Congratulations! You survived the first month with your new baby as a brand new dad. There are many many months and years ahead of you but let’s see what kind of milestones your baby might have already hit so early in their life.

Remember that these are just some milestones that your baby can achieve, if your baby isn’t achieving some of these milestones, you don’t have to be too worried. There will always be babies that pick up these skills faster than others, your baby might be slightly slower in learning these skills

Baby: “I Got It” – 1 Month Old (easier challenge milestones)

  • Lifts their head when they are on their tummy.
  • Responds to some sound
  • Stares at people’s faces
  • Light attracts your baby
  • Gravitates towards black-and-white patterns
  • Being able to focus on objects that are relatively close, 8 to 12 inches away

Baby: “Challenge Accepted” – 1 Month Old (hard challenge milestones)
