My baby's development:
In month four, your baby's personality has probably grown even more pronounced. By the end of the month, she might be laughing out loud and attempting to carry a conversation. Try imitating her laugh and communicating with her. This is also the time to start learning how you can help protect her from diseases.
Breast milk is the best way to supply your baby with the vital nutrients for growth and development, and to build your baby's immune system.2
If you've chosen to start supplementing breast feeding with formula, or formula feeding exclusively it's comforting to know that Similac® Advance® is our closest formula ever to breast milk. In fact, Similac® Advance® with Omega-3 & 6 is the ONLY formula containing galactooligosaccharides and lutein*, a nutrient babies can only get from breast milk or Similac® Advance®.†Learn about Similac® Advance®
Well-baby visits to the pediatrician are probably part of your monthly routine by now. These visits are important for you and your 4-month-old baby because:
They are your opportunity to make sure your baby is growing and developing properly, and to ask any questions that might come up.
They are the time when your baby will get the immunizations she needs (and make up any she might have missed).
The organisms that cause some childhood diseases have not disappeared. Regular vaccinations are still the only way to protect your baby — now and for years to come — so be sure to get your 4-month-old baby immunized to help keep her healthy.
There are several ways you can help your baby develop language skills and understanding.
Every 4-month-old baby develops at a different rate. You should not be concerned if your baby does something later or earlier than other babies around the same age. Here is a general list of what your baby might be able to do around her fourth month:
