Your Baby at 1 Month

Boys Town Pediatrics

Milestones is an exciting and important way to track the development of your baby.

Here are things you might see your baby doing around 1 month of age. 

Your baby can:

  • During tummy time, start to lift his upper body
  • Stretch and kick her feet
  • Open and shut her hands and grip objects
  • Attempt to reach for dangling objects
  • Stare at things, but will not grab for them yet

Even at 1 month of age, your baby's language and communication skills are developing.

Your baby can:

  • Cry and fuss when hungry, wet, tired, in pain, or when he wants to be held
  • Hear mom's voice best because it reminds him of food and warmth
  • Make gurgling and cooing sounds when happy and content

Every child is different. Some of these behaviors and milestones generally occur at certain ages, however, a wide range of growth and behavior for each age is normal.

Remember, if you have any concerns about your child's development, check with your pediatrician.

​Every milestone is important to your child's growth and development. Boys Town Pediatrics provides general guidelines on what to expect when your child reaches 1 month of age.
