Did you feel like this month has gone by too quickly? I’d definitely agree with you there, for the first little while, your minutes become days. That was how it felt for me. Just remember to make sure that you get as much sleep as you can during these times because you won’t know when you will need to have that burst of energy and endurance to take care of your baby that got sick. If your baby hasn’t gotten sick yet and you don’t know what it feels like, I advise you keep it that way, it definitely took a toll.
Again, as a reminder that the milestones that I mention a little later are something that your baby may achieve when they hit their 2-month-old period. If your baby didn’t achieve all of the easier challenge milestones, it is perfectly fine. Your baby may learn all of these skills later in their babyhood. Some babies learn faster or slower than others and that is perfectly normal, if you are concerned about your baby’s growth, please contact your pediatrician.
