physical

Practice with Baby: If your baby is picked up too quickly, she might cry. Hold, rock, and cuddle her to soothe her. Also give infant massage a try. Gently rub her back and belly, and lightly stroke her arms and legs. Some hospitals offer infant massage classes.

Mama Must-Know: Babies are very perceptive to their parents' moods, and the way they are touched is one way they sense affection or stress.
