During this month it's quite likely that you'll get your first smile from your baby, and that's a moment that will stay with you forever! Baby probably won't be sleeping through the night yet, but may be sleeping for longer periods at a time - this is a blessing, because no doubt your energy levels will need a good recharge by now!
Baby will have a checkup during this month, which usually falls between the sixth and eighth week of life. The healthcare professional will check various features, such as: baby's weight, height, and their cranial circumference; eyes, heart, and genitals; and they will ask about baby's feeding, growth, and sleeping habits.
After this checkup your baby may receive their first batch of vaccinations; against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio, HiB, pneumococcal diseases, Rotavirus, and Meningitis B.
Birthdays of children who are now 2 months old are from Monday 4 Dec. 2023 through Wednesday 3 Jan. 2024.
