The Second Month
A really lovely thing about the second month is that this is the time when most babies start to smile. There is no better feeling that when your precious baby first smiles at you!
Your little one may be starting to take a real interest in everything around them in their new big world. They may be looking around and listening and watching everything you do.
Remember that your baby is learning all the time - and learning mostly from you. You can help make your baby's world an even more wonderful place by having lots of cuddles, chats, walks and sing-a-longs.
The more attention you pay to your baby, the more he or she will respond.
